What Does God Want You to Do?

What Does God Want You to Do?

“You have laid your hand upon me.”                                  Ps 139:5 NIV

David writes: “All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be” (v.16 NIV). God put you here for a reason, but that doesn’t mean others will understand it or agree with it. Nehemiah’s critics thought he was on an ego trip, getting the prophets to speak well of him, and only out to enrich himself. Paul’s critics called him a madman, a fool and a babbler. Christ’s adversaries said that He was controlled by a devil. Expect attack, and be ready for it! Don’t let it keep you from moving forward. Journalist Anna Quindlen, who won a Pulitzer Prize in 1992, had a dream in her heart that took her down a road others couldn‘t understand. In an address to the class of 2002 at Sarah Lawrence College, Quindlen explained: “When I quit the New York Times to be a full time mother, the voices of the world said I was nuts. When I quit the paper again to be a novelist, they said I was nuts again. But if success is not on your own terms, if it looks good to the world but does not feel good in your soul, it is not success at all.” David said, “You have laid your hand upon me.” When a dream comes from God it will seem outrageous to more than a few people. You’ll have to overcome some nay-sayers to achieve it. That’s okay. If someone tries to silence your hope or deny your progress in the course of pursuing your dream, maybe that person isn’t your friend.

I've been surfing online greater than three hours lately, yet
I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty price enough for me.

In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent
content material as you probably did, the web might be much more useful than ever before.
