Today, as I left a work event, I must admit that I was feeling discouraged. Wondering if I was truly following God's plan or if I was just wasting my time doing something not of His leading.
The truth is that I felt His leading when I started my business. I felt His leading as I began building my business and I have seen His hand at work in all I do. I'm not seeing the results I want to see.... What if He has a different view of the results?
As I was driving and praying, I passed a church sign that read "A mighty oak was once a tiny nut that stood its ground" and as I read it, I tuned into the song on the radio which was "Someone Worth Dying For" by Mikeschair. As I started to really hear the song, they sang the words "Your life has purpose" and "Can't you see you are something beautiful". "You are someone worth dying for".
I love how God speaks to us in the every day things. In the things we do, in the music we listen to, in the places we drive. Why was I driving down that road? I could have picked a myriad of paths to my destination, but I choose the long way. God lead me down the long way. That has implications far reaching as well. My life path has taken the long way around. God's plan for my heart was not for it to be full of arrows, but that it be whole, that it be healthy and complete. The good news is that if I surrender it wholly to Him, He will repair it. He will make it like new again.
Today, I again gave Him my broken, crushed, shattered, filthy, trampled on heart. He wants it. He desires it so He can renew it and give it back to me whole, healthy. I can trust Him to protect it, I can be vulnerable with Him safely. He is an awesome God!!!
Will you dance into freedom with me?
