Sometimes when you do a blog, you get caught up in doing a blog.
Must. write. new. post…
But the whole point of this blog is to share my walk with God, with you. And it turns out that you can’t force that through grammar or eloquence, or through schedules.
I sat staring at my screen, so tired after a long week yet wanting to write something to encourage you all. What came to me? Nothing. And then, more nothing.
What was wrong? But as I went back over the past days in my mind, I realized that my to-do list had been in the diver’s seat and time with the Lord wasn’t on the agenda. I’d forgotten to be still with Him, to just enjoy Him and His word.
I took a moment there at my computer to pray. Then the very familiar image on my computer desktop jumped out at me. I saw the horse dipping his mouth into the peaceful waters, and the Lord whispered to my heart, If you’re thirsty, stop and drink.
Even just in that invitation, refreshment flooded my soul. That was His voice in my heart, the most comforting voice in all the cosmos. The voice that spoke life into existence, moving in me, calling to me.
What have I been doing all this time??
Enjoy Him friends! Enjoy moments with Him, seeking Him, dwelling on scripture. Stop everything and drink.
And if He feels far, reflect on Psalm 42. As He has always been faithful, so He will continue to be for you.
As the deer pants for water, so I long for you, O God. psalm 42:1
