We have so many changes that could possibly be happening for our family, we have been praying day and night! The one thing that I have been wondering is, how do you know if you are following God's will? I struggle with this a lot. Do you just lay it in God's hands and say, "if it's meant to be, it will happen", or do you work for it? Surely God would still want us to work towards our goals. In Genesis 29, Jacob worked worked for seven years to earn Rachel's hand. But how do you know if you are just hoping it will happen so you do everything possible to make it work? Is all this confusion a lack of faith on my part? What I do know, is this change would require a greater responsibility on our part. The patience God is requiring of us is most likely to consider what other changes that we would need to make to our lives, we would need to better ourselves, rely on God, and grow in faith. What I also learned, is that it is ok to say, "Lord, I want this. Show us what we need to do to make this happen, if it is your will. But if it is not your will, spare me of the disappointment." So we're praying. We are trusting. We are ready to accept God's will, even if it doesn't align with what we want.
What decisions do you need to give to God today?
