This meme really jumped out at me when i read it. I quit full time employment to follow God's will for life 7 months ago. I expected a sudden turn of fortune when i started walking the path God intened. suddenly, i would be riding rainbow colored unicorns across beautiful beaches while playing the ukulele and leading people to Christ. It didn't happen.
God never promises us ease when we walk his path, but he does promise us strength for the journey. My problems didn't vanish when i decided to follow His will, but they did lessen.
I was forced to use that elusive gift of the spirit, self-control. It has been a struggle, but, with God, I have the strength to get through it.
Learning to cling to him means letting go of my comfort levels. Releasing more of myself as I gain more of him. Has it been hard? Yes! Has it been worth it? Bigger Yes!
I am a Christian, a wife, a mom, and a part-time basket case who wants to be a full time writer.
