How often we agonize over the question of what God is calling us to do? Conversations are peppered with words like “called” and “led”. More than once I’ve joked that I needed Him to show me a great big sign with flashing lights and a red arrow pointing “this” way.
Truth is I’m not really joking about the sign. That uncertainty of not knowing God’s will is very real and very frustrating. We’ve probably all experienced this …. Praying to be used. Praying for clarity and discernment. Praying for a soft, obedient heart. Maybe like me you’ve seen glimpses of God just around the corner, just ahead of us and just out of reach.
Yesterday was different.
The best way I can describe the feeling is ….. burdened, compelled, convinced. In my heart there was no question or doubt of what I was being asked / told / led to do. I was in tears. It was of moment of emotional heart response with a clear picture of what and how.
I have no explanation other than I was completely in His grip.
For ONCE I can say with certainty that I was called, that He led me, that I heard Him, that I obeyed. What a beautiful and humbling place to be. In the hand of the Father, led by the Spirit, loving like Jesus.
That was awesome, God! Can we do it again?
