Discerning God's Will
Everyone has experienced change. It does not come easy for any of us. For some, chance comes quickly in an instant. We don't know what hit us. When you are uprooted unexpectedly, that is a shock certainly that you are not prepared for. Or, you can pray for years for God to take control of a situation and change it for you. It is easier for someone else to do it for you. Maybe it takes more courage than you have, and its just too hard. Sometimes, it happens the way it did for Saul Paul. Can't get any clearer than that. Most of us receive confirmations which we choose to ignore, because denial is easier. Even if it's Gods will, change can be painful and who wants that? Sometimes it means avoiding a change because you don't want to hurt someone else, and so you would rather take the pain yourself. But should you choose to ignore it? That is the easiest way out rather than to deal with a situation that will never resolve itself. You think, this cannot be happening to me, either way, it comes to us as a shock, even if we knew it right along, deep down. We cry out for God's mercy and, it's more of the same. Maybe it is His will after all. Rather not think about it. But think about it is all you can do. Change is a part of life, not always easy, but sometimes necessary. The question is How do we discern God's will? Somehow, I know we do get the message. What do we choose to do with the revelation is another matter. One thing I've learned in life is, that the God I serve wants me to be happy and you too! Lord have Mercy on us all! Which way do we go, show us Lord, Your will.

Many will wonder how I came up with this very unusual title. Who in their right mind would want to blog on this topic. A mom, grandmother, or anyone who cares for small children, worldwide. What if I told you to kiss the boo-boo is the "cure all" for all ages? That has been my philosophy for and the basis for this blog. What am I, I am a boo-boo kisser. I make it all better. I am sharing my thoughts and views, not intended to offend any reader, but to express the lessons life has taught me. These are solely my experiences and reflect my feelings! Looking for others to share as well...
