Just listen. Slow down and listen. Learn and read and pray, and be still long enough to hear His voice. I have been incredible comforted ever since I made the decision to stay home. A comfort and peace I don’t deserve.
My life over the last few years has been busy and I allowed it to be that way. I thrived in a busy and hectic environment. Not just at work…. I loved filling our weekends with projects too.
Almost two years ago we moved and found a new church. It was highly encouraged to join a small group and get connected. My initial thought, “I don’t want to give up a night in an already crazy busy week.” Without telling me, my better half signed us up. It was exactly what I needed.
Two weeks ago I joined a Bible Study Fellowship (BSF). I started mid class was a little nervous on jumping-in. God has been so gracious with me. I have made so many things a priority over spending time with Him, yet he has surrounded me with great encouragers and the right messages.
• The significance of the roles we each play. There is not a need to compare, they are purposefully different and each is important.
• When we keep God at the center of our lives we watch for his direction and daily seek Him to lead us.
• Trust God. Seek his guidance. Seek the guidance of those who place them in the center of their lives. He will provide and give peace.
• Complaining is a learned behavior, so is thanksgiving and contentment.
He is gently leading me, changing my heart and perspective and providing such undeserved peace and comfort along the way. Reflecting back, I see it. Events that seemed so minor at the time now have bigger meaning and value.
