One Step At A Time

Genesis 12:1 The LORD had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.

I feel like Abraham in Genesis 12 right now. God told him to go but did not give him specific instructions on where he was going, what route to take nor advise on what to avoid on the trip. God has given me my “Go”. In a previous post I shared that I believe the Lord is leading me to write a book and to begin public speaking.
 
Many of you know me and can attest that I don’t sit around and wait to do something that I think needs to be done. I will pray, read the word, seek wise counsel and then MOVE IT towards the end goal.
 
This “GO” has been a new adventure for me. One of the things that I was worried about was what would I write about and would I have the words to say. There are some days that the thoughts and words come flowing and other times where I have nothing to say. I have notes on my phone, on napkins, scratch pieces of paper and even on important documents that I found laying around. The funny thing is that sometimes I just write down a quick thought and then when I see my notes later I laugh out loud, because I have no idea what they mean.
 
I have been listening to webinars, reading books and articles and talking to others who are where I want to be. It would be so much easier if I could flip to the back of my life book and see how it all ends. It would be even better if every day God would send me a to do list for that day. But you know what? Neither of those things are going to happen. Every day, I get up, pray and seek wisdom from the greatest life coach I know, God, and trust that He will lead my steps on the path He wants me to take for that day.
 
Todays devotion is really to challenge you to follow what God is asking you to do. You may be scared. You may be excited. You may be unsure. I was all of these things too and some of them right now. All I know is that if God has ask you to “GO” then he will get you to it. I believe that there will be growing pains along the way and every day will not be a successful day in itself ,however it will lead to exactly where God wants you to be.
 
I am not a patient person and to be honest I want to be in churches and venues speaking right now. I want my daily post to reach thousands and to write and sell millions of my books. I want lives to be transformed and people to be encouraged through my words. I want to take all my experiences and wisdom that I have acquired over the years to benefit, motivate and challenge others. These are some my wants but most of all I want to bring Glory and Honor to God.
 
The story ended perfectly in the end for Abraham. He had a lot of bumps and bruises along the way. Some were of his own doing and God allowed others to happen to help make him a better man. I don’t know how my story will end but I do know that I trust the Lord, will follow Him and because of that it will end exactly the way God intends it too.
 
Continue to pray for me as I follow His lead on this new adventure. Let me and my followers know what “GO” adventure God is asking you to go on. We will pray for you and follow you along the path to your success.
 
Give me your suggestions for future post, comments on current or future post, contacts you can introduce me to who can give me advise or share their wisdom? Your help, prayers, feedback, likes, shares and contacts are encouraged. Thank you for following me on my journey!

I wanted to kick start your week with scripture only for encouragement. Sometimes no expounding is necessary.
