Being Specific

It's been a couple of days since my last entry. A lot has been on my mind and heart. We still don't have an answer, but I'm believing and praying for an answer by the end of the week. I was reading in my book again, continuing my Magnificent Obsession, when it came to a part about God's will and how to seek it. She was like.. "have you prayed and read your bible and still don't know what to do?" I'm like... "YESSSS!!" So, she went on to give 4 "runway lights" that she goes by to know if she is in the will of God. They are as follows:
  • practical circumstances
  • the counsel of mature, godly people
  • inner conviction
  • the confirmation of God's word
So, when all these lights begin to line up then she knows she's in the will of God! So.... me and Charlie's inner conviction light has been on for some time. So, I believe what we are feeling is correct according to God's will. Anne went on to talk about a decision she was trying to make and wasn't really hearing from God and how she began to pray VERY specific.

So, Charlie and I have agreed to pray this week for an answer by the end of this week. A word, a song, something we see or hear or read. Anything that says, "yes.. you stay" or "no.. you go" Then we will know what to do and how to go from there. I'm really excited and have felt better this week. Nothing yet, but it's only Wednesday and I know the Lord will reveal His will for us. We just want to get it right!

Dear Heavenly Father
I come to you again in request for a confirmed answer, confirmation about what we are supposed to do. We need to know beyond a shadow of a doubt that we need to leave or stay. We need to know what your will is for this family. I pray for a specific answer. A "yes go" or "yes stay" by the end of the week. Give us a word, a sign that we may know how to continue on this journey. I thank you for your love and caring for us.
