A lot of the time it is a serious answer I wait on.
Recently I had agreed to step out of my comfort zone and do something that involved my family and a very sensitive situation. It could easily be misconstrued as haughty and boastful, and my family expressed their concern and discomfort about it.
I wanted to move forward as my true intent was to glorify God and to witness for Him. My family was not buying my explanation. The night before this was to take place I was restless and found myself praying for God to send me a sign, a really clear stop me dead in my tracks sign, if I was not supposed to do this.
The morning sunlight streamed thru my bedroom window and I arose still unsure of what I was doing. But, I trudged forward preparing as best I could.
The day unfolded almost magically. The family was committed and involved and God led us each step of the way.
My confirmation came clearly and in the most remarkable way. Yes, I was to do this. And my reward for taking this leap of faith was a blessing to others. Know that God examines your heart. He looks at your intentions and if they are pure and glorify Him, they are right.
My family also received a lesson that day without me even having to utter one word.
God wants us to show His light through our daily actions. If we have an opportunity to shine, and we do it, even if it is uncomfortable, it pleases Him.
Seek His direction and follow your heart.
