He is 'the how'

I am a how person.  The possibilities run endlessly through my mind as I formulate a plan.  I see a pathway that leads to a destination and envisage the journey ahead in detail.  However, when that destination is not clear, the path unsure, it is then that uncertainty gathers, clarity is blurred and the chance of standing still increases. 

I don't stand still very well at all. Today, while I am moving, I feel as though I am standing still.  There is action around me yet I know more awaits but 'the how' is blurred.   Step left, step right...I am just not sure.  So this morning over a second cup of coffee, I poured my thoughts out onto paper. 

As I write, I am reminded of the months past and what I have learnt from the challenges faced.  What I realise is that to achieve, to do, to live in God's will is not easy.  Every day there can be a challenge however with that comes growth.  I don't have all the answers and at times that road will be long, hard and blurred.  What I do know is that God is walking beside me in every step.  As I wrote my thoughts down this morning, I was reminded that God is the how.  He is the one who positions people, starts conversations, opens doors and makes a way where all seems impossible.  What I have to do is listen, be prepared to act and to faithfully follow. 

Seeking, guiding, growing...three words that rolled off the pen today. 

1.  Continue to seek His will

2.  Let Him guide my steps

3.  Grow in the challenges

For now, I continue on in the roles that He provided and placed me into.  There is never a mistake with God.  While at times, I may not appreciate the challenges, I realise that there is always a learning and it is preparing me for the next step ahead.  I don't need to know the intricate detail of 'the how',  for my role is to follow his lead.  To step out in faith and trust that He has a plan.  It is not in my strength but in His.  With this, comes reassurance, peace and excitement for the days, months and years ahead.
