Stay or Go

There have been times in my life when God has clearly said stay and others that He has clearly said go. In both instances, I have followed God’s voice.

A series of events have happened at my workplace. I resigned a week ago today. It had nothing to do with money. It was more about changes that were happening against the standards of the company I work for. Although it was my plan to leave, God put things into motion that have caused a paradigm change in me and the situation around me. He clearly said stay. His plan was a good one.

As for go… Several months ago we left the church we had been part of for more than 20 years. It was a very hard decision and caused many tears. We knew people would not understand. We choose to not broadcast the reason because it would simply make another person look bad. Again, God’s plan was clearly a good one.  

I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD. Plans to prosper and not harm. Plans to give hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11 

Each Friday I receive a prompt and write out my thoughts for 5 minutes.  Today’s post is for that reason.  Come on over and join me at 5-Minute Friday.

Blessings to you and yours!

  2. God said, “Stay!”, God called, “Go!”
    God sighed, “Roll the dice,
    ’cause, hey, My man, I don’t know,
    but Key West might be nice.”
    God yelled, “Right!”, God cried, “Left!”
    then bellowed “Just stand still!”
    For me His Ages’ Rock is cleft,
    and rolling down a hill.
    The journey is the destination,
    the road-trip is the goal;
    the pilgrimage its own salvation,
    so let’s pour on the coal
    and show the Lord we do not scare
    and follow Him just anywhere.
