I’m looking for women who want to live in alignment with God's purpose and calling .
It was the last day of the Bible study before summer break. One woman shared she didn’t think she’d be back in the Fall because she felt God was wanting her to do something else but she didn’t know what. All the women in our group spoke up and urged her to come back…”oh you’ve been coming fifteen years, why would you leave?”
I was the only one who encouraged her not to come back. I was excited for her knowing it was God moving her onward, on the specific path he had for her. I’m always excited about the new things God wants to do in us and in our lives.
The following year I ran into her, and in our short conversation she shared that she'd gone back to the same Bible study, but before our brief chat ended she let out a sigh and said, “I don’t know that I’m going back though because I really believe God wants to do something else with me.” Those were the same words she spoke the year before.
Surely I believed God wanted to do something else with her and in her, but was she going to take the next step?
Has this ever happened to you? You believe God's calling you to something different but you don't know what, so you stay right where you are.
You’re not the only one. This happens to many believers. But if you keep waiting and waiting you eventually forget all about it and end up on a treadmill of activity but not the purpose and calling God specifically has for you.
Ephesians 2:10 says as God’s masterpiece, he has assigned specific things for you to do in this world.
The truth is God has so much more for you. He wants to do more in you and wants to use you in his amazing work in this world using the gifts he’s given you.
