March 4 = March Forth!

I heard the date today, and it struck me.  Today is not only the 4th of March (already!), but if said in the correct way, it's an order!  March forth!  Move on!  Go forward!

So......what does that mean?  What does it mean to you? 

I went to a really neat talk last night at the Coffee Shop in New Bremen (love that place!).  I took my friend, Alicia, and we had a nice time chatting over dinner (great lasagna plus a terrific salad that my mouth is still watering over!), and then were treated to a wonderful speaker.  She was an inspirational speaker and spoke on "Blooming Where You are Planted."  Very entertaining, and very enlightening.  I love it when someone makes me think like that.

We talked about life's goals and whether we were doing what we wanted to do or not.  If not, how could we make them happen?

I got out my pen and paper (as if I was going to take notes!  LOL), and copied down one thing.....Ephesians 2:10 (I know it, I seem to have a real bible fetish lately!).  Here's what that passage says:

For we are his handiwork, created in Christ Jesus for the good works that God has prepared in advance, that we should live in them.

Wow, did that get me thinking!  LOL  We are created in Christ Jesus (yes, I knew that) for the good works that God has created in advance ---- hmmmmm.......this is where I always get stuck.  How the heck do we know and/or figure out what this is???  And then I'm supposed to live in it?  Yikes!!!

I wear many hats in my life -- wife, mother, sister, friend, ccd teacher, insurance agent, 4-H advisor.....the list could go on......and each one of those is something I LOVE to do!  And I feel drawn to each of them.

So, I asked myself last night (and maybe even a couple of times today!) -- is that what I'm supposed to be doing?  I guess time will tell.  Eventually, God always seems to reveal Himself (and His intentions), sometimes when we least expect it.  I figure if I don't hear Him saying those are the wrong things, that I will continue on.  LOL

I do know that I heard Him telling me for a long time to write this, and I resisted.  I've heard a few other things from Him as well, but am not quite ready to reveal them just yet.  For now, I'm moving forward with this because I heard it long enough that I knew it was what I was supposed to do.

So, what about you?  What are you hearing?  Is God telling you that what you are doing is right, or not?

Let's March forth to March fifth!
