737 - Left standing alone in His will

Feel left out?  Not invited to the party?  Left wondering when God was going to choose you?
Now that is a lovely picture!!!!  holy cow!  Love yall --  let me hear from you!  

1) Have you ever felt this way?
2) When?
3) How long were you there?
4) What did it take to get you to a new place?

This was my first time watching your vlog! Very encouraging.
I still feel that I'm not invited to the party sometimes. Even when I am amongst a group of my Christian peers I'm on the outside looking in.
It gets lonely sometimes, but then I realize that I DO have something do rejoice about..and that is being in God's will.

What a great encouragement today, Leigh. Thank you.
I certainly know what it feels like to be on the outside. But when we are with God, and in His will, inside or out really shouldn't matter, should it? (Easy to say. Not always so easy to live!)
I am just about to start reading about Joshua. Looking forward to it!

I have been there several times in my life... I don't think I am there now, but it is easy for me to cycle in and out of this feeling if I don't keep my eyes on Jesus...

Love ya, and maybe I will try to get to the conference you are sponsoring :)

Wow Leigh, I really needed to hear this today. When you were talking about the priests and them standing in the Jordan, God reminded me that 1) the Ark of the Covenent was not a light thing. 2) there were an estimated 2 to 3 million people that had to cross over along with all of their possesions. 3) this was an all day and into the evening thing. And still they stood, because that is what God had commanded them to do. And like you said, they probably would have liked to have been at the "party", but without them doing what they were called to do, there would not have been a party. I think we feel left out sometimes because we forget the value of what we do, especially if it's a behind the scenes job, like a prayer warrior. I know that at times I have felt very left out, yet knew what I was called to do was totally in the will of God.

This is a comment on an older post because I have just found your blog. Very good points but I have one comment. I have been going through a period when I am learning that the words that we speak over ourselves and others are very powerful. Therefore, it really hit me when you commented that your hip was "killing you". May I suggest that it is causing you pain and suffering but not killing you.
I am trying to stop myself from saying things in this ilk.
