Our steps are ordered by the Lord…

I have been very reflective the last few days, just been thinking about the people God has brought into my life over the years, and the ones who He has brought in which have impacted my destiny, and drawn me into His perfect will & plan for my life.  

About 14 years ago, I met a newly married couple at Church in Melbourne.  They had just moved (back) to Melbourne and were looking for a church to call home.  Something drew me to them and we became very close.  Little did I know at the time that our friendship would eventually lead to me meeting my wife, my life partner.  Coming upto 10 years of marriage, I guess that’s why I’ve been thinking a lot about it…

Most times we will never know why we are compelled to reach out to someone, or where it would lead us.  I hear so many people searching for their Mr or Ms “right” all over the place.  But when we live a life led by the Holy Spirit, HE directs our every step and HE knows the true Mr or Ms “Right” for us!!
 Delight yourself also in the LORD,

         And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
Psalm 37:4

 

Also on my mind is friends God brings along us to support us along our journey.  I’m thankful for each one of them.  Tonight at G20 (life group) we had to spontaneously share a word of encouragement for someone in the room.  It was really great to hear those words spoken about each one.  We are so blessed to have the fellowship & love of another human life, made in the image of God, to bless, encourage and “do life with”.  We miss the point by a mile or two sometimes, in searching for some religious ideal and finding people to “reach” when God has placed people right in front and around us, to love & care for. 

That’s it for today.. just sharing what’s on my heart the last few days.  I know it’ll help someone 🙂
