Say – Say What?
God is looking for each one of us to say “Yes”! I looked back over the last two years at the growth that has occurred in me and realize what a difference saying yes has made. Every day if we will only listen, God speaks to us. Have you heard Him, have you heard His whisper – not audibly but a tug at your heart, have you heard Him call you? I have many times and even more so the last few years as I have grown closer to Him.
I heard him nudging me to retire back in 2011. Really, I would normally have given months and months of notice, but He nudged me one November day and I retired December 31. You see He know we were going to lose my Mom about 14 months after that. It gave me many more moments with her than I would have had if I had continued working running by there in the late afternoons tired, running up there on Sunday after church tired. God knew, He nudged, and I said YES!
A few months after I retired He lead me to on-line Bible studies and then He said it was time to be volunteer to be a group leader and I was like what, what! Later as I was approached to be a team leader it was like No Lord, I’m not capable. He said I will equip you. I love it. I love meeting women all over the world. Many I have met personally and recently got to spend time with 200 of them at a retreat.
Well a few months after that He said it was time to teach. I said say what! I am not a teacher. Guess what? I AM because of who He is!
Romans 9:25-26 – I’ll call nobodies and make them somebodies: I’ll call the unloved and make them beloved.”
I’d love for you to share you say what moments!
