5169044 s 350x268 Day 23   Truth vs LiesToday has been one of those days that are full of fabulousness as well as drudgery. Ever get those?

Some of the things that happen are simply amazing and then some of the things feel like you’re wading through syrup.

I had a wonderful QT with the LORD this morning where He downloaded an outline of an idea that is so exciting. I then met an old friend for coffee and left, buzzing. On my walk home I listened to an amazing teaching that had me all fired up. What a morning!

By the time I got home, I was tired (I haven’t been sleeping so well lately), so I decided to have a ‘recharge nap’ but sleep evaded me and I lay awake staring at the ceiling before finally deciding to just get up and do something. Now, all the work I’m trying to do just feels like I’m trudging through thick mud.

When things like this happen, I ask the Holy Spirit to show me what’s really going on.

This is what He led me to:

Ephesians 2:10(AMP)

For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].

And this is what I wrote:

I see God actually looking at a plan and saying,” I will make one human being and she will be called Lisa and she will do this during her lifetime. I will make one called Frans and he will do this during his lifetime. Frans and Lisa will meet when they are 21 and 24 and this is what will have happened in each of their lives up until the time they meet and this is what will happen in each of their lives after they meet and this is how, where, when they will meet. He did this because He is kind and so that the world would see His goodness in, and through, us. All part of His wonderful plans. WOW!

It is quite astounding how reading the Truth of what God has to say, can shed so much light on a situation that it gets resolved quickly and completely. The Truth is that my ‘today’ was already written and planned out before I was even a twinkle in my dad’s eye (J). Now, my choice is to see the kindness and goodness of God which will automatically put a huge grin on my face and I will be glad, or to continue to see things as a struggle and stay sad and mad.

Oh my word! I choose to be glad LORD. Truth beats lies every time. Thank You!
