Longing For Something To Happen

Have you ever had that feeling like you are just dying for some sort of change in your life? That’s where I’m at right now. I feel like I’m on the cusp of…something. I don’t know what. I’m dying for something good to happen in my life. I long for a change—a positive one. I’m longing for something to happen.

I’ve been praying for God to use me…for whatever His purpose may be. I’m also praying for God to help me to be available and willing to do that thing. Sometimes what He wants us to do, and what we think we want to do are two very different things.

Often He calls us to do things that are either out of our comfort zone or things that we really do not want to do. If He asks me to do such a thing, I want to be willing to say, “Yes, Lord,” anyway. More than that, I want to be able to fulfill His calling with a smile on my face and joy in my heart.
