Waiting

"Fleshly ambition is based on an inner motivation to prove ourselves, to gain acceptance or approval, to avoid rejection, and to maintain control.
Godly initiative, on the other hand, is the fruit of responding to revelation from God related to what He wants us to do, and then doing it in faith."

Havilah Cunnington

This was in Day 17 of a twenty day Video Bible Study she currently has posted on her site about Doing Hard Things. I have seen her in person, she is a lovely person, and a true follower of God.

It is a good study, I encourage you to check it out.

We ended our 7.5 years at a church on Sunday.
We were sent out with a blessing, and ended it properly, as in we were released.
God made it clear to step out of that boat before he would show us what's next.

So we did.

In the last few months we moved twice, almost all our belongings are in storage. We are sharing one guest room with our  fourteen year old. My daughter got married a few days after Christmas, and now moved away to Oklahoma, followed in a couple months by a move to Japan.
My other son-in-law graduated from college, and my daughter will as well at the end of this semester.

And we are waiting for what's next.

My husband's music calendar is very full, which is a God thing, because this time of year is usually devoid of gigs. I thank Him for sending us work.

And we will continue to wait.

We are involved in the school again and will be part of the spring production, we love those kids and we love doing this together. Spencer has a lead as well.

And again, we will wait.
We want our motivation to be correct.
We are waiting for revelation and doing what we are called to do.

We could easily make some choices based on self motivation right now.

But we will wait.
