Divine Appointments

3 Mar

Surely goodness and mercy will follow me
   all the days of my life…
Psalm 23:6

Happy Anniversary to Morsels of Mercy!!  It’s so hard to believe that it’s already been an entire year since I posted my first entry.  As you can see, I’m throwing a festive celebration by changing the theme of my blog to something bright and vivacious, updating family photos and periodically switching items around.  The new look will add some pizzazz and excitement as I continue to share more of the precious mercies of God.

Since I’m on the subject of mercy, I want to throw out a couple morsels for you to chew on…

While living in Albuquerque a few years back, I used to travel often to attend conferences, meetings, and to visit family.  With every flight I took, I settled into my seat with anticipation of the Divine Appointments that God had on my schedule for that day.  Conversations would take place, names would be exchanged, and nearly without exception, another request would be added to my prayer list.  Even though the travel isn’t as far, nor the destinations as exotic, God is still sending Divine Appointments my way. 

I have had the privilege of meeting Lavonna, whose father was recently diagnosed with cancer.  I do not consider it a coincidence that I rode her morning commute to downtown York for two weeks while on my first temp assignment.  Divine Appointment.   Surgeries  …  Bill, Bruce, Michelle ~ all people associated with the County office where I was working.    All Divine Appointments.   Another co-worker who is a concerned mom with a son deployed in the Navy… Divine Appointment.    As I have left one job and am starting another temporary position, I will continue to pray for those whose paths I have crossed, and anticipate the new journey that God has in store for me around the corner. 

Prayer requests are made each time I get on the phone with my dear friends in Cincinnati  ~ more Divine Appointments.  Having our precious grandson in our home from time to time for overnight visits is a most blessed Divine Appointment.  This little guy, who is nearly 2 years old now, needs to know that his Mimi fervently prays for him and for his family.  Another vital Divine Appointment is time spent on my knees daily for our own son and his sweet girlfriend.  Some appointments are kept faithfully everyday while others are unexpected and given prompt attention.

As said so perfectly in Streams of the Desert  ~  March 2 …

“Meet Him alone.  Meet Him regularly.  Meet Him with His open Book of counsel before you; and face the regular and the irregular duties of each day with the influence of His personality definitely controlling your every act.”

 It is a privilege to open God’s appointment book each day … to thumb through the scheduled times along with the unexpected moments  ~  all that lead to Divine Appointments … and Divine Appointments lead to more morsels to share with you.  Thank you for your continued interest and support while we celebrate a new year of Morsels of Mercy together!

Until next time,
Debbie
