At the beginning of November I made a huge decision. I left a company I thought I would be a part of for the rest of my life. I loved what I did, but to be honest, I hadn’t been happy in over a year. God had been gently nudging me in a different direction, but I had no idea where it would take me. In fact, up until October, I really didn’t even know He was nudging me.
It takes a village, right? Well, it took a good friend of mine to open my eyes to something new. And in the midst of it all, God used another friend of mine to remind me of what He had been saying all along. He kept saying to me, “Forget about what’s happened. Don’t keep going over old history. Be alert! Be present! I”m about to do something brand new. It’s bursting out, don’t you see it?” It was like a light bulb had exploded in my mind! There it was right there in front of me. I knew God wanted to do something new in my life. Everything He had accomplished in my life up until now had been extraordinary, but He didn’t want me to cling to it anymore.
I love His gentle reminders! He was ready to move and He wanted to know if I was ready to move with Him and cling only to Him. And now, in spite of my fear, I’m ready. He is my only source! Nothing can take the place of Him. I refuse to let go of the hem of His robe…who are you clinging to?
