Radical Chapter 8 - Risk and Reward of the Radical Life
I am participating in a read-along book club, Radical by David Platt on Marla's blog.
When I was 40, I was childless.
Sadly, I thought I always would be.
13 years later...I have four children God has blessed me with.
The same Bible that holds Matt 10, also holds Titus 2 and Proverbs 31.
As a woman, as a mother, trusting, surrendering, God is leading.
This week, He lead me to peace. I have been released to contentment in Him and peace, knowing God is sovereign. Something I have not had for the past 9 weeks of reading Radical. Somewhere I lost it, forgot it, thinking I had to figure this out myself.
I am resting in his sovereignty, knowing as His lamb, willing to follow, He will lead.
Not all paths are for every person. Trusting in the Lord, He leads us on the path He has for us. And that is freeing. I do not have to figure it out. I do not have to fret. I am not afraid of the risks, with a sovereign, loving God leading me.
I have really seen, in this journey through Radical, and my journey with God, when things get tense...unclear, troubling, to turn to God in prayer and to turn to His word is always the answer.
The whole counsel of His word, quickened by the Holy Spirit will lead us where He wants us to go. (or stay).
I am once again at peace with our today and excited about our tomorrows, looking forward to seeing what God will do with a surrendered heart and our little family.
