So…. yeah, I think I’m gonna stop doing my YouTube channel(sorry if the title caught you off guard and made you think I was gonna stop my blog. Don’t worry I prayed and I’m gonna keep my blog). Before I posted my first video I didn’t pray. Before I posted my second video I didn’t Pray. Before I posted my third video I didn’t PRAY(pay attention to how I said “Before” Because I prayed after I did my action). Prayer is ONE of the most important things you will ever do in this life. So after I posted a video or two and decided I’d keep posting I was also like “maybe I should pray”. So I did one day. Then, the next. Then, the next….(and so on). And I couldn’t find a clear answer from God if I should keep posting but I did anyway just in case. I never got an answer and I started to get frustrated.
However, today I was thinking about whether I should just decide for myself or not and then I felt something it felt like I kept thinking over and over that I probably shouldn’t keep posting and I wasn’t even trying to think that. I was actually fighting with myself in my mind “I should not keep the channel. But I really want to, I should!”. This went on for a few minutes as I stared out the car window(at the time we were headed to a friend’s house).
This fighting felt almost as if God was like “No, don’t keep the channel. It won’t be good” and Satan was like “Yes! Keep it! Don’t believe him, it will be good! And fun!”. But I went with the calm, sure voice and I thought about it and I really, really felt that for some reason God didn’t want me to keep posting. So here I am, telling you that I’m not going to keep posting although when I had come to the conclusion that I wouldn’t post anymore I also asked God “could I keep making videos and see if I could post them on my blog?”. And I’m sure that it was a clear “Yes”.
Anyway, here’s what’s happening…. I’m not going to delete my channel I’m just not gonna post anything. If your in the middle of My Minecraft Maze videos then you can find those on this blogs new section(as long as I can figure out how to post videos on here.) as well as a few others that are on my YouTube channel. I might change the Crafts page to Videos but if you want to find the Crafts I posted then just scroll to the bottom of the page.
The main point of this post is a reminder to ALWAYS PRAY BEFORE you do ANYTHING. What you might have in mind might not be what God has in mind so always make sure it’s okay and if you don’t get an answer then just be patient, God ALWAYS answers prayers at the RIGHT time.
1 Thessalonians 5:17 says “Pray without ceasing” (In other words “Pray without stopping”).
Prayer is so important and I know that. But I’m human and I forgot. Since we are all human we must remind ourselves.
I hope you learned something (I definitely did!)! I just wanted to say that God really does give us signs and speak to us in these days even though it might not seem like it to you then maybe you just gotta look and listen a little closer. 😉
