Overhaul Your Life
How many times have you said to God, "Ok, I'm ready for your plan for my life" ? It was most likely said in a time of despair when your plans, that you made on your own, didn't work out.
(Am I right or am I right?!)
Believe me, I've done it too. I've prayed that prayer that so many times in my darkest hours because I was just SO done with this life. However, I've also said those words when I felt lost and confused. Word of advice, DO NOT ask God to take away or give you anything so that you can do His will, unless you are prepared for the consequences. I know from experience. Let me tell you it was a freakin' doozy. It was my senior year of College, my fiancee left me, I had to move back in with my parents and I totaled my car. All that happened in 4 months! Talk about moving mountains!
I say this as a word of caution. If you think you're at a low point and need God to save you, you're right. But the thing is you needed Him waayyyy before that. I have this theory (which I could be totally wrong) that if you are actively seeking a relationship with Him and do love God before you cry out for his overhaul, that He will make small moves first. If you are open an seeking Him then you will see these small signs or changes in everyday life. At the time of my overhaul I was not nearly as deep with my walk in Christ as I am now. I see small changes and hear his voice more frequently. He knows I am sensitive so small signs are the best for me.
I wonder how God is speaking to you? Do you need a small change or large? I would love to hear all about it in the comments below or reach out to me on social media.
