Guided by the Spirit- Focus #3

Guide me in Your truth and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; I wait for You all day long. Psalm 25:5

The third focus I try to have is being guided by the spirit. I don’t believe in coincidence. But I can float about my life and realize I’m not being very intentional. And if I’m not intentional, time passes me by.

I think it’s more than being intentional though. It’s allowing God to work through me with my intentions.

I look back at different times of my life and think, “why was I so stressed out?” or “why didn’t I do this or that?” I can see I’ve lived a lot of my Christian life not trusting God and doing things my own way. I regret that. But instead of staying in the regret, it’s an area I’m trying to change.

Trusting that God is near. Trusting he has a plan. Trusting I’m included in that plan.

Sometimes I need lots of time in the morning to set my mind straight. I think about my day and what I want it to look like. I visualize how I will interact with people and how I will respond if something doesn’t go my way. And I try to make the most out of every opportunity. (Ephesians 5:16)

I wish I could say everyday went this way but it doesn’t. On the days it does happen, it’s a great sense of accomplishment. Not that I’m doing anything, but that I’m allowing God to work through me.

And that I’m not letting my life pass me by.
