I came across this great quote today, and just had to share it:
As I shared in my post from yesterday, I certainly don’t have things figured out (not by a long shot!), but I am trying to move forward in faith. I feel like this quote really confirms that I’m traveling on the right path – even if I’m not sure quite where it is leading.
A good friend said to me recently, “If you knew what was going to happen next, you wouldn’t need faith, now would you?”
So I encourage you to keep moving forward, even (especially?) if you don’t understand where God is leading you. Continue to trust Him, and – most importantly – keep moving forward!
Dear Lord, I freely admit to You that I do not have anything figured out, but I have decided to move forward in faith anyway. I am both excited and a little terrified about what will happen next, but I can rest in the knowledge that You are fully aware of what is around the corner, and will prepare me to respond appropriately when the time is right.
Please equip me with the courage and boldness needed to step out (and forward) on the path that You’ve set before me, even when I have no idea where You’re leading me. After all – to repurpose the quote from my good friend – if I knew what was going to happen next, then I wouldn’t need to trust You, now would I?
In Your name I pray, Amen.
PS – A note to my dear Daily Thankful readers: I would welcome your prayerful input on something. I feel like I’m at a fork in the road where this blog is concerned. I’m not sure if the Lord has me to continue posting about my own experiences and reflections on gratitude, and/or if He wants Daily Thankful to become a platform where others can share their “dailythankfuls” (as Margaret so sweetly puts it), too. Understand that I’m not planning on making any sudden moves here, but if you have any thoughts on whether or not I should open Daily Thankful up to others, feel free to either say something in the comments, or drop me a line at hello at dailythankful dot org. Thanks!
