Although I was hoping to enjoy my Spring Break last week, the news that yet again I needed to wait really got me down. I KNOW that waiting until the summer would be better and less stressful, waiting until my body has healed even more would be the ideal situation, and waiting to save yet more money for the procedure would be perfect. But that word WAIT just kept ringing in my ears. But I am trying my best to realize that this is only a STUMBLING block in this marathon that I WILL FINISH!
I read this devotional this morning and it gave me the peace that I needed...
If you're outside walking and see something that could cause you to trip and fall, maybe a rock or a stick, you probably don't make a big deal about it and just go around it. However, if you are distracted, not looking where you're going, or if it's too dark to see, that same object can become a stumbling block.
Friend, in our spiritual journey, the enemy has strategically placed all kinds of stumbling blocks in our paths. When we make the Word of God our number one priority, it helps us to move forward with our eyes wide open. His Word lights our path and helps us see clearly where to step. When we love His Word, we keep our peace and avoid stumbling. Remember that the most important thing you can do is take time to read and meditate on His Word. His Word is life and strength to your body, and it will protect and direct your every step today!
"Great peace have they who love Your law, and nothing can make them stumble" ~Psalm 119:165
Nothing will make me stumble...
