FEELING RESTLESS? IT COULD BE A SIGN FROM GOD
Are you feeling restless and longing for something more in life? It could be a sign from God telling you that it’s time to take the next step on your life’s journey. We all experience moments of restlessness and uncertainty at some point in our lives, but when these feelings become stronger than normal, it may be time to pause and pay attention.
Restlessness can come in many forms. It could be a sense of feeling out of place, discontentment with your current situation or an unexplained desire to do something new and different. Restlessness is often accompanied by an inner voice guiding you towards something more fulfilling, even if it’s not clear what that might be.
Learning to Recognise the Holy Spirit’s Voice
God has a plan for each one of us and when we pay attention to and learn to recognise the voice of the Holy Spirit in the form of that still, small, inner voice, it can be a powerful way to uncover God’s path. Listen for clues in your life that reflect what God wants you to do. Maybe something unexpected comes up or you may feel a sense of “knowing” deep within yourself that this is the right thing to do. God speaks to us in many ways and if we are willing to listen, we can discover the divine plan that He has for our lives.
Walking Through Open Doors
Knowing that feeling restless could be a sign from God also helps you take ownership of your own life journey. You don’t have to wait around for something exciting or meaningful to come to you; instead, you can take action and intentionally move in the direction of what God is nudging you towards. It could be a new job, an educational program, a volunteer opportunity or anything else that speaks to your heart despite the risks involved. When we move in obedience to His leading, it’s amazing the doors that start opening before us that were never there before.
This process of discerning God’s will and following it takes faith and trust. It may not always be easy or comfortable but it can bring greater purpose and fulfillment to your life. The journey is unique for each of us; all we have to do is be open and willing to listen.
Accept the Invitation
So if you’re feeling unusually restless and find yourself with an unexpected longing for something new, take it as an invitation from God to explore His plan for your life. Listen closely, pay attention to the signs and take action when the time is right. You never know where it might lead you! With faith and a little courage, you can set out on an exciting new path and begin a new adventure with the Holy Spirit leading you every step of the way!
