Life can be busy

Life can be busy; having to re-record 12 songs in a short space of time can seem a daunting task without life’s added interruptions and ailments (such as a newly acquired cold!)… The temptation is to plough on through with my list and see if there’s time at the end for God. The truth is God is not bound by time -Psalm 31:15 says “my times are in Your hands”. When we seek His kingdom first (Matthew 6:33) God miraculously orchestrates and realigns those lists. I was blessed by Isaiah 57:15 this morning; “I dwell in the high and holy place with him who has a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble and to revive the heart of the contrite ones”. Perhaps it’s time I/we stop striving and give God the steering wheel.. I’ve heard it said “faith is living life without manipulation” and “God will not own that which He has not initiated”. When we realise that God is truly sovereign, we do not need to force things or manipulate but rather rest in Him. Nothing surprises the Lord.Those interruptions may well be God’s interjections and realignments. May our prayer be ‘Lord help me seek you first today’. 🙏
