I wonder how many others feel the way I do. Adrift. Like I’m walking in a fog. A bit uncertain of the direction I am to go.
I’m tempted to give into doing what I’ve been doing. Running on the crazy wheel. Hoping purpose and clarity bursts in sometime, somehow.
But I know God has a plan for me. He’s not befuddled or lost in a sea of murkiness.
So I keep abiding in Him.
Although my mind says get on with it; you’re losing readers. Quit stalling. Keep plugging away.
My heart says,
slow and easy girl. Rest a bit. Center yourself on God and His Word. Let Him infiltrate your whole being, so your whole being can serve Him.
Rest in Him, so He can fill you with that purpose and direction.
Follow Him. Reach out and take His hand, so in His timing and by His strength, you too can walk on water.
It sounds so easy, but it is so difficult for this Type A girl.
Where is my focus? On getting and retaining readers and followers or on glorifying my Lord and Savior?
If it’s the latter, nothing is impossible, but it’s only through His strength and when and where He leads.
Oh, I expect God’ll have me back at this writing thing in earnest again soon. But for now, I’m doing a tiny bit more resting, and a good deal more abiding.
After all, how cool is it to walk on water? And it’s only possible when your focus is on Him.
“Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me.” John 15:4
Reflections: Are you preparing to walk on water? In other words, are you abiding in the only One who can make that impossibility possible?
