First off, it should be known that I am usually a terrible decision maker. Not like I make bad decisions, It just takes me forever to get to the decision I’m making! My mom has joked that it would take an hour for me to pick out deodorant at the store. Decisions just stress me out!
I guess the big part of it has always been that I’m scared of missing out on God’s will. I would always try to spiritualize it, saying that it’s a good thing. I mean, it’s the will of God we are talking about here! It’s nothing to play around with.
But am I really that spiritual? Probably not.
When it came down to deciding on what I would do for Madagascar, the Lord really began to teach me that it wasn’t about the decision, it was simply about walking with Him. I didn’t have to know what was coming up in a week, month, year, or whenever, I just needed to walk with Him that day. It was seriously the most freeing experience.
Knowing that I didn’t have to know.
Walking with the Lord is a step by step, day by day process. It’s trusting Him in the small things and the big things. It’s realizing that sometimes I don’t know where we are headed and that’s totally okay.
Because who I am with is more important than where I am going.
And the same is for you too. No matter what decisions you are facing, just walk with Him. He will guide you in each step and you will see His goodness the whole way.
Micah 6:8- “He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”
P.S. Thank you so much for your prayers and support. God has been so good. I have bought both sets of plane tickets and am working on my budget for living expenses while I am there. T-shirts are still available. You can go to the June archives and purchase/donate if you would like. Thank you again for investing in me as I walk with the Lord!
