The crowds pressed him. The noise deafened him. He knew He shouldn’t leave them alone, but He was weary. Hungry even, and unsure of what to do next. He needed guidance….clear direction….to hear, and to be heard.
So He went to His Father…in prayer.
“Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed.
And Simon and those who were with Him searched for Him. When they found Him, they said to Him, “Everyone is looking for You.” But He said to them, “Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also, because for this purpose I have come forth.” Mark 1: 35-38
Jesus didn’t do what everyone thought He should be doing. He did what His Father desired to be done. And Jesus knew what that was because…..He asked Him…..in prayer.
I’ve felt pressed myself lately, the noise of this life deafening me at times to the point that I don’t clearly know what steps to take next. Following Jesus’s example, I pray. I seek guidance and clear direction. And I receive just that, when I ask in faith believing I will get an answer….in His timing, not mine!
With that prayer has come a decision regarding Burlap & Lace. One that I want to share with you because you have journeyed with me thus far. But you have to stay tuned….to see what is coming next! Until the next blog….
