Listening to the whispers

Almost seven years ago I began feeling a tug..a small whisper that made me ask God " what's next, what do you have for me" . I so desperately wanted to hear him clearly. All I could hear though was that when it came time for me I have a baby God wanted me home to be the best mom I could be. To spend time with my child during those first years that I would never get back. It was strange to me that I was feeling this way. I never had this thought or desire before. My husband and I didn't have jobs that allowed this to be a reality. I was a public school teacher and he was a police officer. But everywhere I turned I heard conversation or saw signs that confirmed that this is what God wanted me to do. But HOW? He didn't reveal that immediately so if course I tried to take matters into my own hands and "figure out" how to make some extra money. I started selling jewelry for an amazing company and it was also an amazing opportunity. I signed on at the beginning of this direct sales company and actually had the very first party of the company! I knew that the earning potential was huge since I got in so early. BUT this was a choice "I" made instead of listening to what God wanted . It was a great company..still is..but it wasn't  God's best FOR ME. 
There is so much more to the story of how this art career came to be but for today I want to simply stop right there.
Is there anything in your life that although it is good...it not God's Best FOR YOU? Are you rushing God on a answer and trying to figure it out yourself ?
I can promise you you won't be sorry when you let go of it , wait, and listen to God instead. He's got a big ole cool plan for you!
