Listen, Breathe, Step

Listen, Breathe, Step.jpg

Have you ever had that moment when you knew that you knew what you were suppose to do? So you mustered up the courage, took a deep breath, trusted God and stepped out? I'm trying very hard to hear what God wants me to do with my life. I use to think it was a bad thing to try, but then I realized recently, that's definitely a lie from Satan. I felt like trying wasn't allowing God to work through me. Then I realized, how is he suppose to work through me if I'm not trying to know Him more and be more like Him? Trying to follow God and spread his word is what this life is all about. 

Here's where the tricky part comes in. Me. I get in the way of God so many times throughout the week and it's frustrating. I took one of those steps today to try to follow, and find out what God is wanting me to do with my life. As soon as I clicked (it has something to do with purchasing a big ticket item) I immediately started doubting myself. What if by doing this I actually get a stedfast answer? What if I do this and the answer is no? 

There are many times in my life where I have had those self doubts but not clicked. I've sat at home and not done what I knew I was suppose to. Here's the thing, even in following God I'm going to make mistakes, but I would much rather be stumbling my way though following God than sitting comfortably at home. 

I read this in C.S. Lewis' Mere Christianity recently and it's so true. "Faith is trusting in the character and promises of God to the point that you act, whether you feel like it or not." What do you need to take a step of Faith and act on?
