You guys have such great answers to my questions.
Prayer is absolutely numero uno. And Josh, I also believe that God just lets you know. He opens your eyes to the things you can do (work) in the place where He wants you. He also points out the places where you could work, but someone is already in that place, doing a great job. It's that shoulder-slumping moment that comes after the Great Idea--Naw, someone is already doing the thing...sigh.
Does God open a person's eyes to something that needs doing or is it just a Gift thing? Do we do our work because God shows us it needs doing or do we do it because God gives us the motivation to do it? Is that the same thing?
