|How Great Thou Art indeed!
Your Praising God has so much "meat" to it and stirs things in me. What I wanted to share is that, as a 74 year old believer, it took much way to long to really understand my part in this world. Slowly, it has come to me that this is God's creation, world and people and we (all of us no matter our lot in life) are all here for His pleasure. With that, I truly believe His plan is for us to learn on this earth what will become so clear in the everlasting life after. He, at his pleasure, uses us and wants us and will have us to interact for the good of humanity. Example:
some of us have been given a different plan, say plan A; some plan B; some plan C. I mean that plan A may have been born with a silver spoon in their mouth; plan B, average family as far as financial stability but maybe a daughter or son with challenges; plan C - totally challenged! But, we creatures have instilled in us, a God like image (our soul deep down know Him) and along comes a gift of choice and all of us have that path to take to know our creator.
Now, as we travel the path, we are to interact/help others as we go. We don't always know what that may be, however, as we come to know him (accept His gift of salvation), we now have a map of the road to travel (the Word is our guide). We will be on a journey and our real job is doing His work, taking His direction, moving in the path that He guides us toward.
Do I know how to always do this, No! I have more times then I care to think about, especially in my early years, have gotten off on the wrong path, even trying hard to stay on the right path. But as I look at life, where circumstances take people, I truly believe, as Joseph told his brothers that you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people lives (paraphrase).
God bless you and your family,
