Friday's Quote

"The safest place to be is within the will of God"
Anonymos

Not my will but God's will. This is so hard sometimes. We want what we want and when we want it. Sometimes what we want is not good for us and then we realize later I made a mistake. I should have listened to God.
I pray for God's will to be done in my life...but do I really allow it to be done?

What about you ...do you allow God's will to be done or do you want it to be your way?

I agree with that quote... I just find it all to easy to jump out of God's will at times when I want the control... I must surrender...

Thanks for stopping by yesterday... come back anytime...

Blessings!!!

I admit it - I want it my way. But then when I finally get out of His way, I always see that He is always faithful and His way really is best. Great quote and great post.

Thank you so much for your kind words on my blog and for adding me to your blogroll and I'd like to reciprocate! Have a blessed day!

Oh Darlene---I am praying so hard that I KNOW God's will and stay there. I am praying that I KNOW the direction He has for me. So that I don't waste valuable time wandering in the wilderness!
This is a really good quote!

Hi Darlene ((Hugz))
Oh so many times I tend to run ahead of him and decide to do something, and I hear him speaking to my heart to slow down, to wait upon him, to be still and know that he is God. Even our thoughts can go ahead of him, thinking ahead of what may or may not happen, we must guard our thought life as well.
