I love CHRISTMAS! and when I say love that is an understatement. CHRISTMAS to me is one of my favourite things EVER!!! I can tell you (on most days) how many days there is till Christmas, like today is 121 days… So when it came time to sell all my Christmas stuff on this journey of selling pretty much everything I own I felt sad, hesitant, and it was really hard to bring myself to list it. It was actually the last thing I listed out of every thing I own. I even sold my bed before I sold my Christmas stuff lol. I have probably spent thousands of dollars on my Christmas decor.
But I knew there was no turning back and I listed it and 100 inquiries later I realized I wasn’t the only one that loved Christmas.
Then I asked myself what does it mean to be obedient? Even though it was hard to list my stuff I knew that it was fear of giving up the things I love, the things that I am familiar with, and going into the unknown. Ultimately it came down to trust. I had to trust that this was my path. Proverbs 3:5-6 says “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”. The plan God had for my life was bigger then I could ever imagine, but I needed to submit to him to make my path straight and allow him to lead me to what he has in store for me. I think about how my life was before I gave my life to God, I think about the feeling I had of always having to be in control of everything, and having so much anxiety not knowing what was to come, but now I know that God is in the drivers seat of my life and he will not lead me astray. “Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” Isaiah 30:21
And I trust that God will lead the way.
