The One on God's Will

When I was a baby Christian, I thought I had life completely figured out. God was not a complex being - just a loving Lord. God's will was simple, easy to know and figure out. More recently, I've struggled with almost every decision I've made. I constantly question - Is this God saying what He wants? Or is this Satan trying to get me to do something against His will? Or is it just me wanting to satisfy my own desires?

And so in the next few weeks, I have to make another decision - where is God taking me to do ministry with Young Life? Arlington Heights in Chicago or West Plano in Dallas? Or should I stay right where I am in Colorado Springs at the Service Center? I know that God speaks in a gentle whisper - but sometimes I pray that He would just write it in the sky or send me an email.

I suppose too that if we are willing to listen and pray that He will reveal His will - that in fact He let ya know. That also takes trust and faith that He knows better than me. Sometimes, you just don't want to accept that.

Someone once told me that as long as I am seeking Him in my walk and faithfully drawing closer to Him, no matter where I end up, God will bless it. But doesn't He has a certain path for our lives?
