(Lord, thank You for the Grace to Praise You yesterday when it looked so bleak for finding a place to stay on Daytona Beach. I remembered what You ‘ve said about times of trial are allowed to build our TRUST in You and that we should surrender our Will and also not listen to what we hear or see because You have a PERFECT PLAN. Thank You, Holy Spirit, for helping me remember this time.)
(I wanted so badly to stay there so we could ride our bikes on the beach. Everyone said there were no rooms left on Daytona Beach because of the Daytona 500 race, but finally I let go of my disappointment and my plan…..SURRENDERED to Yours and began THANKING and PRAISING You for wherever you wanted us to stay (STP) because we KNEW that Your Plan is always PERFECT…..never fails!)
(So, we decided to make our way north out of Daytona Beach to find a place to stay, but there was a place that I had asked my husband to help me remember to check out that we had passed at one point in our search. However, neither of us could rememeber the name, so as we were leaving, I thought I ‘d just look for it. We had seen so many names, but this building had an original shape, so I began looking to see if I could recognize it. Sure enough…..there it is. I said, “Should we just check this last one out? ” He said, “Yes, OK.”)
(Well, we got the last room available and only because someone had called just before who had to cancel. The Lord had given us our desire, but He most of all, gave us an opportunity to lay down our Will at His Feet and surrender in thanks and praise to His Perfect Will. We were given a chance to grow closer to Him by trusting Him besides getting the desire of our hearts.)
(Lord, You did it again by Blessing us with a marvelous place on the beach with a view of the sunrise AND sunset AND the lights of the city at night. The rooms are angled on the side of the building with each balcony completely open and protruding out from the next, so no ones view is blocked…..GREAT! We love it more than any we ‘ve had before. The view also includes, not only straight out to the ocean, but a mile down the shoreline…..very unique to us and we love it. Thank You so much for sharing Your faithfulness AGAIN!) Children, Children, you can see how well I take care of fulfilling your desires. Why? Because you GAVE UP your desires and finally laid them at My Feet, TRUSTING Me to work My Perfect Will in your situation. You didn ‘t get excited or irritable because you really did TRUST ME. Try to live this way on and on daily seeing in your spirit-man that I am lovingly perfectly in control. You need to RELAX and JUST WORSHIP your Father PEACEFULLY and CONFIDENTLY. Remember this!
Try to live this way…seeing in your spirit-man that I am lovingly perfectly in control.
