It’s amazing what a difference a year makes. As I flipped through my journal for this time last year, it is filled with me begging the Lord for wisdom, direction, and Kayleigh’s healing. Now, a year later, I am preparing to speak to a group of women about how good God is – even when he doesn’t answer your prayers as you had hoped He would.
I found this quote by Oswald Chambers in my journal tonight…
“If you yourself do not cut the lines that tie you to the dock, God will have to use a storm to sever them and to send you out to sea.”
Yikes! This certainly isn’t the path I would have chosen for my life. I was happily meandering along my way, enjoying life and my family – but I wasn’t doing anything to further the Gospel of Christ. I wasn’t willing to cut myself loose from the dock. God doesn’t call us to stay in our safe, insulated, comfortable worlds. He calls us to walk by faith, trust His plan, and share His goodness and love wherever we go.
I pray you will choose to cut yourself loose from the dock, and allow the Lord to take you where He is calling you to be.
4 Serve only the Lord your God and fear him alone. Obey his commands, listen to his voice, and cling to him.
I am looking forward to sharing Friday night, June 23rd. Thank you Five Points Christian Church for inviting me.
