Sometimes I wish God led us as he did the Israelites – a cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. Then I would know, without a doubt, the Lord was leading me.
I’m at the point in life where each day is a blank page to be filled. Trouble is, I’m not sure how best to fill it. My husband’s job occupies him and my children have grown. The changing health needs of my parents compelled me to quit my part-time job. So I’m home – often alone (apart from my aging Bulldog). I travel with my husband, visit my kids, volunteer in my community, keep my house and work in the yard, and write children’s books. I keep busy.
But at the end of the day, I’m not confident I’ve made the best use of the time God’s given me. Have I ‘looked to Jesus’ (Hebrews 12)? Have I ‘walked by the Spirit’ (Galatians 5)? Or am I just spinning my wheels?
I wish to glorify God. I desire to make a difference in this world for Jesus Christ. I want my light to shine so others may see my good works and glorify my Father who is in heaven (Matthew 5:16). But is wanting it enough?
Usually, I write about my struggle and share the answer the Lord has given me in His word, but today I’m going to leave the question unanswered. I want to hear from you. I need your wisdom.
How do you perceive God’s direction? How does God lead you?
