Jesus leans in, He whispers, He nudges. He says “Do you know there’s more? Do you want to grow more in Me?” I falter, I’m scared of more questions and doubts. He says “But you know I’m here, the more questions the more you are aware of how much I have in my hands. I don’t miss a thing.” I say “Okay, but I’m scared.” He chuckles “I take care of of you just as gently as I did when dad died. You must love Me and obey me. And know I have so much grace for your process.” I whisper through muffled tears “I believe You.”
Somedays you just feel that God is calling you deeper, calling you to something you need to grow in. We get so distracted, so consumed with making things happen - we often forget about His often-upside-down-wrong-way-round right way of life. You doubt the gifts He’s given you, you get shy of what people think. You worry about what they will say. But then we must realize that we’re all on a journey. A hard, often crazy - beautiful adventure with the Lord.
That we do need to actually get on our knees and face and ask Him for help and also there’s times where you don’t need an SOS - you get into a regular pattern of being aware of His moving, Beautiful Spirit nudging and leading, His gentle voice pushing us to be the best version of ourselves He sees from the beginning.
Do you know what the best part is? He loves you now, He loves you in the process and He loves you fully who He created you to be. He never changes yet His love changes us. Its never static, its always dynamic and alive.
Maybe you need to cut some distractions, maybe you need to listen for that still small voice, maybe you need to run hard after something you love and use it to worship Him. Maybe you just need to rest in what He’s done for you and listen for whats next.
Don’t have faith? Ask Him and take a step forward.
You’ll never not leave changed with an encounter with the One whom your soul loves.
