Waiting on Him....
I have been getting that "antsy" feeling, that feeling like I need to do something, go somewhere, start something!! I get that feeling once and again, and it drive me nuts!! It makes me want to make a decision of my own volition, without listening and waiting on Him. My husband and I are trying to make decisions about our future, big decisions! We always come back to listening to God and waiting on Him. We listen, and nothing. We listen and pray, and nothing. Are we missing something? Did we miss God's voice, like a voicemail lost out there somewhere. Did He speak so softly, I missed it? How do I know when it is Him speaking and not just my desires?
"Out of the depths I cry to you, Lord; Lord, hear my voice. Let your ears be
attentive to my cry for mercy" Psalm 130:1-2
"Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, "This is the way: walk in it." Isaiah 30:21
I have been craving to hear Him, to know His plan for me and my family. It is almost an anxious feeling, of wanting to know a secret that shouldn't be told. I want to do so much, I want to try new things, and see new places. But, I will wait for the Lord to call me. He knows the plans he has for me.
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
It is tough to wait. Not very fun either. I will keep talking to Him and praying for his direction and a path to be revealed. I will keep delving into The Word for a glimpse of insight. Lastly, I will listen. As easy as it may sound and is hard as it is to do, I will listen!! Listen not to my desires but for the faithful words of my Heavenly Father leading me to the places I need to go.
