What Blessed Fellowship!

Updated: Jul 9

A Temporary  Shift  7-9-24

I feel that the course (direction) that I took in the last couple of days ago, helped me to shift my mindset. Last week after being in Greensboro a few days, my brother in Christ and I visited one of my prayer partners and her husband.

Last Saturday, my god sister and I visited another sister in Christ, who was a member of my deceased mother’s “Gospel Group” It was such a blessed fellowship. We reminisced about the good ole days, and we thanked the Lord for how He has ordered our steps and how it gives us joy to find out we were in His will.

Yesterday, I met a cousin for the first time at Walmart (I go there everyday- part of my exercise). It was another blessing to meet a blood relative for the first time physically, although we are Facebook friends. This really brought joy to my heart!

Around noontime, I was picked up by my brother in Christ, and we went to visit another brother and his daughter. What a fellowship indeed!

Well folks, it was my desire to visit some people while in Greensboro, and some of those desires have been met. I feel as though the Lord granted me the desires of my heart, because “This may be the last time, we don’t know” However another plan did not take place because of the earthly loss of a dear friend.

The reason I am going this way with this part of the message is, we have plans yet they may not be in the Lord’s will. That’s why it’s important to say, “If the Lord’s will” It’s not wrong to plan, but our plans can change because they may not be according to God’s will.

Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit”;  whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.  Instead, you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that.” (James 4:13-15).

A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps (Proverbs 16:9) - The phrase "man plans but God decides" is a biblical proverb that means humans can make plans, but ultimately God is in control

We must remember that God is in total control, and when things don’t go according to our plans, it is necessary to trust the Lord, because He knows what is best. On that note, because one of my plans didn’t work out, it saddened my heart. Yet, our loving Father’s plan brought me joy!

Love and Peace,
