In silence I sit as a tug-of-war ensues within my mind. A battle between life’s responsibilities and the destiny God has called me too.
So much to do….
So many to email, call, or just make contact with…
Tumbling class, baseball practice, church, school and social events…
Grocery shopping, household chores and pets
And, I cannot forget the most important thing of all: breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner as little mouths must be fed…
My destiny lies dormant underneath a canopy of to-do lists. It whimpers under the weight of such a heavy load and yet, I must hope and dream. I must trust God with what He has called me too.
But, does God trust me?
My God has entrusted me with a destiny, just as He has entrusted you. And, He is waiting to see what we will do with it.
Destiny starts as a God given desire, gifting or talent. It’s the dream within our heart. The one that screams this is what you were born to do. When I hear its call, I can either answer or dismiss it.
I answered. And, I called upon God to show me how and what to do with it. Covering the dream with prayer, I waited for the Lord to open the door and show me the next step.
But, in the waiting, I became busy.
I used to say, “I know what God wants me to do, but I have small children and I’m buried in life. It’s hard, but He understands.”
That, however, is no longer good enough. I’ve seen and tasted the things of God. I have heard His call and understand that He is waiting on me.
Well, I’m ready.
I’m ready to stand up and take the challenge. So, today I break the silence and say, “Yes Lord…here am I…send me.”
No matter how hard, no matter how inconvenient, no matter how time consuming, I will pursue the destiny the Lord has called me too.
Today, I return God and His call to the top of my priority list.
Are you ready to answer “yes” to the call? If so, I’d love to hear about it, in hopes of encouraging each other in the destiny of our lives.
