Recently I posted a Facebook status update that along with the replies that I made to the comments it received went something like this:
Learn this lesson faster than I did. When you don't know what to do, do SOMETHING. Pray, ask God to order your steps, and believe. Inaction never accomplished anything. Faith requires some action on your part. "The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he
delighteth in his way." Psalm 37:23
I'm telling you, we miss out on a lot of blessings by just waiting without powering it with some faith-based action on our part. :)
Let me add that there *are* some times when we should just stand still and wait, but it's wise to pray and ask God for discernment to know the difference.
The day after that post I received an email from one of my favorite sites, 48 Days to the Work You Love. Dan Miller wrote a blog post entitled, Pray with Your Legs that explained what I was trying to say way better than I could. I'm copying and pasting the link to his post here for you in the hopes that it helps someone along their way.
