I am done driving this bus

I am sharing this because i know that a lot of you are going thru this as well.  A lot of you are just as confused as I am about “What God wants me to do”.  I read your comments and emails and all your questions.  Its hard cause the questions you ask are questions i have myself.

My life has taken some turns and for the most part it has been exciting and fun.  This part of my life isnt so much.  I am scared and confused.  How did i go from ‘what i prayed for’ to  ‘an opportunity presents itself’ to ‘hey guess what something big could be on the way’.  Its frustrating because i thought i was already at a place where God wants to use me.  But now i can be pulled to two different place…Where do i go…What do I do?  I am beginning to lose sleep over this.


After speaking with a childhood friend and my wife and asking for prayers, I am just as confused as ever.  I then had a breakthrough! I GIVE UP!!!!! I GIVE UP TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT God WANTS OUT OF ME!  I give up trying to put the pieces together.  I give up trying to “make moves” so that something will happen.   I give up and will now let God completely take control.

Whether i stay where i am, go somewhere else, do what what i am doing now, create something new with a new opportunity, or even revert back to life before 2013 and the hectic schedule of a family business…i will just “fall” into place knowing that this is what God had planned all along. -PJSLB

Merry Christmas to Asia and the Pacific and happy Christmas Eve to all

Have a blessed Christmas Eve with family and friends. If you are not with loved ones, I pray that the Holy Spirit comfort you and wrap you with love and peace.   As for me, i am blessed to be with my wife and kids.  I do not take it for granted that I have them around.  I miss my mom and dad as they are halfway around the world.  It warms my heart that they are at my fathers childhood home right now.

The Newsboys say it best.

Some negativity, frustration and angst tried entering my thoughts, but the words of encouragement from workhorseforchrist really has been helping my the past two weeks.  Adam has an amazing blog that will inspire and educate.  Please visit it.

Finally, I thank the lord for each and everyone of you who take the time to read this blog.  I pray that this blog helps you as much as it has helped strengthen my faith.  God Bless us all! -PJSLB

 

Love the blessings, hate the lessons

One of the things I really have to learn is accepting that if I want something, I have to be willing to wait for it and also be willing to go thru some rocky moments for it. It’s the “can’t have your cake and eat it too” train of thought. Came across this on the KLOVE Facebook wall. A beautiful verse from proverbs that talks about having to be willing to be disciplined in order to obtain something (like knowledge). Have a good Monday everyone! God Bless!
