My quiet time was so refreshing this morning. The past couple of weeks I have had this constant “I don’t know what I’m going to do or what path I’m suppose to go down” type of thought (most with school/work related things. Yes I still want to teach, the question is which program to choose to get there). I have several paths I can go down and each one leads to the same outcome but a different way of getting there. Do you ever feel like you are standing on one foot and the other one has no idea on which direction to take the first step in? Yea, well I feel like I have been standing on one foot in certain areas for a long time. Well this morning while writing in my journal, I began to write down what I was concerned about. You wanna know what I felt like God was saying back? “Well this is the first time you have brought the issue’s to me and trusted me to lead you down the right path. Remember, my plans are for you to prosper not to harm”. Dang. So true!!! I have trusted in myself with the decisions when I should have brought my concerns a long time ago to the One who already knows the outcome! oops. Praise God that He is patient and loving because sometimes I really need that.
So, my challenge for you (and myself) is to make sure you are laying all your decisions, thoughts, feelings, worries, stress, everything at His feet and let HIM sort through it and guide you in the right direction. It would be like playing the lottery and not taking answers from someone who already knows the winning numbers. It would be crazy!
New King James Version (NKJV)
11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
