Guided

 

We ask God to give you complete knowledge of His will and to
give you spiritual wisdom and understanding. All the while, you will grow as
you learn to know God better and better.

Colossians 1:9-10 (NLT)

What is God’s will for your life?
That’s a big question. Not many of
us can answer.
We’re often told that our goal
should be to discover our life’s purpose – that God created each of us with
particular talents and experiences to play a specific role in His master plan.
Whether we seek it out or stumbled
upon it accidentally, the discovery doesn’t happen all of a sudden. It takes years
of practice following God in the ordinary, everyday things, listening to His
voice when deciding who to sit next to at the table, when to accept a new
responsibility, or which radio station to tune to.
In my last post I invited you to
spend one day consciously and continually seeking God’s will. Learn to
recognize His voice and practice following His guidance.
What does that look like?
It definitely means maintaining a
conversation with God, also known as prayer. It might mean asking God for
wisdom before making a decision or responding to the internal voice telling you
what to order for lunch. It might involve acting on an urge to say something to
a stranger. For that one day, you might take particular notice of your
seemingly random, fleeting thoughts.
Will you join me for one intentional
day? Ask for His involvement. Try to
listen and respond.
Let’s share our experiences in the
comments! I’m betting there will be some amazing God-incidents.

    Amen. I am joining you in prayer. I know God's #1 will for us is to glorify Him in all we thnk do and say. May I accomplish that through the Holy Spirit.

      It takes practicing with the small decisions so we're ready for a big one. Thanks for your positive, faithful attitude. Do you have a constant 'what would Jesus do' conversation going on in your head?

    I loved this post. And what I really like about your writing is the peace I feel when I read it. You write from a depth of knowledge of Him, a life of listening daily. I've lived this way for awhile now, but I have to admit that there are days when i'm amazed when I follow the little prompt inside that I know is from Him and it's just as He promised. Somedays I follow the prompting in faith without the clear answer. But it's so good when He let's me know He really is there, leading. Okay. . . now to a technical question. . . can you set up Mail Chimp so that we can share on FB and comment without coming to your site? I did share on Twitter.

      Thank you for your kind words Andy. I too am still amazed when I see His hand so clearly moving in my life. I smile with glee with assurance that He's guiding me.
      As for your technical question, thank you for pushing me to revisit my MailChimp template. I set it up long ago as a complete newbie and haven't tweaked the design since. We do settle in to habits and need to step back every now and then. I was able to add a Facebook like button, but not a Facebook comment button. It says comments aren't enabled. I've poked around my profiles and can't find the problem, but the Facebook button is an improvement. Thanks for the advice!
