Do I turn left? Do I turn right? Do I stop? Do I go?
What does God want me to do?
What is my new normal look like so I can catch the vision?
Some days I just cant figure it all out. My friend sent me a text to go read; Luke 12:22-34. I did. In response to all the questions above; what I have found is that in all my mentoring and encouraging others; its sometimes difficult for me to receive and be the one who needs mentoring. I should never think to myself that “I know all that.” I need simply to say thank you for reminding me to receive a good measure of direction.
It is my season to be “spoken to” about such things. Sometimes when we go through a difficult or new season in life, God’s Word sounds different, even unclear. His Word is always true but the connection from my ear to my heart and mind is a little off track.
DO NOT WORRY.
I am thankful for friends. Friends that help each other be the best stewards they can be of their life for God’s kingdom. That makes a huge difference. ❤️
Luke 12:22-34 The Message Bible
22-24 He continued this subject with his disciples. “Don’t fuss about what’s on the table at mealtimes or if the clothes in your closet are in fashion. There is far more to your inner life than the food you put in your stomach, more to your outer appearance than the clothes you hang on your body. Look at the ravens, free and unfettered, not tied down to a job description, carefree in the care of God. And you count far more.
25-28 “Has anyone by fussing before the mirror ever gotten taller by so much as an inch? If fussing can’t even do that, why fuss at all? Walk into the fields and look at the wildflowers. They don’t fuss with their appearance—but have you ever seen color and design quite like it? The ten best-dressed men and women in the country look shabby alongside them. If God gives such attention to the wildflowers, most of them never even seen, don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you?
29-32 “What I’m trying to do here is get you to relax, not be so preoccupied with getting so you can respond to God’s giving. People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep yourself in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met. Don’t be afraid of missing out. You’re my dearest friends! The Father wants to give you the very kingdom itself.
33-34 “Be generous. Give to the poor. Get yourselves a bank that can’t go bankrupt, a bank in heaven far from bankrobbers, safe from embezzlers, a bank you can bank on. It’s obvious, isn’t it? The place where your treasure is, is the place you will most want to be, and end up being.
