Steps in Transformation: 1

After success I feel like fleeing – especially after feeling God’s Spirit acting through me.  It scares me – fearful I will be credited and also sometimes fearful that I will be criticized. I think, “Why me?”

God, feed me with unexpected people or unexpected peace….

The still, small Voice I have learned to recognize as God’s says:

“Rest in Me. Look only to Me for approval and grounding, for I have already given you these!  Rest.  Relax.  Let go.  Allow Me to work in and through you.  Follow Me.”

A new mission: not yet revealed. There is only today’s mission.

    I like the directions given by God: “… allow Me to work in and though you. Follow Me.” And even better, what comes before: “Rest. Relax. Let go”  Its hard for us humans to “let go and let God.” We want to control and see how much we have done and can do. Peace, Frank      

  2. Wonderful !! Thanks Nancy.
