When we embark on something new we like to know we’re doing the right thing. Or that we’re doing it well.
We like to have a little bit of encouragement.
We like to have just few words to say we’re on the right track.
I get it. I do. I need it too.
But is it possible that some of the things we think we need the most encouragement about are the ones we get the least?
Could it be when the step is the hardest to for us to take and we aren’t getting any encouragement it’s just so we are forced to lean on God?
It’s not necessarily because we’re doing the wrong thing -that direction or conviction needs to come from God – it’s just that some decisions need to be made completely alone. Independent of anyone’s influence besides God’s.
Linking up at Lisa Jo’s today for a five minute free-write on encouragement.
