It’s been a while since I’ve posted, I just graduated from college and the last semester was intense. I do plan on writing about lessons I learned in college but that’s not what this post is about.
God has been speaking to me a lot lately and that’s what I want to share. I am always hesitant to publishing these sorts of posts because I don’t want people to think I am forcing Jesus on them or being a Bible-thumper. But it would be a shame for me to keep quiet because there may be one person who needs to hear what I am about to share and that one person is far more important than what others may think.
As some of you may know I am going to Cambodia in a few weeks. I have been praying a lot and seeking God for wisdom. I am the type of person who wants to know what the ending result will be when I begin something. But if I know what the ending result will be will I even take the first step? Probably not, because I’m most likely not ready to know what that ending result is.
That is where faith comes in, trusting God step by step. He’s been telling me that a lot lately, to trust Him step by step. I cannot get direction for step number two if I don’t take the first step.
In the past month Hebrews 11 has been popping up a lot. We see the faith Abraham had, going to a land he didn’t know, but knowing it's where God sent him.
Stories like this always challenge me to truly have faith. If God told you to go to an unknown land today, would you have the faith to go?
But how can I have that faith that Abraham had? It’s simple, spend time with God and learn more about Him.
That’s not all God has been showing me.
As embarrassing as this is to admit, I am obsessed with weddings and the thought of marriage. This often leads me to pleading with God to send me someone now!
But what God has been showing me lately is to use my season of singleness to live for Him. In 1 Corinthians 7 we see the difference of married and unmarried. Although marriage is from God, it’s totally different than being single.
When we become married we have to consider how our actions will affect our spouse. Being single I am able to take trips such as this one to Cambodia without having to consider another person.
We shouldn’t be so caught up in looking for “the one” but rather seeking God and trusting His timing! Again, this goes back to having faith and trusting Him step by step. We are to spend our time of singleness focusing on God and living to please Him.
As always I am reminded of Matthew 6:33 “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”
Please feel free to reach out with any questions you may have and share what the Lord has been showing you!
