My Journey

Oh my...  Last week a friend of mine posted on Facebook that God was throwing bricks at her.  Those weren't her exact words but the metaphor was bricks.  God guiding her, talking to her, leading her and it felt like bricks.  Well, today, I've had quite a few bricks myself. 

I guess I've been feeling like I'm being led somewhere only I can't figure out where!  Like I'm lost on this path that I'm supposed to be on but can't figure out where it's taking me.  I posted a little bit about this feeling back in January here.  I guess today, my "journey" seems to taking some form.  I think I've been receiving some guidance.  Still not sure it's right but... one thing has been leading to another and then another and then another all afternoon.

So, today, I've acted on it.  I've decided it was time to just stop thinking about things and wondering about whether or not it's just me wishing and wanting or if it's really where God is leading me.  These bricks just kept falling on me and they were all related and in perfect timing so I acted on it.  We'll see what happens with it.  We'll see if I'll follow through.

Lately, I've read that God calls us to do things that challenge us, things that make us uncomfortable.  That's hard for me.  I am really quite shy.  I don't like change, I don't like new things.  I struggle with meeting new people.  I have a very difficult time going to new places and doing things by myself!  I have a hard time going to a new restaurant without my husband!  Maybe that's why I've had such a hard time on my journey... such a hard time trying to figure out what I'm called to do... because I'm just too scared to do it. 

I don't know but at least now I've acted and have even told a friend a little about it so... I'll follow through and see where it leads me.
