Already There

     I found this poem on a friend's facebook page and thought it was good enough to share.
     Isn't it comforting to know that God has already seen and planned for our future?  We can look back on our past and verify this with all the accomodations that were made on our behalf.  I had been on an old type of ventilator at night for 13 years when it stopped meeting my needs.  I ended up in ICU for a week.  My doctor offered a new, different type of machine but wasn't sure if it would be sufficient.  God met my needs with this at just the right time.  Other doctors in the past had told me this type of machine wasn't right for me but I think it just wasn't the right timing in God's plan for me.  I need not worry because it's out of my control but under His.
     When you're driving to Florida from Arkansas, do you worry about Alabama as you leave your driveway?  No, you have a lot of ground to cover first.  That's how believers should consider our journey of life. Know your destination but trust that God and His guidance will get you there.  ''Some thru the waters, some thru the flood. Some thru the fire, but all thru the blood.''
