Following His Will

I've been praying and listening to what the Lord has to say. One thing He has really impressed on my heart is that He's leading me in a new direction. I have no idea what this means, but I know that I'm going to be obedient and enjoy the ride! It may be a fun ride or it may be a difficult ride, but I will trust the Lord and go where He leads me! 

I'm praying that I can get help with this exhaustion. Right now, I'm not much use to the Lord or anyone else. I'm SO tired, I get only the basics done around the house. I don't pick up my crochet or my needlework and I am only reading right now. I know all this is part of God's plan, too, to force me to seek Him and listen to Him. There is a reason for these things and I believe that God is working through everything according to His plan.

One thing I really prayed about was whether to lead a Bible study this year. I've had a definite answer from the Lord, "no". Physically, I'm unable to do it this year and I feel that I need to be available to my family, too. This was hard for me in so many ways. I love leading Bible studies and have felt it's a calling on my life, but I also know that the Lord has told me not to do it this time. I don't want to get into it and then have to step down because I was disobedient. I have no idea what the future holds, but I know that I must heed what the Lord is saying and submit to His wisdom and will.

Has there ever been a time when the Lord was telling you that He was leading you in a new direction? Have you ever felt the calling to do something or not do something? Was this difficult for you to submit to His will?

  1. Julie, I am going through much testing right now. I have just over 2 weeks to go until my "final results" of this ablation. I will then know if I am to get any pain relief. I am trying to have total faith that it will work still. I am. But perhaps it is not God's will for me to be healed of pain. Perhaps I am to endure pain forever. Then what. The depression could swallow me whole if I let it. I just read the Psalm you post to the right of this right now. Psalm 62:5 and it couldn't be more perfect. A little more time will tell. The pain will be gone if it is God's will. Amen.


Please leave me a message! I love hearing what you have to say and look forward to your comments.
