With time, women gain weight because we accumulate so much information and wisdom in our heads, that when there is no more room, it distributes out to the rest of our bodies. So we aren't heavy, we are enormously cultured, educated, and happy.
Beginning today, when I look at my butt in the mirror, I will think, 'Good grief, look how smart I am!'
I don't understand why I can see and hear so clearly for other people when it comes to making decisions, but I can't for the life of me hear God clearly when it comes to my own. Does anyone else have that problem? If you struggle with this problem, you may be like me. I am the QUEEN of putting out "fleeces" for the Lord! (Judges 6:36-40)
I need to make a decision, not a life changing one, but it would definitely affect my family on a day to day basis. It would also change something that I am doing now...something that I believed God had given in order to pull me out of my comfort zone and teach me to be a leader. I'm just not sure if that season is over now, and it's time to move on, or if I'm supposed to stay with this until the end. On the other hand, this decision could be the answer to some of our prayers, some of our problems...I really need direction!
I know I'm not making any sense, without getting into the details. Let's just say, this is one of those times when my own desires are clouding my ability to hear God clearly. Please pray that I will hear, know, and obey the will of the Lord (not other's voices or opinions).
Thank you Lord for always giving me a verse I can run to in times like these! I am leaning on the verse in Prov. 3:6 "seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take." (New Living Translation)
