One year ago, I made a change in my life. I felt God’s calling and tried to reason my way out of the change, but in the end, I followed God. Just one change. At the time, I had no idea what the road ahead of me looked like or what was waiting along the way. I just said yes to God and took that one step.
I will not say that change was easy because it was not. I was out of the environment where I was comfortable. Things were different, I was uncomfortable. Some days were harder than others, but I knew that this was the path that God had for me, so I kept moving forward.
I was determined to stick to God’s plan. I tripped over a few stumbling blocks that were tossed into my path, but I did not stay down, I got back up and kept walking the path. Then, one change after another happened. Then another and another. Blessing after blessing.
I look back over this year and see the difference that one choice made. I have met some amazing people. I have had great adventures. I have experienced loss and sadness.
I am not the person I was a year ago. My relationship with God is so much better than it was a year ago. My heart is fuller than it was a year ago.
I still have a journey to walk with the Lord. He is still taking me to uncomfortable places, and I do not know what lies ahead, but He does.
God is waiting for you to take that step of faith for Him. It might seem impossible at the time, but He makes a way where there is no way. All you have to do is trust Him and take that first step.
Today is a good day for change.
