I just wanted to share this passage... just because. It's another one of my precious realizations. It really applies to my situation. Almost as old as time and probably already obvious to many, but I recently encountered it and it was a moment when God's voice was very clear to me (Aren't moments like that thrilling? Love 'em). Anyway, it's as much for me as it is for anybody who'd be blessed and be guided by it.
Then Moses said to him, “If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here. How will anyone know that you are pleased with me and with your people unless you go with us? What else will distinguish me and your people from all the other people on the face of the earth?” – Exodus 33:15-16
