Need help tying it all together

So ive been "playing" for a couple of years now and have done countless hours of research about theory. All ive been looking for is what is the next step in playing the fret board as i see fit with in the confines of making musical sense. What am I missing/need to help accomplish my goal?

Theory will help you decide WHAT to play and it will help you make sense of WHAT you play but it won't govern WHAT you play. Just play.
