Higher Than Our Ways - 05

During my work day I have much to think on. Currently I am in retail management, so selling product and customer service occupies most of my mind, while personnel issues, customer issues and paperwork fill most of the remainder. While I dearly love my wife and children, I rarely am able to think long about them during the work day. Even my lunchtimes are usually interrupted by the necessities of the day.

When the work day ends, and I’m driving home, I sometimes feel a bit guilty that I haven’t thought much about my family during the day. I’m aware of the realities of work, but I still wonder if I’m guilty of mentally neglecting my commitment to my family.

In contrast to my limitations, we find God as described by David in Psalm 40:5-

“Many, O LORD my God, are the wonders which You have done, and Your thoughts toward us…”

Wow. Not only has God performed many wonders, but He still has time to think about us. That truth can easily be applied personally. No matter what else God has to think about during His ‘day’, he still has time to think about me. And I can always depend on God to think on my family when I cannot. My limitations allow God to act, and serve to illustrate how Gods ways are truly higher than our ways.

Good afternoon Porshadoxus.

It is when we come to the end of ourselves that Christ begins His greatest work in us. He loces us He cares.

Very good. I like your personal witness.

God bless you.
