Making Changes

Following God's leading can be a tough thing sometimes. It can lead to a lot of heartache on this earth. It can lead to changes that you don't see coming. If you've been following my blog for any period of time, you know that my life has been full of a lot of changes over the years. Some of them I saw coming, others caught me completely by surprise.

When Daron died, I begged God to let me have some time without changes taking place. Well, we all know what Proverbs 16:9 says "A man's heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps." This verse has shown itself true in my life lately. I tried to make certain plans for my life - what job I would have, what church I would attend, what ministries I would be involved in, etc. Recently all of those plans proved to be my plans & not God's plans. He has truly directed my steps as of late & led me down a path I wasn't prepared for.

Let me fill you in a little bit:

My Job -- I have been working at the lunch lady as a local elementary for the past 4.5 years. Three weeks ago, I applied for a different job within the same district. I applied for a night custodian job that would allow me to get some extra hours during school breaks & over the summer. Last week, I was offered the job & will be changing jobs next week. This change will be an interesting one & I am looking forward to this change in my life.

Church/Ministry -- I mentioned before that I was stepping down from the ministries I was involved in at my local church. Following God's leading has taken me down a path that I was not expecting at all....a change in what church Taylor & I attend. This one had me questioning God's leading. It also had me nervous since we have been at this church since Daron & I got married in 2002. But, God has never led me astray before & I know that He has my life in His hands. For now, Taylor & I will just attend a church so we can get back into our Christian walks. When God leads to joining a ministry within the church, I will be ready to follow.

I did not go seeking these changes on my own. These changes are truly from God & I must follow His leading. Since getting myself back into the Bible & asking God to once again be the King of my life, I am finding that following Him is easier than before. I can truly follow Him without digging my feet in & being dragged along. When I gave my life back to God & asked Him to take complete control, my life changed for the better. These changes are showing this to be fact & I am thankful for that.
