Guidance…

During my adult life, there were a few times when I questioned where I was headed, but for the most part, I had a direction in mind and usually carried out a plan to execute the intended outcome for my life.  You see, I was a go-getter.

Most of those times, however, my go-getting was not by way of instructions requested from God.  I just always knew that I wanted to be great at something.

Ironically, each time I would go after something, there would seem to be something or someone placed there to distract me and either blatantly block my blessing or lead me astray by way of emotional nonsense and shock presented to me in the form of some great challenge.  Do you ever feel that way?

This most recent distraction which brought me great detriment and challenge was a vehicle collision and it knocked me off my feet!

I found myself feeling lost and struggling to find my way back from this, just as I had in other situations during my lifetime.

While I am thankfully back on my intended path and I still possess a strong drive to succeed, that tragic experience took something very precious away from me, the deep intensity of my drive and level of confidence that I possessed, which took me years to obtain.

I am currently working on restoring my life, only this time I am consulting God every step of the way, which brings me to my point.

A couple of days ago I had a very rare and much needed moment home alone.  It felt rather refreshing.  There was complete and utter silence for the first time in a long time.

So, I began drinking a cup of my favorite tea and I started to think about God’s plans for my life and I asked him to give me more specific guidance because I was feeling unsure.

Suddenly, I opened my bible to read a little, with no specific passage in mind, and there was Psalms 32:8 which stood out so vividly.  It said: “I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go:  I will guide thee with mine eye”.

I know this was God giving me assurance that he will guide me along the way.  Clarity about the specific steps I am to take will come at just the right time. So, no worries because he’s got me!
