God’s Mysterious Ways // Glimpses v. 10 — 18 Comments

  1. I’ve experienced these types of odd turn of events more than once in my walk with God. Most of the time, down the road, what He was doing and why it was best for me has been made clear. I’m so glad to be back here linking up, my friend!

  2. Barbie,
    I am sorry it has been an emotional roller coaster; so hard. Thanks for showing us through your words how you are trusting God despite his mysterious ways (Isa.55:8-9)….I’ve been praying so I will keep praying. God is good and He loves you, my friend. Keep giving him the glory by your trust…((hugs))

  3. I’m so sorry it’s been such a roller coaster of a week for you, Mary. But I’m glad God has given you to trust in Him and in the end to have actually come out better than before. I admit I have had the same question your son has. Truly, God’s ways are such a mystery. We don’t need to understand. We just need to hold His hand. It can sure be hard though, can’t it? By the way, I love the glimpses of beauty in your everyday life. Blessings and hugs to you!

  4. Good morning! Thank you for your words today. I know how God opens doors and as soon as you walk through, you are not sure if you are in the right place. But by staying the course and trusting God we will always get to where we are supposed to be. If we never walk through any doors, we would never know for sure.

  5. Hi Barbie! Oh my, I know all about those confusing, mysterious paths we walk…only to see them fall apart. It really is an exercise in trust isn’t it? Love the Merton quote.

    I’m afraid my post this week really doesn’t fulfill your theme. Maybe another week!

  6. I’m so sorry for your emotional roller coaster of a week, Barbie. 🙁 That’s a lot to process in a short amount of time. But it sounds like you have a good acceptance of it all. I like knowing that we can feel confident there is an underlying purpose, even when we don’t know what it is.

    • I’m learning more to fully accept the detours in my life. I know that I have a Good Father and He knows what’s best. Thanks for stopping by Lisa!

  7. Barbie, this mysterious thing called prayer keeps me full of questions as well. The words that help me most when I’m set to wondering came from Amy Carmichael: “In acceptance lieth peace.”
    So often God’s answers to prayer surprise me, and yet I know that He is “in the heavens, and He does whatever He pleases.” And that what He pleases is, ultimately, for my good and for His glory. It just always takes me some time to get there, too.
