When you are led Christ and not the world you are led in directions that can cause you to either be very happy or sad as you learn to trust Him for everything. When nothing is happening, step back and allow God to work even harder in you and help you grow as a mature Christian seizing each day for Him, in Him and with Him.
Taking the time to Thank God for Blessings during times when you are unsure proves to God that you can be dependable and ready for any kind of spontaneous work or task He may put you to. Many times when you do the things that are spontaneous you see His work in a different way somehow not matching up to what you expected to be doing. You may have ideas of what He wants you do, but it turns out to be very different. Praise Him all through your triumphs and treasure Him as His hand is seen in the unseen.
