You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. ~~ John 15:16
I saw this verse posted on Facebook a couple days back and i have to say… I’m in Love.
I’ve been so busy with that new job and the kids and just life, that i was loosing sight of a lot of things. I finally had a moment where i had to choose, Family or Work. I think i chose the right one. 😉 Family. I quit my job, and when my boss tried to guilt me into staying i told her i didn’t care and was leaving. But between you and me, I DID care. I felt bad for leaving my co-workers and a job that i had truly loved, but felt under new management it was sucking the life outta me!
As i was leaving that day a conversation i had had with a coworker came up in my mind of having a paper that said we had the smarts. Namely…a college degree. I started looking into online college classes and what might fit for me, with the support of my husband. Due to past poor choices my college of my choosing was not an option, but I’ve been accepted into an awesome Community College and can’t wait to start classes in January for the Spring Semester.
Now you’re probably looking at this and going…what does this have to do with that verse? Let me tell you. God CHOOSE me! He wants me to be a light unto Him…. and by finally being still and listening to Him…I feel I am FINALLY on the path that He has for me! Now that i feel like I’m finally heading in the right direction and listening to Him…i can claim this promise for me! “and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.” Ya’ll…what a sweet and awesome promise to carry in our hearts! If we are following God, TRULY following Him and His plan for us… whatever we ask. WOW!
Now don’t think this will happen right that minute, God’s not a genie… We have to remember that when we ask we still have to wait on the Lord for His timing. It can happen fast…or it can happen slowly of a period of time. This is so hard for me as I’m just like everyone else….i want it NOW! But look what God has given me over the years:
A Family, A Home, Two of my dreams (living in Texas, and a horse), A Second Chance at so many things (school, love, and church family)
I am so Blessed!
I hope you enjoyed a quick read from me,
