The WAY I Like it! By Renee Burt



Isaiah 55:8-9 NLT ~ “My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.

It's funny the things you remember from your childhood. I was raised in a single parent home, so money was pretty tight most times. Now, although there was a whole lot of love in our home, mom didn't have the finances to spend on things like the latest games...which at that time was Mouse Trap! I loved that game. So I prayed and asked God to somehow get me that game. Well, a month went by, then two, then three... And then my best friend got the game for her birthday. I couldn't believe she had got the game, when I knew she hadn't even asked God for it! And I never considered that God HAD answered my prayer, but He had...because I don't think a day went by when this friend didn't invite me over to play that game with her...but it hadn't cost my mom anything. I've let that remind me over the years that I have to be careful to not decide how I think God should answer my prayer. It might not be "my way"...but I'm so glad because as today's verses say, His ways are "far beyond anything you could imagine." And that's the WAY I like it!

Isaiah 55:8-9 NLT ~ “My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.
