Have you ever prayed for something so long and then eventually stopped because you weren’t seeing any results? I have. As a matter of fact, this blog is a prime example. I prayed for quite some time about whether I should continue with my blogging idea. It seemed like God was completely ignoring me to be honest. I am a stay at home mom, so I figured a blog would keep me busy and give me the opportunity to share my story. As usual, God’s timing is the opposite of my timing. I went through a rough patch a couple of months ago. I am certain God needed me in a different place emotionally and spiritually before I began writing. I didn’t understand that then, but I do now. Story of my life. But that is the beauty of it all. Trusting God with every fiber of our being can be so very tough at times. I have learned that obedience brings much better results than trying to control a situation on my own. When we try to control everything, we are steadily working against God. Whether it is timing or making a life changing decision, we have the best therapist there is! He can be reached by prayer and scripture.
A couple of days ago I was reading one of my devotionals. At the very end the writer asked, “Is there a story you have been longing to tell?” The next question was, “Do you want to launch a blog to inspire people?” YES and YES! Right there in black and white were the words I needed to read. Every time I get to the point of thinking God is ignoring me, He is loud and clear! I felt so relieved. He finally gave me the signal to go ahead. So that is exactly what I am doing! The previous two posts were written before I publicized my page.
