Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path. Psalm 119:
I’ve been quiet here. But do plan to be back writing faithfully in a few weeks!
In the meantime this is what’s been going on…
Have you ever experienced that moment when your GPS voice says “recalculating?” That moment of hesitation, waiting for the new (correct/another) direction ? Since just before Christmas, I’ve been feeling like I’m in a recalculating moment.
Below is a quote from a post I wrote entitled A Pathway to Goals
“And I felt a God nudge to let go of all I understood and how I thought things should go–a God nudge to turn and prepare my heart for Him in the wilderness where He provides comfort, hope, and renewal.” You can read the entire post at Inscribe Writers Online
And have you ever commented on another blog and got an ah ha moment?
Below is my comment to The One Word That Almost Wasn’t
“I think I can understand too, your hesitation in not ‘doing’ as the world is always influencing us to do this, that, get better, take a course, join this program, read this devotional etc and then you’ll be a success, okay….everything will fall away if you stop. 🙂 When I think about a time of pruning, I also see a branch lifting up to receive the sunshine after being buried under a weight of extra…”
My branches are heavy and it’s a time to let go although I’m not sure all that I am to lessen…
A final note for now:
The entire life of Jesus isn’t the story of somebody climbing up the ladder; it’s a picture of someone coming down-a series of demotions. The problem with spending our lives climbing up the ladder is that we will go right past Jesus, for He’s coming down. John Ortberg
Then Jesus declared, “I am the Bread of Life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.” John 6:35
May He quench your thirst today.
