Most times God has led me into something new it has been a surprise to me.
All my journey of spiritual growth people have suggested to me “you should do this.” “I think you would be good at ____________” the times I have paid attention, listened to them, and sometimes tried what they have suggested it has all gone pair shaped.
I have said many times and I believe strongly my faith has always been simple. God has opened doors. Usually doors I would never have tried to open on my own because I felt unequipped to. Doors that when He has opened them I have walked through, and in faith trusted Him to lead me in the right directions on the other side of them.
Proverbs 19:21 says “you can make plans, but the Lords purpose prevails,” To often in recovery we get ahead of where God has placed us. Plan the next step on our own, without including Him and are surprised things don’t work out the way we think they should.
We need to learn as we walk the recovery road to trust God, wait on Him and accept that if it hasn’t happened yet you are probably not ready for it.
