Are you trying to understand God’s will for your life? Then join me for this Intentional Conversation!
Welcome to Intentional Conversations
I started Intentional Conversations years ago. I’m not entirely sure why I let them go, but I’m excited to be bringing them back!
But y’all, life happens. I’m determined to give myself grace, but I am making it a goal to share at least one Intentional Conversation each week.
Intentional Conversations are an opportunity for me to share from my heart, answer your burning questions, and every once in a while say the things that need to be said.
What Shall I Do?
In today’s Intentional Conversation, we will be tackling the question, “What shall I do?”
Are you wondering what God is calling you to do? Are you wrestling with what the Bible says? Then this video is for you!

Notes for this Intentional Conversation:
1. What does God’s Word say?
When you’re wrestling with direction, with a prayer you’ve been praying, or with what you should be doing, how often do you turn to other people? How often do you look to other resources to help you “find direction” whether that’s a book, a noted teacher, a friend, or your husband?
Throughout the gospels, people are asking Jesus questions. Some are sincere and others are not. But if you pay attention, you’ll notice that Jesus almost always asks people what the word says (or He quotes it for them).
When we have questions – whether it’s about what we should be doing, or why the church is such a mess, or if God exists … whatever it is, we should first see what God’s Word says.
2. Do what you know God’s Word says.
This lawyer didn’t need to ask Jesus for a special interpretation of a new word. He didn’t even need Jesus’ help interpreting or understanding a difficult part of the text. He simply needed to do what the Word says.
How often do we keep praying, searching, seeking because we don’t like the first answer? We don’t like what we actually have to do.
Children are notorious for this. They ask and don’t get the answer they like and so they try to reason and ask another way.
The lawyer doesn’t like the answer, so he asks Jesus:
“But he, desiring to justify himself, said to Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”” Luke 10:29 ESV
And we’ll get into this next time, but for today: What does God’s Word say? What are you going to do about it?
