Day 4: Believing God (Chapter Four)
What have you been called by God to do? Take a few minutes away from work and family to sit with your Bible and talk to God. Believe that God placed your dreams and passions in your heart. Find a verse that speaks to you about this, and post it today on your blog.
I have actually spent a lot of time pondering this lately.
My mom tells me God has gifted me with an amazing ability to write. My kids tell me they’re blessed to have me as a mom. My mom and my kids tell me I’m doing exactly what God wants me to do by home-schooling.
I feel compelled to write. I feel compelled home-school. I am a mom (I don’t believe that is a calling – it’s a gift) But I also try to listen daily to God’s voice (through the spirit). I haven’t always been the best at listening and I haven’t always obeyed even when I have heard but I am trying daily now to do both.
I am blessed to have such an amazing family! They encourage me and they work alongside me to get closer to God.
My son is a prophet (spiritual gift) and he never hesitates to let me know when I need to work on something (IN LOVE) and he is the first one I go to when I’m not sure which side of the line a book or a movie falls. He’s very quick to tell me whether it’s appropriate or not.
