Ever feel like God is telling you something that doesn't make sense to the world around you? Yeah, me too. Actually, to tell the truth it doesn't usually make sense to me either! I think that is one of the beautiful things about having a relationship with God- is learning to trust Him even when you don't understand where you are headed. In fact, not being able to predict the future is usually a great indicator that you are not in control of it! What a comforting thought to know that the One who is in control has all the facts. Even better, He is working all things for our good (Romans 8:28). Martin Luther King, Jr. once said "faith is taking the first step when you can't see the whole staircase".
The video below is a perfect illustration of this. Beth Moore shares an awesome story of what she would have missed had she not listened and obeyed. I heard this story a few years ago and it has stayed with me since. A friend posted the video today and it was too good not to pass on!!
