When God Moves You

in Fear

I was sitting at my desk at work one day contemplating the turn of events in my life. I was working in the school system at the time and I was in transition from being fired from one job and being transferred to ¬†another. I was thinking about my last job¬†and all the struggles that I had been through. I was thinking about how I had been lied on, yelled at, belittled, stepped on, stabbed in the back, looked over, and ignored. I’ve been thrown under the bus and blamed for things I didn’t do. So when I landed in my final position in the school system I was…ok. It was peaceful there, my boss wasn’t pleasant but she’s wasn’t evil like the last one. Plus, the job was easy. I could do this job very well because it didn’t require much brainwork on my part. But, I wasn’t at peace. I knew that there was something better out there for me. I knew that I had been in this valley for six years and there was something greater than this. I was meant for something more. I couldn’t rest there because my story was not finished. I had to keep moving.

I believe that when something in your spirit makes you uncomfortable, keeps poking at you, won’t leave you alone, and it stays stirred in your spirit; it’s God moving you. When people at your job are acting crazy and things are coming against you. You come to work stressed and you go home stressed. You try to work through it because you convince yourself the job is fine. You’ve been working at this job for a long time. The job is easy, you can deal with it, you’ve gotten comfortable, you need this job because the economy is tough out there. But for some reason you just can’t shake this feeling that you need to be elsewhere. You can’t shake the feeling that you can do better than what you’re doing. You can’t shake this discomfort that you now have, this tiredness of not pursuing a dream, a passion, or goal. It’s God moving.

It doesn’t even have to be about your job. If you’re tired of being used, abused, forgotten, and disregarded by another person or people in general. You took it for so long and now you can’t. You want so badly to be with someone better but you don’t know how to move on. You’ve known this person forever, they are your friend(or use to be) or boyfriend/girlfriend or wife/husband; you have history. But you’re tired and now uncomfortable. You’ve outgrown this abusive relationship and you want more of God, more of what’s better for you out there. It keeps poking at you to move on. God is moving.

If you’re tired of being overweight or thinking that you’re unattractive or having low self esteem. You’re tired of beating yourself up about yourself. When you know that you can do better and you want to do better. When being where you are will no longer do. When you’re uncomfortable with just complaining about yourself and not doing anything about it. God is moving.

I don’t care if it doesn’t make sense. I don’t care if it’s scary. I don’t care if it’s risky. I don’t care if it will hurt you to your core. When God moves you’ve got to move too. You’ve got to move because God is calling you to a better place, a better job, a better relationship, a better confident you. You’ve got to move because you’ll remain in this rut that you’ve been in for so long and you’ll continue to just go through the motions of life. God is moving you from the place that you’re in now and preparing you for a better place. So if right now you are uncomfortable in your situation. If you feel the urge to want to do better, to be better, or to become a better you, it’s God stirring up your spirit to move. When God moves you, you’ve got to answer the call and move too. It’s time.
