    This is so true, Janet. Getting ahead of the vision that God has for us. Pushing on in our own strength and ideas – instead of really listening to Him.
    Oswald Chambers said the same thing today. We don’t wait, do we?
    We are impatient.
    Thanks for this post.
    Jan

      You know what the scary thing is, Jan? I read that daily entry from My Utmost for His Highest, and I focused on the vision part and missed the getting ahead on our own. Thanks for sending me back to read it again! Guess I got sidetracked because I don’t really have a sense of vision. But God does, and He’s working. Thanks for the nudge!

    Janet, I just love the Larry Norman piece you included. I think we may have lost something in the high tech age. I’d gladly sit through a Sunday School lesson like that one. (grin)

      I don’t ever remember flannel-graph stories being this much fun, Stephanie, but they were indeed good times. I remember paying attention and being good… because there was always the hope that if a kid was well-enough behaved, s/he might be allowed to move a sheep or something as the story unfolded.

    Oh, my! I just read this…and boy, do I see myself…and not in a good light either. I love to do many different things at the same time. And while that’s not necessarily a bad thing, I must, must, must remember to seek God first at all times, in all situations. I should never rely on my own “wisdom” or ability to provide. Thank you for this reminder, my friend.
