I want to focus on how God plans to use me for throughout my life. I feel like an abiding participant in what life is expected to be- go to college, get a job, etc. but I want to be more--do more. What does that mean for me?
Some takeaways that resonated with me are:
- Live every day listening for God. Actively waiting means seeking God in your every day life not passively waiting for God to show up.
- Expect God to come through knowing, believing, and trusting that he will provide. Do not confuse expecting with demanding--looking to your own plan and seeking God to give you your plan on your time.
So for 2016 all I know right now is that I want to spend time seeking God and strengthening my relationship with Him. Where will this year take me? I don't know, but I know I can find my what through Him.
Even youths grow tired and weary; and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not be faint.
