A sign right about now would be great God. What is it You want me to do? I anxiously asked.
I have never been very good at multitasking, that is, if the tasks require deep concentration or are detailed focused. I am however, very good at taking on multiple tasks. This is a trait I never lost much sleep over. Finishing my personal tasks within my time frame was never a true priority; if I finished all of them great, but if not that was alright too.
My relaxed attitude toward my personal commitments changed this year when I came across a website titled “My One Word.” The website is about picking one word to inspire change in your life. My word is Finisher. I decided that I would finish the goals I had set for myself over the past two years. The problem I face is where to start and how to finish. Have you ever been here?
My second problem is that what I feel in my heart I should concentrate on at this time does not line up with what the world dictates or with my normal tendency for control over my life. I began writing a book five years ago. I was laid off from my job 8 months ago. I know I should look for a job, but writing is what is in my heart. So I decided to ask God for a sign.
Should I spend my time at this moment writing or pursuing a job? I have no idea what kind of sign to ask for Lord. Is it okay to ask You for a sign? What kind of sign I should ask for? Thank You ahead for Your guidance. In the name of Jesus, amen.
I have been praying this prayer for a few weeks. Then I saw my sign! Yes, literally, God gave me a sign. The sign in the picture above has read “Loving People, Changing the World” for as long as I can remember. I know that it is not by chance that it now reads “Live God Sized Dreams.” The funny thing to me is that, I heard but did not consciously accept this message when God was answering my prayer through different sermons and radio hosts. It was not until I saw this sign that I have truly grasped God’s answer. Now my prayer is that God will give me the courage to trust Him for my provision while I pursue my God Sized Dream!
