Tonight I am like clay in the hands of the Potter. I am praying He will mold me and make me into who He desires me to be. I am praying my heart, too, will be like clay in His hands–soft and so easily molded.
We are praying through a decision that is huge for our family. One we never anticipated coming our way. One which will affect our lives, and our family. I am so fired up today–the circumstances of the last few days have had me on my knees–seeking His face. I will share more in the next few days. I am sure of one thing–I can never be content to take the easy road in this life, the road where challenges seem fewer, and there may be less bumps and obstacles to overcome. No, not me. I am [slowly] learning that sometimes God wants me to simply step out of the boat (my place of comfort)–there will be no warm fuzzy feelings that tell me that it is the right time. There will be no lightning bolts from heaven telling me it is time to move. Sometimes my only guide is His precious Word. How much direction we find right there.
A few months back the Father led me to a quote from John Wesley. I kept it buried in my Bible, feeling like I would know the season in my life when it would minister to me.
John Wesley wrote, “Among many difficulties in our early ministry, my brother Charles often said, “If the Lord would give me wings, I’d fly. I used to answer, “If God bids me fly, I will trust Him for the wings.”
Could it be time for God to bid us fly? If it is–I’m in. There is nothing sweeter on this earth than being obedient to the Father, no matter where that leads us, or what He has us do. Obedience is everything to me.
