..just do the next thing...

When I sent out an e-mail update to my friends about my closed door to Ukraine one of my friends sent me this quote in an e-mail.
"Sometimes life is so hard you can only do the next thing.
Whatever it is, just do the next thing.
God will meet you there."
Elizabeth Elliot
It has been a big encouragement. Life has been hard the past couple weeks. I have had to let go of a dream....and that has been hard. It has been hard to just give it to God and let him be in control of my life. Inspite of the hard times, I know that even though I don't know his will, I do often know what is the next thing I should be doing. It may be just going to work the next day, or helping in church on Wednesday or showing God's love to that customer who walk in the door...He will guide me..and He will sustain me.
He is enough.


  1. That actually was encouraging to me too :) I too am unsure what I'm supposed to be doing, but you are right--just keep doing the next thing and in God's timing it will be clear why :)

  2. Hey Jess!
