My life has changed a lot in the past month.  I moved 1,500 miles away from a place that I called home.  I left a church that I loved pastoring at, in a community that I was beginning to understand what their needs were.  Everything was starting to get comfortable, and then God asked me if I wanted to continue my life on His path or my own. At first I didn’t understand.  I thought everything I was doing was God’s path, but I soon realized that even though I was doing things for God I wasn’t truly doing what he had called me to do. I told God I wanted to be on his path and not mine. If that meant me having to leave everything I knew and go somewhere new, I was willing to do just that.

I now find myself working in Napa, California working for Global Passion.  I never thought I would ever do work in California, yet alone live here, but when you choose God’s path for your life you never know where He will take you. The way God teaches us to trust him is not always the easiest, but when we start to trust him with the little things it becomes easier to trust him with the big things.

Being here I have had to depend on God more than ever before, but I’m reminded every day that He will never ever let me down. For instance, I didn’t have a place to live when I was moving to California, but He provided a home for me the day before I arrived. My God is bigger than any problem or need that I have, and when you start living your life on God’s path and not your own it’s not easy, and it’s definitely not comfortable, but it is worth it.  I’m glad to be where I am, and everyday there is always something new to learn.  I may not know exactly where I’m headed but, I do know that I’m on God’s path and headed toward what He has called me to do.

Until all have heard,
