The Shifting Sand
There is a nomadic tribe called the Woodabe,who travel the Sahara desert moving their large herds of cattle constantly to keep them fed and watered. The interesting point here aside from these ancient Ethiopian peoples,having lived this nomadic life for over 5000 years is that they navigate through a desert which is in constant motion,using no visible landmarks. Or are there? It is said that the elder women of the tribe know the landmark dunes to follow to get the tribes people, their camels and herds to certain watering holes/oasis' in this vast,ever changing desert. In life the landmarks may not be visible. You may be in an ever changing environment. That's what Gods Angels do. They guide you through the "desert". Angels come in many forms. What is needed firstly,is to believe and trust in God. Secondly just sit still and listen, you may hear a whisper, you may see a sign. But always keep your mind open for that guidance. Pray this prayer:Psalms 139:1-4 Lord you know me. You know my downside, you know my upside. You understand when I go astray. Please provide a compass for my path. And when I am still acquaint me with your ways. This I ask in Jesus name Amen.
