Have you been thinking about ‘What’s your next step’? We have been A LOT here in the office. We’re having conversations, not only about what’s next for Malmo, but what’s next for us individually too. What does God have for us to do? How does He want to ‘grow’ me this year? Am I willing to step into what He has for me, even if I don’t see the details clearly yet? Or as Pastor Randall shared with me this week, “Am I willing to start moving, and in that moving He begins to make things clear…” The verse that keeps coming to my mind, is when God is speaking to Moses & the Israelites in Deuteronomy 2:2-3, as they were wandering in the desert;
“Then at last the Lord said to me, ‘You have been wandering around in this hill country long enough; turn to the north.”
As the Israelites obeyed God and ‘turned to the north’, God started making things clear and showing the way they should go, small step by small step. I, too, am feeling that it’s time ‘to turn to the north’, and step out in faith into what He has called us to. He has called each of us individually, yet when we come together, the pieces fit together like a most beautiful and intricate puzzle – and this brings God glory.
“So if we’re serious about living in the fullness of who we are in Christ, if we truly understand the value God has placed on us, we must ask ourselves;
‘What has God prepared me for?’
‘Am I living that out every day?’”
I found the above quote this past week. It has been encouraging me to continue to consider ‘What’s next’. I hope it encourages you too, as you continue to pray and make decisions about “What’s your next step”.
