Sequence of Events

Today, I am thankful for the sequence of events in my life.

Over time, I can see how the Lord's hand has been at work in the past to effect the future.

For example, by going off to college, God allowed me to meet my future Husband, and now we are married with 3 lovely kids. (I have no doubt that there were many other numerous ways that God would have brought Husband and I together. However, this is the way it occurred.)

On a more minor note. . .remember that tree branch I told you all about, that fell the other day? Well, my Husband had to chop that branch into more manageable pieces. That fallen branch has now provided our family with more firewood to help keep us warm this winter.

Also, the fallen branch gave Husband and I some time alone. On Sunday afternoon, I went out to assist him with the branch. He and the chain saw were busy with the larger, main branch that fell. I gathered the smaller twigs and branches into piles for him. This time spent gave us the chance to discuss some recent decisions we made. During this discussion, the Lord just unified our hearts all the more about the situation.

It was such a blessing, that little 1/2 hour of time. . . brought about because the wind knocked down part of our tree!

God is good.

  1. Stacie,

    The sequence of events that God arranges in our lives is truly a mystery to me. Yes, sometimes they bring blessings, but other times, they bring "painful" lessons that must be learned.

  2. Lady Rose,
    You're right--sometimes blessings, and sometimes pain. I don't always understand myself, especially when I'm going through life's storms. But even in the midst of the pain, God's hand is there. He is in control. He never leaves us alone.

    "The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
    -Deut. 31:8

    God bless you!!

  5. Hi Lisa,
    God is so AWESOME! I am thankful for His presence in my life.

  6. The Unsell Family,
    You are most welcome! If we take a moment to reflect, we can begin to understand (even if it's just a little bit) how God uses one thing for another purpose.

    God bless you!

  7. It's amazing how things fall into place. Sometimes the little things that seem so insignificant can be life changing.
