But sometimes the narrow path isn't always straight. It's not a simple fork in the road where you can easily decide which way to go. The path is narrow, but it is also messy. Maybe there is no simple “yes” or “no”, but how I wish it were.
So I am left to narrow my choices down, make the decision that seems to tough to make. But there is no other option. Am I running away because I am scared, or did I choose this for the wrong reasons. I examine my heart fully to make sure it is right, and if it isn't then I am sure God will do something with that brokenness too.
Leaning on His promises, and trusting in Him, knowing that His plans for me are good, I finally say “no.” Not right now, not in this moment, it's just not for me. I desire to see the amazing faces of my children in the morning and I long to continue to write and connect with my community HERE, not there.
So I have made my choice. More opportunities arise. My heart is excited. I think I made the right choice, and if I didn't then I am sure God will use that too.
Our faith begins with what we know and believe about God. Our faith will carry us how far we are willing to let it take us. Faith is a choice and we need to begin by choosing to believe in Jesus and His power to move mountains, heal the sick, and save us from all our sins through His sacrifice on the cross.
