Good evening beautiful humans.
Can we be transparent for a minute? Who has felt a calling on your life? Have you felt a sense like God has these plans for your life? Have you been too afraid of what these may cost you to fully follow these plans?
If you answered yes to any or all of the above questions I want you to know you are not alone. At all. If we are seeking after Gods heart completely we have experienced a calling on our lives for our present and for our futures. You may be called to leave everything behind to pursue a life serving God over seas as a missionary. You may feel led to go back to school to get a degree in nursing. Or perhaps you know God has a plan for you to be in church ministry. Whatever the calling, a beautiful God has given it to you.
If you know what its like to experience a God calling you also know the absolute fear that may come with it. If you choose to follow Gods plans you may have to risk some things. You may have to leave family behind to travel to a remote village. You may have to sacrifice friends that are only holding you back. You may have to quit your part time job to become a full time student. No matter what fears creep in I want you to remember God has His hand on your life. He sees your fears. He knows your anxiety.
He has called us all to leave things/people behind in our walk with Him. To step out of our comfort zones and risk it all for the sake of His plans. It is terrifying. It is exhausting. It is also beautiful and it is fulfilling. Rest assured in His love for you and know He will guide your steps if you let Him.
Keep pursuing His plans and your faith in Him will only be made stronger in the end.
At this very moment I want to encourage you to take out a piece of paper. Or if you have your bible near by that is great too. Wherever you have space I want to encourage you to write the letters AAA. This stands for Any thing, Any time, and Any where. After you have written that I again want to encourage you to sign it and date it. This is your promise to God that no matter His plans you are all in. Any thing, any time, any where.
If you made the card/wrote in your bible with AAA I would love if you would tag me on instagram @leahjbailey and use the hashtag AAA so I can be praying for you as you take this step forward with God. Or if you want to keep it solely between you and God that is great too!
XOXO Stay pursuing
