Follow us, following Him.

"Sometimes I would like to ask God why He allows poverty, suffering, and injustice when He could do something about it." ...Well, why don't you ask Him?... "Because I'm afraid He would ask me the same question."

What's next Lord?

It's hard to live in America.

Some days it is worse than others, but every day a piece of me dreams of home.  Over the last few months, God has really been teaching me to be still.  "Be still and know that I am God."  I know He is God, but getting taken away by the things of this world and then hoping God will keep up, messes with that concept.  Be still, Amy.

I don't know how to do that.  When God gives me a prompting to do something for His kingdom, it's really hard to find the balance of "do" and "be".  I'm a doer.  Just being means that I am lazy, or so I think.  God has really revealed to me that He has this path all laid out, that it will be easy for me to see, IF I just walk in His ways.  Walk in His ways.  Gods plans for us are to walk in His ways.

Sometimes I feel like God is mean.  He only shows us a tiny glimpse of what is ahead. I don't think He allows us to see very far down His path for good reason.  When I can see where the path goes, then I forget to hold His hand during the journey.  He wants me to need Him. What do you have for me on this path today, Lord?

Help me to be content with where you have me today and not wishing for tomorrow.
