Limited Vision

What has God done in your past that you especially can look to as evidence of his presence with you? What “stream in the desert” is bubbling up for you now? (Serendipity Bible 10th Anniversary Edition, pp 1019-20).

God blesses me in two principal ways—he places me in locations that he chooses to best serve his purposes and he puts people in my life that are immeasurable blessings. His wisdom in all this far surpasses anything that I—with all too human judgment and desires—could possibly reach on my own. For all too often, what I think is the best for me is the worst possible and that which I want to avoid turns out to be the source of boundless blessings. God's relentless pursuit of my best interest in spite of stormy admixtures of worldly passions and prolonged periods of muddy rainy weather have brought me at last to the realization that it is not for me to understand but simply to do—to do his will according to my best lights and exercise as much as possible a childlike trust. 

Lena Horne - Stormy Weather (1943)
