Enjoy the Ride!


I’m well into my first week going full-time.  Last Monday (first official day), my manager gave me some very cute gifts—and a card with this at the end:  “Enjoy the ride—it will be one!”

She wasn’t kidding.

Since I started temping in January, I don’t recall a week with this much…  let’s call it… variety. 

During lunch today, I was talking to God about it.  I was reminded that the Good Shepherd does not place His sheep in pastures where they cannot thrive.  It stands to reason that, if this little lamb encounters a meandering ditch (daily tasks), a barrier fence (challenging tasks), or even a ferocious wolf (personalities), all I have to do is “bleat”:  He is plenteous in mercy unto all who call on Him.

I am also thankful for the well-known promise:  He who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it.  Years ago, the Maker of all Things re-made me — — into a new creation, including me in a greater Plan that He is carrying out.  He gave me a job; I work for Him.  He didn’t re-make me and forsake me.

I have found that for every ditch, fence, or wolf I’ve encountered, there has been my faithful Father, taking care of me.  When I cry (Baa-Baa!), He hears; He cares; He answers.

This new job is a good one.  God gave me more than I prayed for.  (I mean that in a good way!)   So, Dear Reader, let’s remember the words of our Savior and Friend:  Be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

It’s a good field with lots of grass. 
God is tending; I just need to ask.
Every day, I get to decide
To shine His light… and enjoy the ride!

  1. You are so gracious.
    We all tend to forget who brought us to the dance and how are we to get home.
    Thanks for the reminder.

    And finally my brethrenI I command you: yet not I for it is the Lord’s command; that ye strive to take ever situation and turn it into a blessing from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the annointed One. Strive to be more like him daily.
    Phoebe 17:7-8
