My family is in the middle of a huge transition, and I am DEFINITELY questioning right now! Overall I feel excited about new opportunities, but I want to make the right decision according to God's will for me and our family...and I don't feel like I am hearing Him clearly! BUT I am trying to enjoy all of the moments and waiting for His timing. Your post is perfectly timed! Thank you!
I used to over think my choices and fret about the future - and I still do sometimes. My pastor once told me to pray, make plans, pray some more and make more plans. He says God will direct your path but you can't sit around and just wait - you have to be active. So, that's what I've started doing. I'll pray and say God, these are the choices, point me in the right direction. Then when I do make the choice I pray again asking him to either keep the opportunity open or slam that door in my face. It's not easy by any means, but it sure has helped me feel more secure about certain decisions I've made.
Wouldn't it be so easy if there was some sort of sign? We could just pass by it and it said "Go here. God" in neon lights. Listening to God and following his will is one of the hardest things to do. The more we pray, read His word, and fellowship with others the easier it is. But it's never as easy as a neon sign.
Agreed. I used to always say that I wanted a burning bush...but the burning bush never made Moses's life easier either. :)
