What Do You Do Next?

If you're joining me today from We Are That Family, welcome! Today I had a wonderful opportunity to share why we should say yes to God even if it means going backwards. So here I would like to share what you do now.

When God calls you to go backwards, what do you do next?

1. Pray- Lots and lots of prayer. Continue to seek God in all things.

2. Find Scripture- For us when we realized God was calling us to step back into college life we held on to this scripture: Psalm 128:1 "Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in obedience to him." Blessing follows our obedience to Him.

3. Seek council- Find some people you trust to hash out some of the details with. Ask them to pray with you, to help you figure out the next possible step.

4. Trust God- Even if the ducks aren't laid out in front of you, even if you don't see the future before your eyes. God does. He has it all in the palm of His hand. He may reveal only one step at a time, but none of it is a surprise to Him.

5. Jump- There comes a time when you know exactly the next step that needs taken, you have no more words to pray, all you need to do is just jump. God will catch you. 

May God guide you as you follow after Him, even if it means going backwards. It will be scary, but God is in control of it.


  1. Excellent advice! We are always in good hands when we are in His will and obedient. His plans for us are perfect. We just need to trust in Him. Blessings to you and yours.

  2. great advice Danielle, you and your family are a testimony of what it takes to trust God and follow the plans He has for you. Miss you all.
