The Rest of Your (My!) Story - 21 Day Challenge hosted by heart to heart with holly
A. At first I didn't really think this question applied to me at this point - but then it dawned on me, even if we're exactly where we want to be in life, we're always waiting...wondering What does God have in store for me next?! As best we can, we use what little we know for sure to plan & prepare for what we know nothing about - aka what the future holds.
I've waited at times ... to see how on earth God would use "this" for good * for some inkling of direction regarding what to do & where to go from here * for an answer to a question or a prayer * and for something/someone my heart longed for.
In the waiting, I've found that - even if I'm not sure what to do, it helps to do something(!) - anything that qualifies as something good, because quite frankly, "doing nothing" contradicts how and why we were created...
(designed) to do good works.
Idleness is the parent of psychology.
- Nietche -
created in Christ Jesus to do good works,
which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Therefore, I urge you brothers, in view of God's mercy,
to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God
- this is your spiritual act of worship. 2Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
Romans 12:1 & 2
...and I can't help but wonder if that (worship!) is precisely what God is waiting for us to do when He makes us wait? It sure sounds to me like something He would do (based on HIStory) - which is why it seems to me that assuming ...whatever you do, [you] do it all for the glory of God (I Corinthians 10:31b), even when you don't know what to do....you can't go wrong if you do something - while you're waiting.
