Lately, I have been talking less to God and listening more to what He has to say to me.
Rather than my usual long 20-30 minute prayers, I have been talking to Him in short prayers, asking for Him to look into my heart, to change and mold me, and use me in the way He sees fit.
I feel like He has been speaking to me within these last few weeks, but I’m not clear on what He has to say to me just yet. However, my listening has me reflecting back to 2011. In my nine months of unemployment, I heard Him louder and clearer than ever. It was the happiest time of my life honestly. Maybe it was because I had to stop focusing on work, life, and myself in order to listen about the plans He’s got for me and what He had to say.
Fast forward two years later and today, I am at the crossroads of my life where I want surrender my heart and life to Him.
I want to listen and obey His commands. I want to see what He wants me to do in His name for His kingdom and glory with the talents He has given me. One thing I know that has been crystal clear since the start of 2013 is that I don’t feel at ease or happy if I’m not doing work for Him. Tonight, I’m going to say that one short prayer because I know after that, my life will forever change.
Have a happy day and light up the world with your smile! Xx
