Reading Sign Posts


I realize God lovingly pursues me. He has been showing me throughout my journey single word sign posts through conversations and visions. All these words I know are important, teaching me how to love, how to live and how to be free. I would like to share some single word sign post that He has shown me.

STAY: Sometimes He needs me to stay right where I am. I believe its because He’s working in me and there is no safer place than being with Him.

WAIT: I’m sure a lot of us have heard or seen this sign post before. Now more often than I like, He simply says “Wait”. I know sometimes we get impatient and we’re in a hurry, But He knows the best work takes time and He’s doing a good work inside of us, ( I try to remember He is never in a hurry).

GO: Even when I feel uncertain, confused or alone, I need to trust to “GO” believing He will make a way.

GRIEVE: There are times in life when it hurts so bad the only thing I can do is “GRIEVE”. I try not to fight it knowing my heart matters to Him and He’s healing it. So I allow myself time and space to grieve what hurts.

TRUST; This is actually something He has been telling me to do more often than not. This one I find hard to do at times with my actions and choices, even though I know in my mind I want to. Meaning- Trust: Reliance on the integrity, strength, ability, surety, etc. of a person or thing. Confidence. He is all of these. Integrity, strength, able, sure. Sometimes there is no action on my part.

BELIEVE; He whispers this one to me. Sometimes my current circumstance may make it clear that this is all I can do. To Believe, To have confidence in the truth.

PRAY: This one is a must do and yes it works. (James 5:16) ” The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.

CELEBRATE: I believe He loves a good party, He gave us joy because He knows we need it, He is a God of joy. We have permission to find something worth celebrating. So lets hit the pause button on the drama in our life and just celebrate.
