So I had the weekend off for memorial day. I’m enjoying a nice and long 4 day weekend and I come across an article in the local paper that says my employer is laying off 110 jobs. I had no idea what happened as I was off the day that everyone was informed and I spent a lot of time praying and asking God for direction. I was a bit apprehensive about my first day back to work as I wasn’t sure what was going to happen, but God really used that time for me.
I did a lot of self evaluation and I realized that I’ve made a lot of excuses over the years about this or that in regards to what I feel God’s called me to do. In not so uncertain terms I realized I’d been rebelling against God’s call on my life. Funny enough that I could do that but even sadder is that I didn’t really see it that way.
The thing is when God calls you to do something, and you don’t do or cannot do what God has called you to, then it affect your whole life. Your miserable.
Long story short, God’s really leading me toward things that are more meaningful in life then the things that are just fluff. Its a good lesson that I learned. Sometimes the worst seas of our lives bring the best revelations.
