Let me start off by introducing myself, I’m Clayton Hendrix and I would like to welcome all my readers to Flight Ministries. Let this be a quiet place where you can learn to set aside your difficulties of life and learn to fly again. A place to enjoy Gods divine plan that He set in motion just for you.
Have you ever felt like God was asking you to do something you really didn’t want to do? Something that may stretch you beyond what you think your capable? Over the last several months this has been the case for me and my family. Now, when I say God asked me to do something I don’t literally mean He spoke to me from Heaven, even though that would be awesome, I mean God speaking to me through the music I listen to, the television I watch, the people I surround myself with, and most of all my internal conscience. About six months ago I was having this feeling that we needed to move locations and get a fresh start somewhere. The first thing that came to my head was that I was just feeling bored and stuck in one place. So me and my wife started praying! I told God that if this is just me being selfish and ready for a change to have the feeling stop, but if it was Him to continue this feeling in my spirit. The feeling didn’t stop so we acted. Moving from Oklahoma City to Los Angeles was no small task but it was what we felt was right. It was the first time in my life I felt God was telling me to go and do something, but I wanted to say no. My family, friends, home, and job were in Oklahoma. I flashed back to scriptures I have read my whole life with Jesus in the garden before they took him to be crucified. How He asked God if there was any other way! Or even Jonah, when God asked him to go to Nineveh to turn the people from their sins. Jonah tried to run from what he knew was right and yet at the end God’s will came to pass. So, as hard as it was for me to move my family half way across the country, we did it because we knew it was what God wanted and that He always has a perfect plan!
We may not understand or feel adequate for the purpose God has for our lives, but in those times we need to lean on His word because it is truth. I was weak and even broken hearted to leave what I had known my whole life, but I will stand on His promise! When I am weak he is strong! I encourage you wherever you are or whatever situation you’re in, stand on his word!
