God Goes Ahead of You

Deuteronomy 31:8 “The LORD is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.”
Have you ever felt God calling you somewhere or to something, but you just can’t wrap your mind around how it will ever work? It seems so hard to take that step of faith?
This was me a couple of years ago, I didn’t know how God would come through in my life and it seemed that all the odds were stacked up against me. I was in a major crossroad in my life both personally and spiritually. I knew that I was called to Tyrone so I applied for teaching positions in the area. Every door closed. Every interview went sour and here I was in the summer of 2009, knowing I was called to Tyrone, but no means of income to support myself to live there. If you know me, the way I operate is strictly by numbers (Go figure I am a math teacher).
God Will Surprise!

I still remember the day I got saved. I was in my therapist’s office earlier that day. I had been going there for a few years. It started out as marriage counseling but at this point in my life my ex-husband had already walked out on therapy and I was going alone. I had repaired a lot in me at this point and my life was getting better, even though I was in the midst of separation, heading for divorce.
My therapist talked to me that day about my empty spaces. What did I have at the end of the day when I wasn’t working and going 100 miles per hour raising two kids and taking care of a house on my own? When it came down to just me, being still, what did I have?
My therapist is a Christian and up until now she had never been so bold about Christ as she was this day. She simply said to me, “you need Jesus.”
