Listen and Follow

Have you ever just known something? Something that you feel is completely God giving direction? How do you respond? What do you do? Of course you're supposed to listen and follow. But what if you're afraid?

I'll tell you what, I am totally feeling led by God. He's giving me direction. And hope. And a future. And I want to follow. I want to go where God is leading me, and do what he wants me to do. But I know that by following, I'll have to make sacrifices in my life. Big sacrifices. Lots of sacrifices. But in the end, it'll all be worth it. Because in the end, I'll be following God's will.

“‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declared the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future’” (Jeremiah 29:11).

With feeling God's leading, I have to have faith and trust. Faith that He will be with me and never give me more than I can handle. Trust that everything will be ok. I have to trust that He won't give me more than I can chew. And I have to have faith that what He is doing, where he is sending me, will be pleasing to Him. Something that I have a strong desire to do and be, a desire that is God given.

Please pray for me during this time. Pray for God's direction in my life. Pray that it'll be a easy transition. And pray that in all that I do I will be holy and pleasing to God.

With time, I'll reveal more about what God is doing in my life. It's scary. And it's exciting. It's a lot of emotions. But in the mean time, please pray.

I like prayer warriors!

I've had that feeling a few times, when I just know that I'm supposed to do or say something. I will say a prayer for you. Whatever it is, God will make the way easy and things will fall into place.
