Read Jeremiah 29:11-12
Ask Him to lead you
It was laid on my heart today to ask God for His guidance and allow Him to lead me. Sometimes in life, we have an idea of how we want our lives to unfold, but God already knows what is in our future. Read Jeremiah 29:11-12. It reminds us, God already has a plan for our lives. We simply need to ask Him to reveal it to us, get on board and trust Him to be our source and light!
Ask for direction
I had a conversation with my mother and this thought really came to light. Our conversation was really like no other. Out of the blue, (or should I say God purposed her) she spoke to me about how she chose her career.
My mother stated at the age of eight, she asked God to reveal to her what He wanted her to do. He revealed to her she should be a special education teacher. Having a sister with special needs, she understood the importance of her calling.
He will give you grace
She stated, “God gave her grace to perform her job and she never once regretted her decision.” She found herself in situations others would complain about, such as changing young adult students’ diapers, keeping students clean, and simply going beyond the call of duty. But, what really stood out is that she enjoyed every minute. While it was a requirement to wear a mask, she chose not to because she wanted her students to know she loved them and had a great deal of compassion for them.
God provided her with the stamina to make it through these times, and when that chapter of her life was over, He revealed to her it was time to move on.
Reflection: If you are unclear regarding the direction of your life, ask God what does He desire for you. And whatever He reveals to you ask Him for His grace to do His will.
