Just One Thing


Something big is gonna happen here in our house.  I don't know what it is, but it's coming.  This much I know.

We've been praying a lot about our future and where it will take us.  We've been trying to earnestly listen for His Voice.

Not exactly the answer I was hoping for, but clear and unmistakable. 

The thing I have been struggling with is differentiating my own thoughts from His Voice.

Maybe I haven't yet understood any more detail than that because I'm not ready.
But for now, I have my answer.

Up until now, my thoughts about the future have been mine and mine alone.  And then I want to know what will happen next, without giving anything up.  

In short, I want all the answers with none of the faith.

But that's not how it's going to work this time.  I've been given enough insight to know something is coming.  

And now I just need to work on that TRUST thing while I wait for the details to unfold.
