I’m wrestling with the thoughts I had from “Take courage…”
There were other examples I could have used instead of the one I used about playing guitar. So now, I wonder “What’s next to do?”
This question comes from today’s Oswald Chambers.
…Put everything in your life afloat upon God, going out to sea on the great swelling tide of His purpose, and your eyes will be opened. If you believe in Jesus, you are not to spend all your time in the calm waters just inside the harbor, full of joy, but always tied to the dock. You have to get out past the harbor into the great depths of God…
When you know that you should do something and you do it, immediately you know more. Examine where you have become sluggish, where you began losing interest spiritually, and you will find that it goes back to a point where you did not do something you knew you should do… My Utmost for His Highest, June 08.
Sometimes I look back at a decision I made to leave one church. I’ve wondered on several occasions if that was the right thing to do. At the time, I thought it was. I believe God even led me to specific passages of Scripture that helped me in that decision. I wonder still… so much turbulent water has gone under the bridge since then that makes me ask the question today: “What’s next to do?”
No matter what I do today – I still go back in my mind and past to determine at what point I de-railed so that I may get back on the tracks and ride out His purpose.
