God's Mysterious Ways... (Originally posted 6/24/14)

Say you've been consistent with something, or against something for say, oh, ten years. Then one day you are presented with a proposal in which the afore-mentioned is involved. You agree to compromise yourself, mainly in anticipation of bettering yourself. (Don't worry, it's not illegal or anything.) There are MANY feelings involved. As with any new situation, there's fear, definitely feeling anxious. You know that it really IS a good decision, & an answer to prayers. Let's just say I can't wait for it to begin & get the jitters out. Heard a story that kind of goes like this: A man ended up deserted on an island. Every day, he prayed for God to come & take him off the island. One day, a man rowed by on a kayak. He asked the guy to go with - he said God was going to come & take him off the island. Kayak guy rowed away. Then a guy on a pontoon arrived on island, & asked guy to go with. He said God was going to come & take him off the island. Pontoon guy puttered away. Then an ocean liner sent an envoy & asked the guy to go with; he gave them same story. Next day, he's getting frustrated & tells God he's angry because He hasn't come & taken him off the island. God told him, "I sent you a kayak, a pontoon & even an ocean liner!!! You didn't take the help I sent you!!!" Have a good day & be safe...
