How Much Providence is There in Your Life?

GODS GUIDEBOOK

There is no such thing as chance. Jehovah directs our steps when we allow Him to.

 

In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps Proverbs 16:9 New International Version

 

For me it was small things that stood out I was living in a dead end world and then read a little ad in the local newspaper about going to a school in Toronto to study electronics. I went but soon was studying natural medicine which I have used to help others for over thirty years as well as doing volunteer work in a hospital which was preparing me to care for others.

 

At another time after that there was  a little ad to go tree planting and as there was no other work available I took the job. During the thirteen years of the career I planted over a million trees all across Canada  but the thing Jehovah was preparing me for was when I was teaching rookies that was preparing me where He would send me next. As well many of the workers had some deep seated problems so I learned to counsel them.

 

When this career was petering out I studied teaching English. Once the course was completed my resume was posted on line. From hundreds of contract offers only one stood out which was teaching in China. During my ten years there I helped guide countless students to Christ.

 

As you can see each one was preparing me for a larger plan in succession. It took the course of about thirty years so do not expect it to happen overnight.

 

“There are no accidents in the life of the Christian.” Rowland Bingham

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rohi (God is our Sheppard) for so patiently guiding me to places You intended for me You be to do the work You intended for me to do. I praise You in the name of He who followed His destiny all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.

  1. I know what you mean. My whole life looking back all I can see is the mighty hand, “providence”, of God.
