Today I wanted to share a quick encouraging post (and video over on my FB page! Click the first one that has the same title as this post.)
Recently, through all the heart work & change that’s been going on I’ve felt God give me something I can use as a helpful tip throughout decision making and things. The idea of either “pressing in” or “pivoting”.
Many times we’ll have plans that we’ll pray over, and see direction on, and sometimes they just do not go exactly as we’d hoped, no matter what. We have to realize, and unfortunately sometimes be reminded often, that we’re not fully in control. But I’ve gotten into the habit during these times to ask God if he’s asking me to “press in” and keep going anyway, to be refined by the fire so to speak. OR if He’s asking me to “pivot” and let go of the ideas I had, so I can see another alternative that just isn’t linear, but can be just as awesome, if not more so! Because I’m the control freak (at least sometimes) when it comes to plans and I’ll just run myself into the ground trying to force them to work! (Yes, it backfires always!!)
So today, with any challenges you’re facing, ask God if he wants you to keep pressing into it and go full steam ahead and learn what you need to learn, OR if he’s asking you to let go of the vision you had in your head to possibly go another route this time, but ultimately still find it all works out for your good! (Romans 8:28)
