decisions

 Yesterday I was going through my gmail account and came across several documents that my friend HannahBeth (or HB, as I like to call her) shared with me. I'd completely forgotten about them and was so excited to read through each one! The moment I started reading them I was transported back to 2 years ago when I was still living in Fort Worth, TX. I'd known for a while that change was coming, I just wasn't sure what it would be. I'd been believing for God to give me direction on what my next steps would be and I'd shared my thoughts about getting a new job or possibly moving, with HB. Later, she sent me a google doc full of scriptures that talk about being led and making the right decision. Today, as I was reading through the different scriptures, an overwhelming sense of gratitude, happiness, love and excitement rushed over me! I was reminded  that I am led by the Holy Spirit (Woohoo). That God is faithful and He has good plans for me and that He will guide me. That He has placed certain people in my life for a reason. And that friendships should not be taken for granted! 

If you're in a situation where you need direction or guidance, have no fear! The Lord is faithful and will direct your steps! I wanted to share the same scriptures, that HB shared with me! If you have a scripture or confession that you use when you need direction, please leave it below, in a comment!
