It was a message of Warning to a group of young incarcerated men. Yet it was a message for me. And, I wonder is it a message for you?
As I listened to the words and scripture I began to realize that there are things in my life I need to look at. I realized that quite possibly God was sending me a warning . . .
In all your was acknowledge Him and He will make your path straight.
Proverbs 3: 5,6
Your attitude should be that of Christ Jesus.
I had been telling myself that even though the money wasn't great that it was consistant. I had convinced myself because I was offered a job before my self imposed deadline that it was the job that God wanted me to have.
I had ignored the list of things that both Cowboy and I made about my job. The hours, the kind of job, the environment. I had told myself that God wanted me there and that I could make a difference in the lives of my co-workers that I could share my faith.
Yet each day as I went to work I felt more and more defeated. I listened to myself as I began to specifically pray for certain people. I realized that each Friday as I drove home that I was praying and asking God to help me not to think about work or the people there until I had to return on Monday.
That he wants me to have Peace and that he is with us. And that he will provide not only what we need financially but he will provide a job where I know He has called me.
To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example that you should follow in his steps.
1 Peter 2:21
And today I am seeking Him. And I am waiting and I am looking for the steps He wants me to take.
Are you looking for the right path. Is there something in your life that you feel is disguising itself as something good but you know it's not. Or maybe your not sure how God wants you to proceed.
I would love to pray for you. I would love to pray with you.
