Author: Rebecca Barlow Jordan: In the past, I usually divided my new goals into categories each year: Home, Personal, Marriage and Family, Spiritual Growth, to name a few. But several years ago when my husband retired, something changed. I wanted to accomplish things for Jesus but, I had left my workaholic drive behind. I enjoyed all of life and it’s activities but my goals and lists had already shrunk in recent years. Still the conflict between complex and simple, good and best, battled at times . I wanted to spend more time with my husband during his retirement, yet still fulfill God’s personal calling on my life.
So I began asking Jesus more intentionally ::What were His plans for me?..Did it really manner what I did as long as I tried to honor Him? Was there something I need to start? Complete? How could I find the right balance in my life? I needed- wanted- answers. I wanted to hear a personal word from Jesus.
Jess often answers with principles in His Word, rather then specific instructions with principles in His Word, rather than specific inspirations use the power of choice and discernment. But within days of my prayer, He directed my eyes toward a Scripture verse that had my name on it.One that-promised He would reach me what was best for me…and direct me in the way I should go. And Jesus has been faithful to do that.
