There will be many times when we are called to exercise or demonstrate our Faith in God. This will be proof that we understand and believe that His plan for our lives is greater than our own. So often we try to forge or merge our wants with the plan and are unwilling to accept "no" for an answer. Furthermore, his voice is so muted in our lives by busyness (trying to keep up with the Jones'), over-doing, over communicating, music, stress and worry, and our own egos/selfishness that we wouldn't hear if He did try to guide us. God will not compete for our undivided attention so that He may guide us. Set aside time with Him to recharge, seek wisdom & discernment, and His Peace. Remember that His plan is better than ours and we will be called to demonstrate our understanding of that concept through faith and being still, but we must seek Him and be willing to hear.

I began documenting #MyEarlyMorningThoughts about two years ago and have since received many requests to begin blogging and to continue posting about everyday life, growth, maturity, and christian concepts. Don't be shy, feel free to comment your life experiences and wisdom on any post.
