pray for God to make a decision so clear for you that there's no way you'd miss His sign?
And, then, does He ever produce a sign that's... ummm... very much not like you expected?
Do you think that God just chuckles in Joy? Watching us learn, trust...
scratch our heads??!!
I was discussing this very topic with my friend Jenna today. We want the simple way, the obvious way, the clear way.
But, sweet friends, God wants for us whichever way will produce fruit in our lives. He wants the way that will cause us to look to him, the author and finisher of our faith.
He looks at our life so differently than we do. For I am consumed with thoughts of income, schooling, career paths, action. Action, Lord! C'mon!!!
But he cares for even the sparrow. Does the sparrow have to think about things such as these?
There are many references in the Bible to sparrows, how dispensible they are in man's eye, but how much God cares for them and clothes them and feeds them. How much more so will He care for us whom He loves, and send us on the path He wants for us.
So, scratching our heads, we take a step of faith. Again.
Any of y'all been there?
