Nothing Means Nothing
This last week I found out from my case manager that I can not put in for community corrections for another two years. It was like I got kicked in the stomach. Then I had to regroup and I realized that God is still God, and I am not. (I think there is a song out there that says that.)
I do not know what God has planned for my near future. Eternally I know where I am going. In the here and now I see things very dimly. I think it is because my wants and desires cloud my vision and clog my ears to God's plans and purposes. Even the ones that sound like they are part of God's kingdom.
So, where am I at now? I have to rest in the fact that God's plans are so much better than the ones I come up with. I am also comforted by the fact that when I put my best foot forward with parole it resulted in a three year set back. It was then that God moved and took all of my classification restrictions off and I was allowed to progress to this facility.
So, what has God got in store for my immediate future? I have no clue. I know that it is for good and that nothing will separate me from God's love. (Roman 8:39) I am just going to continue doing what God has given me to do right now and look for Him to show off. He loves doing that.
I just have to constantly remind myself that everything I see and experience God has created. When the Bible says that nothing in all of creation will separate us from God's love that it really means nothing.
