Listening to God


Lately, I have been lost or at least feeling lost. I’m not sure where I want to go with my life, and it’s been tough to figure it out.

When I was at church on Sunday, my priest told us a story about God coming to him, and how he chose to listen to him, and that shaped the rest of his life and brought him to Priesthood.

He then went on to saying how, in order for us to know what God’s plan is for us, we have to be willing to listen. We have to turn off the technology, pray, and listen to God and Jesus.

With my anxiety, it’s tough for me to just let go, and put my life in someone else’s hands. I like to have control. I like to know what is going to happen. However, I really don’t ever know what’s going to happen, because only God knows my plan. He’s the only one who really knows why I am going through all the ups and downs I am dealing with.

So maybe it’s time to listen to my priest, and let go& let God. My life is on the track it’s on, and while most of it is great, I’m confused about some of the things I’m dealing with. One prime example is my job. I love my job. I love being able to work from home, and I love being able to do different things during the day when I am home alone. However, the pay is very up and down, depending on the ever changing number of clients I have.

There are times that I wish I could have a real job. But maybe, this is God’s way of telling me that right now, I need to not only be working but also taking care of myself. Since I get to make my own schedule, I get to enjoy time for myself, which includes going to the gym, learning more about my faith, and getting to write& reflect on this blog!

So I’m working hard to stop being so anxious about my work situation and the other things going on in my life. I know I am not where I want to be, but I know God has a plan for me. And instead of trying to take control, I am going to choose to listen.

Until Next Time!
