Some days words are just a jumbled mess in my brain. There are so many things to think about. So many things to figure out that I can’t even decide where to start. It’s like sitting motionless in a room surrounded by dirty laundry and screaming children. And dusty furniture. And dirty dishes. Overwhelmed with all of it. So overwhelmed that you turn your back on all of it and take a nap.
How do you start to sort things out when there is so much to sort? How do you pull out one thing, then the other, then the other and slowly start to put it together?
YOU don’t. And neither do I. Only God can. We have to remember to let Him. Sometimes sitting motionless is exactly where He needs us to be. Motionless and silent – open to His leading.
Just when we think we have it all figured out, God throws a wrench it there. He says, “now wait a minute!” I do have something better for you. Don’t be in such a rush” Then just when we think the waiting has become unbearable, He reveals a plan that is far beyond our wildest dreams.
I am in that place now. Waiting. Admittedly impatiently. When Faith is all we have to clutch with our fists, it may be all we need. And maybe instead of fists, we need to open our hands and be ready to receive. Whatever it is, whenever it comes. I don’t want to miss what He has for me!
