Last Thursday I read a post by Amanda over at A Brownie World which really got the ol' brain waves moving. She talked about just praying about something vs taking action in her post "Pray to be Stirred and Shaken". I couldn't stop thinking about what she said.
That hurt... that frustration... that sickening feeling inside that Amanda talked about which we all feel when it comes to certain things? I believe that is the
beginning of God trying to use us.
And that is the moment we need to be
still, be silent, and listen. Then - MOVE. Step out in obedience and
do something.Anything. Something you think of as "small" might be the
beginning of something BIG that God is going to do.
And the prayer? That should be an ongoing part of the process.
Prayer is the part that helps us see when we should move. Prayer is the part that keeps us going when we feel like giving up. Prayer is the part when we offer praise for what God is doing through our actions.
So when something stirs your soul - Be still. Be silent. And then Act! And never stop praying about it.
