Life, Spiritual Walk

Just do it.

This weekend has been meaningful encounter after meaningful encounter, and this morning, after saying “yes” to many an upcoming coffee date, phone conversation, and upcoming meeting, I thought to myself:

Am I going to have any time left for me?

As an introvert, this is a question I think about frequently and is actually a point of anxiety. I crave my solitude and recharge time.

When is my next alone time?

I found myself overwhelmed by this question, And immediately knew I had to hand my schedule over to God. I know He is calling me to be open and available in this stage of life, and I trust that He won’t give me more than I can handle. It’s important to balance self-care and ministry, but when God says go, trust that He will also prepare the rest and recharge that you need.

Just a thought!

Life, Spiritual Walk, Thoughts

“What do you think of me?”

Lately I’ve been feeling a bit lost in my relationship with Father God. If I’m being honest, I’ve had no problem hearing Him for other people while I’m praying for them, but for me personally, I feel like I haven’t received anything meaningful or encouraging for awhile. Then suddenly it occurred to me, when was the last time I asked?

If you’re feeling like you haven’t heard God’s voice in awhile, I want you to try something. Imagine you’re in a room with Him: His throne room, your home, your favorite place of rest, anywhere. Once you see yourself with Him, I want you to ask Him the question “Father God, what do you think of me?”

God is always waiting to give us a fresh word and pour His love and affection upon us. We simply need to be ready to receive.

Just a thought.
