Twisting In The Wind

Have you ever been in the middle of life's journey and found yourself confused as to which way to go?

That is where I am right now in life. You pray and you pray, but it is still too foggy to see which way to turn. You can't see clearly and you are straining hard trying to make out the road ahead.

You read your Bible and you seek His face, but still...nothing. You wait and wait...still nothing...but confusion.

Do I turn to the right, turn to the left or go straight ahead? There are consequences regardless of the direction you chose to go. What do you do? Keep waiting, seeking and praying? Yes, that is all you really can do. Is it easy? I can tell you...definitely...no, it is not easy. Time is running out to make that decision, the crossroad is fast approaching.

I feel like a windsock...twisting, turning around and around in the wind...hanging out there all alone. You think one minute that you have a clear view of the road ahead and the very next minute...you don't. You think, one minute that you understand the direction that God wants you to go and the next minute, you feel like it is Satan's deception that you feel.

If you make the wrong decision and step outside of God's will, then you will pay for the wrong decision for a very long time. You're in the 11th hour....

I have read and prayed over the following verses:

Psalm 32:8
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you.

Proverbs 3:1-10, 13, 19-26
My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, 2 for they will prolong your life many years and bring you prosperity. 3 Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. 4 Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man. 5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. F6 7 Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil. 8 This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones. 9 Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops; 10 then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine. 11 My son, do not despise the LORD's discipline and do not resent his rebuke,
13 Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, the man who gains understanding,
19 By wisdom the LORD laid the earth's foundations, by understanding he set the heavens in place; 20 by his knowledge the deeps were divided, and the clouds let drop the dew. 21 My son, preserve sound judgment and discernment, do not let them out of your sight; 22 they will be life for you, an ornament to grace your neck. 23 Then you will go on your way in safety, and your foot will not stumble; 24 when you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet. 25 Have no fear of sudden disaster or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked, 26 for the LORD will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being snared.

I know that God will direct my path but I keep asking myself...do I have a distorted view of the limits to God's Will? Am I putting God in a box? Am I thinking there could only be one choice that would be God's Will? I am trying to keep my mind on God and His Will only, not to let Satan creep into my thoughts causing me to have doubts, trust God to make His direction for my life absolutely, 100% crystal clear...open the door wide or slam it shut...so there is no question as to what is the right choice.

If you have found yourself in a similar situation and don't mind sharing your experience...I need to hear from you.

Have a blessed day!

  1. Jen, sometimes God is just waiting for us to take that first step of faith and trust Him for the rest. Many times have I been where you are talking about but when you simply trust Him, you will recieve a peace and no matter what the outcome you know God is in it.
