I tried to download this as a pdf file because I'm going into the hills tonight and won't have Internet access with my CricKet card up there. I had plans to read the entire book there, but since this seems unlikely now, so I just read enough to know what this book is about.
I have thought many times about illness and its relationship to evil and prayed about it less than I probably should have. Perhaps I have been one who would rather walk ten hours than to kneel humbly. (I read that in the book but don't know where to reference it.) Anyway, the Lord is teaching me to allow Him to LEAD. We are His sheep, not to act and expect Him to bless our actions. So in preparation for today, I ask, have I prayed enough? Is He LEADING me? Am I following HIM or am I expecting Him to follow me with blessings? (Surely goodness and mercy shall follow you all the days of your life and you will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. (paraphrased from Ps. 23) Am I hearing Him correctly? Is there still time to change the course of my day (through my choices)?
One thing I know is that today is a significant day for me, but now I think every day is for all of us, but...I'll speak for me, I don't always recognize the significance in each "normal" day. Today I think I'm getting a glimpse of God's significant, yet undiscernable presense in an ordinary day.
This is a good book; I look forward to reading the whole thing.
