In the beginning…..
God created ….
When God launches a vision in your life, he starts in the beginning.
He begins where you are.
With what you have.
He waits for your Faith – faith is an action word – Will you go?
Will you refuse? Will you mumble along the way? How about all the “if’s”?
He will guide as we follow. Much like a marathon, there must be preparation steps.
Pray. Seek Him and his answer. Get confirmation – He is good, and loves that you ask him to authenticate that the way is truly from Him, because he is after all, a very thorough, God of order. He will show up with the ground work, the people, money and all necessary things you need to just do “it”!
What prevents you from trusting God to take that dream, that hope and move mountains to conquer it?
Matthew 15:27 NIV Then Jesus said to her, “Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted.”
I know for my own life, back in my 20’s he started preparing me to become an entrepreneur. It was an exciting thought. But made zero sense, since everyone I know has a traditional “job”. I had a traditional “job”. But a time came where God opened up a few doors for me to work in ministrt — and I found my niche. I was willing to “go” and “do”. It was not always easy, but amazingly, He paved the way for peace, comfort, and wisdom during that time.
He lay on my heart – heavy on my heart – to help encourage women. It made no sense, but I prayed. A door was opened to work in that ministry with women until that opportunity closed for business. The past few years since then, I have not found gainful employment, have had a PILE of very difficult situations to deal with – all after I have been serving Him and thinking I was on the “right path”, did I miss the mark along the way? — no — I believe God has been preparing me – in and through the past few years, with all the pain and hurts that came along, it has been a humbling, strengthening, learning time for this next stage. When we started this book a few weeks ago, God gave me a vision of what I believe will be the next phase of my life. It’s h.u.g.eeeeee!!!!!!! I mean BIG. Massive. Over my head kind of big. I am not even sure where to begin kind of big.
So, I have been praying. The Holy Spirit has been giving me ideas, and I have to turn it back to God and pray. All of those WHO WHAT WHERE WHEN WHY — and the ever important question – HOW???!!! I am taking it one moment at a time, and I am walking it out in Faith – and expectation for God to show up and reveal HIMSELF throughout the process.
1 Corinthians 13:2 I may have the gift of prophecy. I may understand all the secret things of God and have all knowledge, and I may have faith so great I can move mountains. But even with all these things, if I do not have love, then I am nothing.
Where He leads, I will follow! And what an exciting ride it will be…
Ready …. Set… Go….!!!
Let’s pray: Lord we come to you, knowing you have SO much life for us to live. We have gifts and ideas that need to be shared with others. Prepare us Lord to open our lives up to ALL you have destined for us to do. We thank you that you won’t overwhelm us, but guide us step by step along this path to greatness. Let us be more like you – full of mercy and love so our light shines brightly and to be an encouragement to others. Thank you Jesus for being the Savior of the World.
One response to “Where you go, I will follow”
Donna love your post and love that ready, set, go. I too had a heart and burden for women. I retired last year and here I am an OBS leader. Hang in there because He will lead as you follow. Blessings to you and thanks so much for posting. Debbie W. (OBS)
