IDEAS flying through my head!!

Well I've been praying for months now on what God wants me to be doing. I know he just doesn't want me to sit on a bump on a log. So now that my bible study is over, we had our children's memorial, and God has given me peace. I'm ready to go.

I still am having a hard time hearing him. Now I am questioning: Am I hearing what I want to hear or am I hearing what He is saying to me? Our my ideas from Him or me? How can I differentiate which one it is?

So, I decided that I'm going to go where I am needed and where my heart is. (HOPE Pregnancy Care Center & worship on Wednesdays') Now I feel that He is telling me what He wants me to do. Maybe He just wanted me to stand up? I feel so good beyond what I can say. I'm excited about the plans God has for me. I know they are going to be AWESOME!! Please pray that I will hear His plan and not my own.

What do you want me to do now LORD?

What do you want me to do now LORD? Pastor Ronnie's sermon today was on what does the LORD want us to do? Are we on the LORD's team? Well,I'm ready LORD. I am ready for what ever you want me to do. I'm ready to go where you want me to go and I am ready to say what you want me to say. Since we had are Memorial I feel ready to go do what God has for me. I feel peace. I feel joy. God has truly blessed us. I am ready, LORD. I'm have been praying for an answer where He wants me. I have ideas but, I want to follow what He wants me to do rather what I want to do. I want to do His agenda, not mine. I'm so excited to get started. So keep me in your prayers and I got to go get busy. God's Peace and Joy be with you.
