DEO VOLENTE!


DEO VOLENTE!! Translated this phrase means, GOD WILLING! This is my new motto for 2009 and I plan not to make any PLANS on my own but to WALK BY FAITH and ask HIM to direct my paths! What a comfort to know that HE HAS A PLAN and we are not to WORRY or FRET because HIS plan is PERFECT for us.

This morning in my daily devotional I read this which was written over 100 years ago: "I will ENJOY all things in GOD and God in ALL things and NOTHING in itself. So shall my JOYS neither CHANGE or PERISH. For, however the THINGS in themselves alter or FADE, yet He, in whom they are MINE, is ever like HIMSELF; CONSTANT AND EVERLASTING!" Bishop Hall. How AWESOME is that!

DEO VOLENTE!! Forever and ever, AMEN!! BLESSINGS to you all in 2009!
