Simply follow

Rest in this -- it is His business to lead, compel, send, call, or whatever you want to call it. It is your business to obey, follow, move, respond, or what have you.

-J. Elliot

"Walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him,
being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God."
Colossians 1:10

Simple obedience....that makes life so much more uncomplicated than trying to figure everything out ourselves! Praise the Lord for His promises to lead, guide, call and send!

What a beautiful post, Bethany! Your sensitive spirit to the Lord's leading is a great blessing. And as you obey that, your blog continues to encourage me. Because He always knows what we need...when we need it!

The verse you chose is extra special to me, because it is part of my Bible memory! :) You're a blessing! Love you!

Oh, I love that quote by Jim Elliot. Thanks so much for the reminder.... ah, why is it so easy to get so tied up in knots when God is in control? ;)

And what a beautiful photograph. Looks like the Platte River.
