I don’t know about you but I have had times that my guts were telling, do it or don’t do it and there have been times that I have listened and times I didn’t.
Those times that I’ve listened, yeah I totally should have listened. And those times I didn’t listen, well I can’t say for sure but I probably should have listened and have different a outcome.
What I do know, is that God is not surprised when I do and don’t listen. He’s not keeping score or taking notes saying ‘dang I didn’t see that coming’. This feeling is nudging me towards where I should be going.
That ‘gut’ feeling, I don’t know for sure what it is but I believe it is the Holy Spirit or my guardian Angels pointing me in the right direction. That gut feeling, is so much smarter than I am. It’s connecting the dots when I haven’t been able to even see the next one.
But I caution you and remind myself that sometimes the enemy tries to speak to us that way and it’s ok to pause and get wise counsel. Have an honest conversation with yourself and with someone you trust.
Gut, intuition, that little voice inside, no matter what you call it, it’s there. And it may invite you pause. It may tell you to run. It may ask you to do hard things, like stand up for something even if it means standing alone.
Trusting God’s will for my life means that I am willing to not only listen for, but to also take action based on a whisper.
Something that has happened to me during this pandemic, is that it has slowed me down. I have been over scheduled and overwhelmed for a long time. There has been times when my guts were not only whispering but they were screaming and I ignored it or made the choice not to listen.
And now during this quieter season, I am willing to listen for these whispers.
Stay on this ride with me, the best is yet to be.
My journey to serenity continues….
