When God Gets Your Attention

Have you ever had those moments in life where God whispered to your heart and called you into something that scared you?

I’m there right now.

I feel God putting it on my heart to step out in faith to pursue writing more diligently. But it’s terrifying. As a mom of young kids who are not in school yet, I don’t have huge chunks of time in my day where they are not around. And when they’re napping or in someone else’s care, I’m working on my other part time jobs from home to help make ends meet financially.

I have a lot on my plate, but I know God is calling me to something bigger than what I see right in front of me.

It’s terrifying because it means sacrificing something I know to step into something I can’t fully see.

But isn’t that what faith is?

Over the past weeks and months I’ve been writing down little snippets that God speaks to my heart to share as encouragement to others.

As I was looking over them, I stopped in my tracks. My own words were being used by God to get my attention. I love when that happens because my own words transform my own heart before they touch anyone else’s. That’s why I write.

Maybe you need to hear them as well:

“When God places something on your heart, he is giving you an opportunity to display faith to see it through. Will you?”

“When God places a burden on your heart, he will equip you with the skills and resources to make it possible to accomplish.”

“I will not merely exist in life. God has a plan and purpose for me to fulfill.”

“Fear is the devil’s way of making us forget that God’s plan is much bigger than our understanding.”

Don’t let the devil win. He wants to keep us from fulfilling God’s plan for our lives. I certainly don’t want that for my own life. God has a plan and a purpose. No matter the cost, following Him is going to bring more fulfillment than stubbornly staying my course.

What is it that God’s calling you to do?

What’s stirring in your heart?

Let’s join each other to be an encouragement during times of doubt and frustration. You are no alone.

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,” (Ephesians 3:20)
