Yes, ask Him. From some of us, God expects total eyes, attention on Him. And I really believe that this goes for every true believer. It's just that some believers are more obedient than others. The more humble you are down here the more honored you will be in heaven. True humility is total dependence upon God. You cannot be too humble for God.

there is no way others knows the will of God for your life. You must pray and ask God to reveal what He has for you to do.

How good Rebecca that you are called upon to sing. I wish we could hear you.
How long, moderator, do you think it will be before we can talk and sing to each other through web-sites like this?
Moderator - A while because most people can't create or access such large files.

It is clear simple and easy........."love mercy do justly and walk humbly with thy God." Micah 6:8
All else flows out of that. Love the lord thy God with all thy heart mind and strength and love thy neighbor as thyself.
You are in Christ and He is in you there fore you are in His will. Wake each day and say Father what would you have me to do to show You to others.
He is not going to give you a so many steps road map to his perfect will

if you have a close relationship with the lord, then this is the first step you will encounter with satan. while gods plan for us is an abundance of life, satan's plan is only to crush us so that we may not have the strength and desire to come close to the lord. i suggest every morning you surrender your day to the lord and ask him to give you the grace just for that day to solve your problems' dont concern yourself with what the world is doing.

Jesus suffered for Us that we might have a new life in Him. Suffering for our faith in an awesome Lord God is part of being a true Christian. "We are go forth in the Lord's Light, carrying the banner of truth to all the world" those who do this are going to suffer, for the ole' devil hates those who are not afraid of carrying the banner of truth. Jesus, says we are to take up our cross and follow Him, but when you do, remember that it can be a rocky road.

I'll tell you what God wants for your life.
He wants people to look at you and see Jesus.
That my friend is the bottom line for us all.
You say trials, read Phil 3:10.
Many see the part of the power of His resurrection but they miss the fellowship of His sufferings. You can't be Christ like without them.

Worldliness in other Christians: you're not called upon to pick up and carry other people's crosses or judge them.
Ever read THE SCREWTAPE LETTERS by C. S. Lewis? He says that it's your PRESENT confusion and uncertainty that's your REAL trial. It's easy to think about all sorts of things happening to you--most of them unplesant--but it's impossible for them to all happen! It's the uncertainty you're expected to bear, and you pray "Thy will be done"--and He will give strength to bear it.

We are called to pick up our Cross & follow him sounds easy enough, if HE wants more He will direct you,The trials, are your crosses, the worldly things could be necessities, if you find them a hinderance avoid them, the choice is yours.Love your neighbor as yourself.Seek God in what ever you do Amen,There are many others but these are fundamental starters

Ask him. God has a calling for each of his children (born again believers). I am called to sing, I sing with my heart, I sing to God. God will surely let you know what it is for you to do, all you have to do is ask.

Trials we go through strengthen our faith & show God we wont curse him when things go wrong look @ Joseph. satan trys to make you falter by tempting/troubling you Look @ Job. As 4 worldly things in church, they'll have Jesus to deal with, be sure that you aren't part of these things so that you wont fall from Gods grace, even if it means leaving. Bible says there are many wolves in sheeps clothing, if you study his word you'll know them. Let them know what they are doing is false, show them in Gods word.

Worldly things are to be rejected. II Cor 6:17
If others wish to partake of them, let them and have no part of it. You will answer to God for yourself not for them. Rom 14:4
What would God want you to do? Proverbs 3:5-7, " Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil."
