A New Entry

A Beautiful Entry Foyer
Such a beautiful home!  The elements and colors of this entry are well balanced and the gray/blue color scheme is calming and soothing!  Love it!!!  I love colors and styles that are calming, a fountain in the background with water trickling down......just saying all is well!  Peacefulness.  Isn't that what we all hope for in our lives?  Peace does come...... but often times it's after a storm or an event that we would gladly wish away.  The Bible says, "Since ancient times no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides you, who acts on behalf of those who wait for him.  You come to the help of those who gladly do right, who remember your ways."  Isaiah 64:4-5  There are other Scriptures that remind us of those times when things are difficult in the life of someone we love.  Trust me, I know, I've been there too. Romans 8:28 encourages us that God truly is working all things together for good!  Even the not so calm places in life's path.  When I was young, at church we sang a song THE LORD KNOWS THE WAY THROUGH THE WILDERNESS......all we have to do is follow. Wilderness experiences are not that pleasant.  They are tough places where ones feels lost and without clear direction. Websters defines it as a waste land or overgrown land with no settlers.  Honestly, I do not believe that God waste any wilderness experience but I do believe that He doesn't want us to settle there.  He wants us to learn the lessons of those times of waiting and trusting on Him to guide us through safely to the promised land!  Looking ahead is good when we know the One who is guiding our journey and making us whole in the process.  Often He takes away the rough places within our hearts and makes them smooth and calm.  I don't know what is going on in your life today but I can pray if you read this,  that you will allow God to guide you to a place that He has already entered.  His Entry Foyer is open and He is inviting you to come in and share and fellowship with Him.  In Luke 1:46-47 Mary said,  " My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior."  Amen to her words!!!  Have a blessed day and ENTER IN!!!
