Too often recently I have found myself dealing with regret or frustration over who I am in that moment, over where I am at, reflecting that this moment, this place in life was not where I thought I would be ten years ago. It’s not even where I thought I would be two years ago! In that struggle of fighting back regret and tears, it’s amazing how God whispers into my life. I have to be careful though or I will miss it. I will be listening to everything and everyone else, drowning out His words with my own.
God has shown me that He doesn’t come loudly into my day but in the stillness before dawn, in the quiet respite of words by a student or friend, in the whisper of a prayer in the midst of chaos. That’s where I must be intentional about finding Him.
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”-Joshua 1:9
