I've had a lot of "nothing time" these past few months. I barely get any hours at my job so during the day I'm often home alone. These nothing times have been filled with constant face-book stalking and looking through many blogs. My prayer has been the same for a few weeks now asking the Lord to reveal himself more and more to me. He made me realize that these "nothing times" were to be spent with him. This past week I have been reading my bible and letting the worship music sink deep within my heart. I am waiting on the Lord to reveal himself to me and as a result I've been growing more. The Lord desires to share so much with us and to love on us but when we constantly consume ourselves with other pointless things we put those before God. 

I love that the Lord is patient with me as I continually re learn so many lessons. This morning I was reading Luke and I just had to stand in awe of how the disciples trusted God and how I often doubt my callings. 

Luke 22:8-13

And Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, "Go are prepare the Passover for us, so that we may eat it." They said to Him, "Where do you want us to prepare it?" And he said to them, "when you have entered the city, a man will meet you carrying a pitcher of water; follow him into the house that he enters. And you shall say to the owner of the house, "the Teacher says to you, "Where is the guest room in which I may eat the Passover with My disciples? And he will show you a large, furnished upper room; prepare it there." And they left and found everything just as He had told them; and they prepared the Passover.

I was so challenged by this passage because Peter and John just left, trusting that what the Lord had said would be true. So often I doubt. So often I feel that maybe something small wouldn't be right or I would chose the wrong man carrying a picture of water. My excuse for a while was saying "well if Jesus were actually here I would have more faith" but I am far enough in my faith to know the Holy Spirit is living inside of me and is just as present and powerful. 

What I also love is how the bible says they "found everything just as He had told them"
Yes, everything. 

I so desire to learn the faith of John and Peter and when I hear God's calling (whether reading it in his word or hearing it in my soul) to go. And to leave right away- not after checking my email or texting my friend but to just drop everything and leave knowing that God's will is always the best for my life.
