hmmmm...

So, reading back at my last blogging post, I realize that I may have been a bit delirious from our road trip. My arms were still tingly from driving and apparently my brain was not functioning so well. Ah, well our road trip was delightful. Just like my friend Kristi's blog, www.delightfuldelirium.blogspot.com.

About the things that you should do. But don't. We were conversing about this the other day and I got to thinking. How do we know what we are supposed to do (what God is telling us to do) and those things that just pop into our head. What if they are one and the same? And what if we miss out on those things that God wants us to do? (Can we miss out on them?) - quoteth Kristi as she reads my blog aloud in monotone boring voice...

I read somewhere that if we are trying to do God's will but we don't know what he wants us to do that we should do what we want and trust God that it will all be good. Is this how it works, I wonder?

First of all... guess which Raven Friend of yours I am? :-) (I'll give you a hint... I haven't graduated from BC yet... and I'm in your sisters class!) That's right I now have a blog too... mine is www.thoughtsofaraven@blogspot.com

Anyways... in answer to the above mentioned question... I think at times we do need to just do what we want if we don't have the answers from God and then trust that 1) In time the answers will come, 2) That God will grant the Holy Spirit guide the actions of our Will to fit His plan for our lives!!!! I do believe we need to carefully seek His Will before we do our Will though!!!

Well, hope all is well with you! Check out my blog sometime... it's very random! Love Ya!

guess whose older sister of your mother this is???????????? Just wanted you to know I am reading your random thoughts. Whenever I cannot figure out something, even if praying on it for a while, I just think, 'Thy will be done.' Sometimes God tells us his plan but we are not really listening because we want something our own way. Then I ask for the faith and courage to deal with whatever he sends my way, knowing that he knows what he is doing.
