Happily ever after...

My sheep hear my voice.

This picture describes something I feel the Lord has been showing me lately.
It's sad but soooo true! The scripture comes to mind, "In quietness and confidence shall be your strength. You shall hear a word in your ear saying which way to go, walk in it." (paraphrased)

The amazing thing about God is that he desires to give us the desires of our heart and the devil would want us to think, "Oh, he's so hard on us!" So we want instant relief by drowning out life (and Him in the process) by giving into our pleasures (instant relief) instead of letting him perfect his patience in us. Daniel, Joseph, and King David, Moses, Abraham and so many more that went before us all let patience perfect her perfect work in their lives! Now generations can hear those stories and have hope and give God the glory but if they tried to give themselves instant satisfaction then those stories would never be birthed and God wouldn't get the glory and people wouldn't have the hope! Not to mention, they also wouldn't have developed the sweet love trust relationship with their Heavenly Father as they did! God is GOOD in ALL His ways!!!!

For the Joy that was set before him he endured the cross!
