Where He leads...I shall go.
So often, God speaks to us but we don't always listen as we should. We even "give" things to Him but in reality we still have a grip on it. Sure that grip may not be what it was before we "gave" it to Him but we have not fully released it to him. There are other times where he is tugging at our hearts to do something but we often ignore Him. We don't want to "give Him what he wants. We are like that, us humans. We often want what our hearts desire and we don't pay attention to what He desires for us. I have learned these lessons with our move out to good ol' San Antone. I love the city, love Texas and love the friends I have made. The ones I have made here can tell the ones back in Mississippi that I speak of you and the great state often. I do miss it. I miss my family. I miss the trees, grass, water and the southern charm.
Even with all the things I miss I KNOW God has a plan for me being here. I don't know if it is for myself, Baylee or Brian. It could even be for the people that we left behind in Mississippi as to why God brought us here. All I can tell you is he has a plan. I just have to keep reminding myself of this. When I started out here I was called to work at a particular hospital. I met some wonderful people there that I am lucky to call friends! At the same time, there was a tugging in my heart. In the course of just a few days, Baylee mentioned the hours we were working and an opportunity arose for me to apply for a different job. I wasn't looking to go anywhere else but I felt another tug. One that I recognized to be from God. I then chose to pray about it. The short of the story is I applied and received an offer for a new job. I did ultimately choose to take the new job. I do plan to stay along at the hospital job as long as they will let me PRN but I am very pleased with my new career path. I see doors opening for me that I wasn't even aware were available!
What is God telling you to do? Are you listening? Will you obey?
