When Good Intentions Are Wrong: Part 2

So maybe this is more of an update than a part two but you all should know that I am still on Christian Mingle. However,  my whole outlook has completely changed in the past week. I’m not looking to find someone instead it has actually been more about getting myself out of my comfort zone and being obedient.

The Lord has really been doing a number on me this week. It started Sunday morning during my quiet time and has continued. He has invited me to ask Him to work in a very tangible way in my life and to my surprise (shame on me) He has. It has all been through His Word but He has spoken in some very clear ways to me this week and I am listening.

One thing I have realized about myself is I am hasty with actions … Sometimes I try to run ahead of God and assume I know how He will lead or I try to soften the consequences of my disobedience by doing what I think He would have me do now that I have repented. This week, I was called to sit still and shut up. Once I did that I was directed to stay on Christian Mingle as He wasn’t finished with using that in my life. There are still some lessons to be learned. They may be fun, they may be painful but I know they will be for my ultimate good.

So here I am … still on Christian Mingle but with the Lord at the helm. And as far as the little niggling fear of rejection well He sweetly answered that with this verse found in Romans 15:13 …

“I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.”

I’m going to focus my eyes on Him and He can take care of the rest.

Love you all!
