When God is loud and clear…

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.
