At 16, I was a happy, small-town, country girl with a big plan  for my life. It was a good plan by most standards.

Then God called.

When God calls

He Said She Said

When He called I said, “Hello, Lord” and He began to tell me His plan.

But His plan didn’t look anything like mine. Truth be told, I’d never seen a plan like it before and wasn’t entirely sure how to follow it.

But all I had to do was say, “Yes, Lord,” and He lead the way.

My life hasn’t looked at all like I’d planned at 16 but it’s been a grand adventure.


Life is a grand adventure when you walk with God.

  1. Thanks for sharing. I am at a crossroads right now in my life. I now know that the FT job I once loved is not where I belong but I haven’t gotten clarification on exactly where I’m suppose to be. I am waiting patiently and trusting that I will know when the opportunity presents itself. I believe this season is preparing my family financially for what’s to come…

    1. Toni, I’ve been there! You are wise to wait even though sometimes that’s the hardest part of obedience. God is preparing you for what He has prepared for you! Thanks for sharing.
