Say yes and then watch...
"We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose."
One thing I'm learning, slowly, as I progress along on my journey, is that when God calls us to do something, God also gives us what we need to do it. We may feel a tug to do something out of our comfort zone. We may be asked to do something we've never done before and may not be within our skill set. Or, like me, we may daily be faced with a calendar of appointments and each one is a challenge! And, just like Mary, we can answer the call, tug, and face the calendar with faith and trust that God will help us meet the challenge. I think the first thing we need to do is admit that we actually need God's help. And then we need to be open to watching God work. God may not do things exactly as we do, so things may play out differently than we expect. Later, we can look back and be amazed at what God has accomplished through our unwitting selves! Today, let's step out in faith, ready to watch God work through our day. Love, heidi
