my search to understand the bigger picture

It seems God is trying to tell me something lately.....

We ask you, brothers, to respect those who labor among you and are over you in the Lord and admonish you, and to esteem them very highly in love because of their work.  Be at peace among yourselves.  And we urge you, brothers, admonish the idle, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with them all.  See that no one repays anyone evil for evil, but always seek to do good to one another and to everyone.  Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.  Do not quench the Spirit.  Do not despise prophecies, but test everything; hold fast what is good.  Abstain from every form of evil.

-I Thessalonians 5:12-22

I definitely feel God stirring something in me at the moment.  I'm not sure exactly what it is.  But love and the fruit of the Spirit are at the front of it I believe.  I'm reading through Bob Goff's book, Love Does right now (If you haven't done so, pick up a copy TODAY!) and in the chapter titled Ten-Year-Old Adventures, writes this towards the end,


How true is this?  I mean, we always want to know 100% of what God is up to before we are willing to move on it.  Today, I'm just grateful that He's working on me period.  If he chooses to only let me in on it a little bit at a time, I'm good with that.  Because I trust Him.  So, I'll go about today, doing what needs to be done.  I'll pay attention to what God's doing and saying.  I will love more, and better.
