Trust Where God Has You

When we seek to learn the most we can from what’s in front of us, the more insight we are given for the next stage of life. (tweet this!)

I’ve noticed this a lot in my life over the past year and a half. When I really try to enjoy and seek out the answers that are being given to me in my “now,” all of a sudden, something of even greater worth (information, ideas, innovations, etc.) seem to just flood in.

Once I start focusing on those and getting what I can out of them, even more comes rushing into my head.

When I start to feel overwhelmed by God’s grace and goodness to me in showing me these cool things, I tend to take a step back to see the larger picture.

Without fail, every time, in every thing He leads me to next, something MUST have come before it.

A video.

A note.

An idea.

A thought.

Something. Something that gets my mind and creativity going. Something that speaks to me in some way.

I realized what He’s doing is laying a foundation. He’s giving me bits and pieces of things to learn at a time which will inevitably have something built on it down the road.

When I pick up books now, I find a familiar thread in them… something I’ve heard or seen before.

When I listen to a new video or audio, or even read a blog post, there is a silver lining that runs through it that I have been exposed to before. It may not all be that way, but it seems to be happening more and more.

I’ve learned that the silver lining has had to come to me in a certain order, in stages, for me to be open to receiving more. Once I “get it” at one level, He reveals the next, and then the next, and then the next.

Amazing.

What an incredible God we serve. Not only is He leading us, but He really wants us to get it, grasp hold of it, and dive deep into His purpose for us.

We merely need to show up to be of service and to learn as much as we can. (tweet this, too!)

When we are open to all He has to offer, He keeps offering more and more. It’s truly incredible to witness and experience.

I encourage you today to seek what He’s trying to teach you at this stage in your life. What can you learn? What can you seek more information on that will help in lots of areas of your life? How can you alter your attitude to reflect one of gratitude and willingness to enjoy this stage of your life? Share your thoughts. I love reading them!

  1. Whatever the lesson we are to learn next, the tools will be provided in the most amazing form. And if one doesn’t work, another will appear. And another. And another. Some call it synchronicity … others call it God. But whatever name is given to it, it’s “magical” as Susan says …

  2. We must be open and looking for signs from God. I have found that it is something I need to always be aware of and need to ask him to show me the next step or else I can be so busy that it just passes me by. Great reminder!

    1. Yes, we all need to be reminded often to keep an eye and ear out for what God is trying to show us. I certainly haven’t “arrived” and do this all of the time, but as He shows me more and more how His plan fits together, I’m becoming more aware of it. The busyness tries to creep in on all of us, Sue. lol

  3. It makes for a “magical life” as I call it… so exciting, even in the dark days, to know that God’s little surprises are around every corner. I think that we notice these things especially in the darkness, under the ground, where like a seed we are soaking up every nutrient and pushing toward the Light.

    I’m happy for you, Jessica, knowing that you’re one of God’s finest and He’s entrusted you with much!

  4. I quite agree, God lays foundations for the next steps for us. He then gently guides us the direction needed to develop us further. To me it is like an already solved jigsaw puzzle coming neatly together. We just need to trust in Him, to seek Him and let Him direct our paths.
    This song comes to mind: Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus….
