1000 Reasons Why

Have you ever had a moment when you felt this strong desire or pull to do something? You get this surge of passion and fire towards something but when you take the time to think about it you get bombarded with questions of "how will I do this? Do I have what it takes?" Shortly after we are followed bu doubts. We don't feel worthy, we don't feel we have the proper knowledge or skills. We are so good at finding the 1000 reasons why we shouldn't or can't do something, but forget that one reason that brought this spark in our heart in the first place. Anyone able to relate? I have a feeling all of us have had that moment at some point in our lives. Maybe some of us had the courage to follow that desire, but maybe some of us didn't. More and more I am realizing that everything that God has placed in our hearts, whether it's a desire, a talent or a skill...it is there for a reason. It is there because God wants us to use it for His Glory! He wants us to use it to bring His love into the world. Sometimes that step can be small, but sometimes it can be big. For me...it was a big as changing my career from Massage Therapy to Ministry. Have I been challenged more? YES! Have I suffered pay cuts? YES! Have I been brought to my limits? YES! Would I go back and change it? ABSOLUTELY NOT! My time working in ministry, and my decision to pursue my Masters Degree in this field has forced me to grow and has pruned me in ways I never imagined. But the craziest part of all is anytime I felt like I was not equipped for something, or I couldn't handle a situation the Holy Spirit always came in and completely took over. What is that spark in your life? What is that pull, that desire that is growing in your heart? Where do you feel God is calling you to use your gifts and talents? Will you follow that call and go on an adventure to discover it with Him? It won't be easy...but I guarantee that it will be sanctifying and fruitful in ways you never thought!
