Proverbs 2:20 (MSG)
So--join the company of good men and women, keep your feet on the tried~and~true paths.
Our Pastor frequently says (I'm paraphrasing...but I think I'm close), "If you aren't sure what to do...just look around...see where God is at work and join in." But, in my mind I say, "Are you sure? Just like that? What if it's not my 'calling'? What if it's not my 'purpose'"?
I am embarrassed to admit this, but I struggle with over analyzing things sometimes. For those of you that know me...you would say, "Ya think!!?" (Ha...literally...get it..."Ya think...anyway..I digress..) I always tell my kids that sometimes those things that are our biggest gifts can be our worst enemy. In this case, I love to ponder and reflect on life...which is why I am writing a blog (a good thing), but the negative part comes when I don't get inolved in something, because it might not be the perfect~ultimate design for my life.
Rather than "join the company of good men and women" and get to work on the jobs that are in front of me, I have a tendency to evaluate into a paralyzed state. This behavior renders me ineffective and wasting my potential gifts....right? I am praying today to keep moving on the tried~and~true path!
