My eyes grow dim with longing for you to fulfill your wonderful promise to rescue me. Lord, deal with me in loving-kindness, and teach me, your servant, to obey. Psalm 119:123-124
Recovery for me has been a time of ‘Looking and Waiting’ I have never had a problem seeing what God wanted me to do. In 1989, when I finally dealt with my pride God spoke to me. Alone in my room one night in rehab I heard the voice of Jesus say to me “You do not need to live like this anymore. Follow Me and I will lead you.”
From that day to this day that has been my recovery, He leads I follow. It has meant me continually ‘looking’ for His opportunities in my life and ‘waiting’ on His prompting on when to move on them. Trusting God is dependent on continual communication with Him.
– Do you pray?
– Do you listen to God and look for His opportunities?
Prayer: God help me today to look and listen when You speak.
