So when I set in to motion one of the biggest changes of my life yesterday it was truly a God-thing. Although I’ll have to wait a couple weeks to share the details, know that I would’ve never imagined myself at this crossroad a year ago—but God created the “perfect storm” in my life to bring about this change.
I wrestled in prayer for months over this “new thing” as I never want to be led by my desires—only God’s. Period. So how can one tell the difference? I can’t say for sure, but I believe it comes down to being at peace with not having to make it happen. God begins stirring the heart, circumstances seemingly fall into place without effort, peace floods, and the desires of one’s heart seem to forget the definition of “creature of habit” (a God-thing in and of itself!)
So, while I’m not a fan of change, I am a huge fan of following where my heavenly Father’s footsteps lead. One step at a time.
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?”
“In my experience, the will of God is difficult to discern because it often involves making a decision that seems irresponsible… But pursuing a God-ordained passion, no matter how crazy it seems, is the most responsible thing you can do.” -Mark Batterson
