The Upcoming

I have been sitting here this afternoon, alternating between some reading, some praying and some thinking about the upcoming days, weeks and months. Which is why I have been praying.

Have you ever felt on the cusp of some breakthrough in your life, a point of inflection where things are going to start moving forward in an ever quickening pace?

That's how I feel right now. That things are going to start accelerating, that the Lord is going to step up the tempo, and that I am going to have to push to keep up. Since He only gives us what we can handle, I may feel overwhelmed by it, but I will not drown, He will not let me.

It feels exciting. I am eager to start, anxious to begin, and I desire to serve Him as He has already foreseen.

Why do I feel this way today? I do not know why I feel like I am at the edge, ready to leap into His arms.

But I do. The hard part will be to be patient until His voice says "GO", softly but firmly, with a confidence, a surety that can only come from Him.

"Dear Lord, I want all that you have for me, but in your timing, not mine."

Wild, huh?

I know exactly what you are talking about. I have felt lately that I am at the beginning of something new about to begin. That I am on the edge of something big taking place. Maybe just in me, maybe what He is going to have me do. I don't know what it is. It is like He is pushing me forward to a higher level for a higher purpose. Strange feeling.

I found you on the Rediscovering the Church site.

God Bless!

Thanks for stopping by. It is a strange feeling, but I also feel peace with the uncertainty at this time because He will reveal when He is ready.

His will not mine be done.

You're right Andy; it is such a feeling of peace. I've been there myself a time or two feeling anxious and excited, yet curious and slightly fearful (only because I know God allows trials).

Right on the money; His will not ours!

Hey Andy,

I think I feel the same way... I think so at least. As you know from my blog I'm a little confused about what I'm feeling/hearing right now.

I pray that God gives you the direction you need!

Oh, and Sherri, I'm glad you've found Andy's blog. He's a great guy.

Thanks for the prayer and the vote of confidence!
we can support each other as we wait on the Lord.
