Oh, I was all geared up to keep up with my blog…until the proverbial rug was pulled out from under my feet. I don’t know about the rest of you and how you handle limbo, the space between or the waiting in the hallway, but let me tell you about THIS girl. I do it poorly, tho every fiber of my being says “Be still and know”
My daughter-in-law sums it up in her world. “I either am cleaning, purging and being productive or curl up in bed and play Sims for ten hours” I am more of the latter type. I shut down completely.
I‘m in my wilderness place and in that place I have experienced His Holy prescence. These are the experiences I find the answers I seek and find the peace I so desperately need. I have to remind myself that it is in His time, not mine.
A dear friend who has always been a second mother told me God already knows the answer. In my heart of hearts I KNOW this to be true…but the comfort of her words and tangible love for me reminded me it is so.
I told myself that Moses was by himself at the wilderness bush. No one was with Peter on the house top when he was instructed to go to the Gentiles. John the Baptist was alone in the wilderness and John The Beloved was in Patmos when he was closest to God.
So I will covet to get alone with God. If I neglect it, I will not only rob myself, but others too, of blessings. When we are blessed we are able to pass on more to others. It may mean less outside work; it must mean more depth and power. The consequence will be as with Christ “they saw no man save Jesus only.
To be alone with God in prayer cannot be over emphasized.
If those that are/were chosen had never been alone, in the deepest, silenced open-doored to God, no greatness would ever have been dreamed or done.
Be a blessing,
