WHAT I LEARNED (THIS WEEK)

By: Marie Drakulic

 

I learned that things don’t

always turn out as I planned.

Because you can’t make a decision for

others,

And God’s ways are not my ways.

 

I learned my faith is the weakest in

moments of fear and anxiety.

And if I let him, Satan WILL defeat me.

But I

also learned the strength of prayer,

And the mighty power of Christ’s

name.

 

I learned I can’t save a saint.

So I better stop preaching to the

choir,

And start loving my lost neighbor.

 

I learned that people will let you

down.

But God will never fail you.

I’m not running the race for them,

But to

serve Him.

 

I learned a lot this week.

But God had a bigger lesson to teach

me . . .

He said:

“I looked for a man among them who would build up the wall

and stand before

me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not destroy

it, but I found

none.”*

“Are you standing in the gap?

 

“You cannot

quit,

Because I endured the cross.

You cannot give up,

Because I did not give

up on you.

Sometimes you may feel like you’re standing alone,

Like David

before Goliath with a sling and a stone,

But I will be with you.”

 

Again He

questioned me:

“Whom shall I send?

And who will go for us?”

After all I had

learned this week,

In a humbled voice and broken spirit,

I said:

“I’m still

here, Lord. Send me!”**

 

*Ezekiel 22:30

**Isaiah 6:8
