From, “The Spiritual Life Journal. (Journey).” (A personal journal entry- April 7, 2014. By Timothy Baugh. For March 20, 2019.

Just like when the electric power goes off; so when God’s power is absent from our lives we may struggle to find the energy to combat or overcome our weaknesses. Operating in our own strength is hard until the Light comes to enlighten our way again. It has really never left us. It is just temporarily off. Patience in watching and waiting- ‘actively looking’ for the return; brings with its return many blessings.   When we feel like Life becomes predictable and routine, then we should look for how God can make even the most ordinary day sometimes more worthwhile and special. We learn by our mistakes. And like them or not, they tell us something all the same. I read today about the Prophet Balaam. (See Numbers, Chapter 22.) Even when our way is in direct opposition to the LORD; He can still achieve His Will and Purpose through us. We may resist His guidance and even fight His intention; but He will soon get our attention one way or another! May we surrender ‘our idea’ of how it should be done and seek God’s Will, not ours, from the start of each new day.   “But he knows the way that I take: when he has tried me, I shall come forth as gold.” Job 23:10.
