He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you But to do justly, To love mercy, And to walk humbly with your God? Micah 6:8
I'm not sure where exactly God is leading me. I am certain of very little in this life. For now, however, I believe God is calling me to share my faith and my love for Him. And to share the experiences that have helped to strengthen it.
My nature would silence me. It whispers, "Nobody cares what you have to say. What makes you think anyone is interested in your life?" That could very well be true. I listen to others and sometimes wonder, "What makes you so sure you are right, or that anyone cares even if you are?"
God created every one of us. He gave us value and created us for His purpose. I have no confidence whatsoever in my ability to make the right choices. That is why I depend on Him to put me on the path of His choosing, not mine. I ask, and sometimes the answer is abundantly clear. Other times there is noise and confusion, and I may not be so sure. I may wander in a direction that He didn't plan for me to go. I'm okay with that.
I know He's still in control. He will close a door, redirect me, or do whatever it takes - because He's got it covered.
I need not compare my path to that of another. I need only, in humility, listen to God as He leads.
