We will always find Jesus if we look for Him. When times are difficult and our path is not clear we often search for what we feel is missing i.e. wisdom, freedom, clarity. This has been a month of great challenge for me as my vision and steps have been made clearer. How do I get from where I am to where I feel called? There are so many obstacles, it feels impossible. Time constraints and physical needs are putting pressure on me to make things happen now.
I’m learning that my fear has kept me steps behind God or running way too many steps ahead of Him. God’s Love and guidance has brought me to a place of total dependence to walk one step at a time with Him at His pace. This requires that I spend time with Him daily through reading the word, prayer, and listening for His voice before making decisions.
We are not to seek the gift but the Giver of the gift. Everything we need will come when our focus is firmly planted on God who provides all we need.
”Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6
Look up. He’s there. Focus on His presence and you will find all you need physically, spiritually, and emotionally. One day, one moment at a time.
