Seeking God's Direction

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 2:36 AM

Okay, so I'm dense. One problem I have in seeking God's direction is that God often seems to open up a door, but I don't know where to go once I'm in that door. Today was one of those days. Two different things I have prayed about what to do on started to be resolved today (within a few hours of each other, in fact!). But, I emphasize they started to be resolved. Going back to how I mentioned I'm somewhat dense at times, I haven't figured out if this means I should try to jump in with both feet and move forward or if I'm suppose to take a more passive role and watch what happens. I'd lean toward the former, but first I think I need to consider what's happening a bit more.

For now, I won't worry about that, though. I know I have been seeing God at work and I'm just thankful to see what He has done today. Presuming it is His will for things to move forward, I hope to be able to post about both events in detail soon. If not, I'm still sure I will in do time, because while I may question this later, while the experiences are fresh, I know these were not just coincidences.

Ya Tim, what you said.

In similar boat. I just keep praying for wisdome and discernment. I used to be the rush in type, but I’ve become more responsive (or passive). I just realize that I’m here now, so here is where I’ll spend my energies.

I’ve become consciously cautious, yet by nature I’ll dive right into what seems right at the time. This is most pronounced in giving my things away to others. Only one gift in thousands haunts me with a tinge of regret. It’s the decisions I take to move into this or that where I am most cautious. That’s because there are lots of regrets there.

Jason: that’s a good point.

Ed: That’s very true… that’s sort of what I fear about jumping in.
