Sometimes you have to jump off a cliff and build your wings on the way down. God does not call the equipped he equips the called. I love this quote:
"I loved her not for the way she danced with my angels, but for the way the sound of her name could silence my demons" ~Unknown
That still small voice, that whisper, that "gut feeling", that wave of confirmation...comes from a balance of a still mind & active heart as well as an active mind & still heart....a true inner motive of seeking out Gods will vs the will of the flesh which is in a constant battle. And ultimately a willingness and a trust that God loves you and his hand is indeed upon your life. It will turn your moments of despair into praise & your moments of joy into humble thankfulness.
"I will praise The Lord who counsels me: even at night my heart instructs me. I keep my eyes always on The Lord. With him at my right hand I will not be shaken. You make known to me the path of life. You will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand." Psalm 16:7-8,11
"The people I love, I call to account-prod and correct and guide so that they will live at their best. Up on your feet, then! About face! Run after God!" Revelation 3:19 MSG
