Every time I try to step up and take control of his project and my life, God corrects me by leading me to his word to read to help me understand I’m getting off his track and onto my own … again.
As of yet, the only person I know that gets this right now is Joyce Meyer, who, like me, has a strong-will that had also been corrupted by a lot of negative, harmful experiences, and as a result, prevented us both for some time to listen to good advice, including from him.
Today he reminded me about wilfulness …the price Jonah paid and the command he gave to Abraham to leave all he knew behind and move to a new country.
Took me the day to get over my anger and disappointment that Vancouver is not where I am supposed to go, but California. Not that I don’t want to go, but in my mind it just seems like such a daunting thing considering my current circumstances. The frustrating, yet rewarding challenge is I am to keep doing the work without seeing significant results yet, to experience other people’s lack of support and doubt too, while God connects the dots from all the seeds he has had me plant.
I know to non-believers and even to believers this makes me look like a lot of things I don’t want to look like, but I have it on several good authorities, blowing people’s minds open with things people say can’t happen is one of God’s favorite things to do … because those kinds of things help people believe in more than ourselves and our own power.
So, when am I moving? In a heartbeat I could be gone. But I don’t know and I am going to stop thinking about it, except I will continue to prepare in expectation because I am going to faithfully follow God’s lead because this is so much bigger than I have been able to achieve on my own.
The really great news? I’m so excited to see the realization of all he has put in my heart, mind, and spirit … and to share it with you in so many wonderful ways!
