Something Big

Last year, in January, I really felt like God was going to do something big in my life. I didn’t know what, but I knew it was going to be something new, something different, something I would be so excited about and would make a change in my life. My imagination began to run away from me. What if it was moving? Or what if it was starting a business, or maybe some big new opportunity that would bring excitement to my life. Really, anything from the norm would be great.

By December 2010, to my knowledge, nothing had happened. I shared my thoughts with my husband and told him, “Well, there’s less than 30 days left.” Needless to say, I was somewhat disappointed. I really felt like something big was going to happen.

After putting more thought into it, I realized that the something big that I thought might happen, is not necessarily the something big that God had planned.  Sometimes what we expect is not what God is brewing. Whether it has to do with money, relationships, or circumstances. But…

“We know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”

Romans 8:28

So, as I look back over the year, God has brought me to point of saying “yes” to Him no matter what. Yes, Lord, I will do what You have called me to. Yes, Lord, I will seek you at all times. And the biggest yes of all – Yes, Lord, I will share what You have done in my life with others. However, I may stumble, or forget because I’m so caught up in my life, or act impulsively out of my flesh. It may even seem at times that everything is against me. But I press on, believing in what He says is true. Trusting in His plan, His way, and His timing.  I  compose myself and focus on His truth. I then choose to respond the way He desires. No matter what the cost. Yes, Lord, I will continue on my path to be the Godly woman that You have called me to be.

“For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline.”

2 Timothy 1:7
