I just want another head, I lamented to my girlfriend the other day. But it isn’t happening. So maybe it is just a perspective change I need?
Maybe, she says, it is to truly believe in God’s words. He’s already provided all you need at this moment.
“If you decide for God, living a life of God-worship, it follows that you don’t fuss about what’s on the table at mealtimes or whether the clothes in your closet are in fashion. There is far more to your 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 birds, free and unfettered, not tied down to a job description, careless in the care of God. And you count far more to him than birds. Matthew 6-25-34
Yes, it’s to believe I already have all that I need to pursue, do the work, be obedient with the gifts and talents He has given even though I feel like I need more. And in my case, as a single Christian woman, that more can be wrapped in a man where love, respect and compatibility ties us, and he wants to come along side me to build His kingdom.
Yes, it’s to believe that God has already given me all that I need so I do not hesitate to take that next step.
It is to believe that I have enough–enough resources and the right mind on my own (even though it may seem crazy to the world) to pursue my dreams and visions.
For the Word says….
If we are “out of our mind,” as some say, it is for God; if we are in our right mind, it is for you. 2 Corinthians 5:13
And we are never alone.
“Be strong. Be brave. Be fearless. You are never alone.” Joshua 1:9
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not onto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your path.” Proverbs 3:5-6
“You are loved more than you will ever know by someone who died to know you.” Romans 5:6
Is there something you feel God is calling you to do yet you are holding back, feeling like you do not have the right frame of mind, the resources, or people to pursue it?
I pray you know that God has chosen you.
For we know, brothers and sisters, loved by God, that He has chosen you. 1 Thessalonians 1:4
And that He will give you direction on the way to go as you step out in faith.
I will instruct you and teach you the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. Psalms 32:8
And that you know He equips you with everything you need as you do His will for you.
Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepard of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen Hebrews 13:20-21
Maybe one day God will provide me that ‘head,’ bring me together with a man to pursue a Kingdom calling He has that together we are to build. Regardless, I believe that He continues to do a good work in me and in you now.
Being confident of this, that who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Philippians 1:6
May you step out in faith today, my friend, knowing God has given you all you need today to pursue that nudge, that calling, that vision, that dream.
The world needs you.
