Change your direction!

AMED 67.21

Home | A Miracle Every Day | Miracles | Change your direction!

It was unbelievable: I was sitting in the office of a famous record company, and after years of hard work, we were finally discussing the future of my musical career in the U.S. I had put all my energy and the money I had left into that flight to Nashville, and I was about to see my dream come true!

The record company executive suddenly looked at me and said, “What are we doing here, Déborah? You have such a clear mission for the German-speaking part of Europe. You belong there!” His words did not sadden or startle me at that moment because what he said felt right. It was true, and I knew that deep down inside. 

At one point, though the Israelites were on the right path, God allowed a detour. He instructed Moses, “‘Tell the Israelites to turn back…Pharaoh will think, “The Israelites are wandering around the land in confusion, hemmed in by the desert.”‘” (Exodus 14:2-3, NIV). Why a detour? Because it was part of their journey—some detours are simply part of the plan so that we can witness God do the impossible.

I had already invested a lot into my dream: I had recorded songs and music videos, and I even had my first book translated. Everything was ready, but I was being sent home, back to Germany, where I couldn’t do much with the English material I had prepared. What I see now, looking back, is that this was my detour to witness God do His work!

This detour for me was years ago, and just recently, I was asked if I could write the daily messages for you, the English-speaking A Miracle Every Day readers! Here I am today with you because of this God-planned “detour”—and everything is ready to go! I cried tears of joy when I realized God had been planning this all along.

Your detour is part of the journey. Get involved when God changes your direction unexpectedly, and trust that His plan is set in motion to do great things through YOU!

You are a miracle!

    Thank you Deborah for that word of encouragement. I am going through a season of change myself and a few moments ago I was wondering if this is the direction God intended for me. It is totally outside of my profession! I will embrace this season of my life and trust God to lead me into my destiny. God bless you

    Good morning Ms. Deborah. Thank you once again for an amazing message. Though I am new to your site, you have shown me that God must truly have a plan for me because these messages hit so close to home for me. So much so, that I will have to share your site to a few friends who just may be in awe at how many familiar details are mentioned. I’m really happy that I directed to your page because it is a great reminder of how amazing God is! Thank you once again. :)
