Do you ever find yourself in that situation, where you don’t know what to do? I’m sure you have.
Maybe you’re at a cross-roads where you have to make a choice, or you’re trucking along in the direction God called you and come up on a dead end…
The next step we should take is not always pointed out to us with a big, neon sign. That would make life too easy, right? But most of the time, life is not easy.
I used to wonder why life wasn’t easier, especially when our God is a loving God. But over time I have come to realize two very wonderful things happen when we go through the “non-easy” times: It creates an opportunity for us to grow closer to God. And it creates an opportunity for us to grow as a person, more into who we were intended to be.
I also learned something else.
Right now, I don’t know what to do. I don’t have a big, neon sign pointing at which choice I should make. But I can’t just not make a choice. I can’t just wait. I have to make a choice. So. I made the most logical choice, set things into motion, and am waiting to see if God closes the door, or opens it wider.
Sometimes I think God waits to let us know the answer, until after we step out in faith.
The thing I like about that idea, is God is helping me grow my faith in him. I can’t wait to find out the next step.
Have you stepped out in faith?
