Where my head is at this morning:
You will never figure out the center of God’s will for your life if you keep changing that center, never following through on what you have already once said is God’s will (seeing it through, whatever it is, no matter how hard it gets), and never recognizing that you keep saying “I know this is God’s will for me” and perhaps you shouldn’t keep saying that.
What I do know is that following Jesus and being a family member of a local church is always God’s center of His will for you—always.
What I do know is that Jesus hung and still hangs with the unclean, forgotten, marginalized, the poor, the under-resourced needy, and messy-unloved. This will always be the center of God’s will—always.
As far as I can tell, the Bible takes the guess-work out of knowing where the center of God’s will is.
