  1. I could relate on so many levels. Seems that’s been a theme that keeps popping up in my face lately…how God calls the ‘unlikely candidates’ to a particular call.I’ve just been reading about Moses this week.
    Blessings to you

  2. Just what I needed to hear this morning. God is definitely speaking to me through this post. I love the fact that he hears me & answers me! When you said, “I hadn’t realized that I was serving me, not Him. I was seeking recognition and glory that was rightly His, and I was frustrated because I was not getting it,” I knew too this is what I was doing & wanting for myself. His power works best in my weakness & oh, how weak I am! I need to remember who He is…

  3. Oh my Goodness! Thank you for your transparency.Your words spoke right to me. Ouch.
    I will be praying for you on your new path/journey.

  4. I have experienced the same sort of “transition” and am just now beginning to “resolve” that the change is not my imagination. Thanks so much for sharing!

  5. Thank you, Andrea, for this insightful post! The message really resonates with me. I have been kicking around the very same thoughts in my mind & here you are, writing them down. My message from God wasn’t projected verse on a screen, they were thoughtful words posted by you!

  6. Called called me to be a mommy 8 years ago. I questioned him for over 7! Why was he asking me to sacrifice so much? I was already so beaten down from life itself. I now reap blessings I never knew because I finally listened and obeyed Him. I am saddened by all of the years lost. I never felt equipped to be a mommy-wasn’t I lacking too much? Now I see it was faith I lacked. I believed in Him, but I did not believe him. I did not see He was working thru me-not the other way around. Thank you so much for your words today-He knew I needed to hear them.

  7. Thank you THANK YOU for this…for allowing God use you in writting this piece. This is EXACTELY where I am in life right now. I’m being utterly humbled these days as I have learned that I have been serving me and not Him. Ugh! Ouch!

  8. Thank you so much for this, Andrea! It is just what I needed today. It is a painful thing to realize that we often put ourselves before God. It is the human in us that tries so hard to rely on our own devices.

  9. This is just what i needed to hear today. Thank you so much for sharing and reminding us of something so small we so easily forget. 🙂

  10. Andrea I am right there with you. Oh how he STRETCHES us all for His Glory! I pray that your able to answer His call with joy in your heart and confidence that He know all things and sees all things…including your wonderful future.
    Blessings and Grace…

  11. Andrea, I really needed to hear this today. Thank you so much for your honesty. I need to remember every day that “His grace is ALL I need…”

  12. Thank you SO much for this post! I am currently struggling with no job and some days are so hard…I know I am to keep pressing forward and not allow fear to keep me from TRUSTing in Him, for our God has a perfect plan for me and my husband. Just when I feel like I can’t go on…God tells me I can for He is with me! Thank you again!

  13. So good and true, Andrea. This encouraged me the first time I read it and it does so still. I love that your heart listens to God and asks, “What do you want me to do?” I can so relate to what you shared and your beautiful words inspire me to keep pressing in and asking that question too.

  14. Here it is 2-2-10 and I am so glad this link is still available…because I needed to hear this today. Lord take over my life and direct it where you want it ti be.
