…or do y’all do this, too?
I had this post in mind…it was coming together nicely (I thought). I jotted down a few ideas for it last night. I woke up this morning with a few more things He gave me (I thought). I was actually awake around 3:45 this morning. (Back to not sleeping again.) So I got up and let the dogs out and started the coffee, trying to be as quiet as possible since everyone else was still asleep (duh). I sat down for my quiet time.
It was awesome.
I opened my bible study and did a day of it (still finishing up A Woman’s Heart…God’s Dwelling Place).
It was amazing.
I journaled about two front and back sides in my notebook/journal.
I headed upstairs to the computer to sit down and work on this GREAT post that was coming together nicely (I thought) and BAM…nothing.
I KNEW I wasn’t supposed to finish it. In fact, I ignored that knowledge and tried to plow ahead with it (clearly on my own here) and was nearly in tears because nothing came together and it was just plain old YUCK.
What in the world?????????
I sat back in the office chair and opened my heart and mind and clearly knew…
It is not from Me
(just got shivers typing that)
Just like your negative self-talk is not from Me.
Just like your anger and rage is not from Me.
Just like your stress and eating issues are not from Me.
My God is awesome, isn’t He? He allowed me to go off on my merry little way this morning, to let the frustration and anxiety grow and then brought me right back around to where I needed to be. Open. Seeking. Back on His path.
I love Him so.
