Yesterday was one of those days that God confirmed for me some things. Sometimes we need confirmation and even without asking for it, God gives us confirmation.
I talked with my assistant and a colleague I respect at the school I teach at about the book I am working on. They liked the idea and the story plots.
Then in the afternoon while I was teaching my citizenship class which began yesterday, I received a message that 2 more of the women who were in my Sunday evening citizenship class this past fall passed their tests and had their ceremonies yesterday afternoon. They are now U.S. citizens. 🙂
When we start in a new direction, we step out in faith with what we believe God is calling us to do. I will never forget what a speaker said one time many years ago, “faith only works in the dark.” If we can see the path, little faith is required. It is when we step out and try something new, that the path is not always so easy to see.
So when God gives confirmation, it is such a blessing. I am thankful for God giving me little signs of confirmation yesterday.
Steps of faith are sometimes big ones like my little sister Dawn who moved to Virginia without a job lined up to be with her aging mom. Sometimes they are smaller ones.
In Psalm 119 we read:
“Your word is a lamp for my feet, alight on my path.”
The lights back then were oil pods that lit enough for one step at a time. When God guides us. he guides us step by step. Sometimes it is a big step like Dawn. Sometimes it is a small step like taking on the citizenship class for me. Sometimes it is a step in the dark like starting to write a book.
I am thankful for the confirmations God gave me yesterday. What steps do you feel you are being called to take?
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
