I feel God’s drawing me into a thinking and sorting time, a culling away of distractions to a new way of doing things.
I can’t take a good photo of a cup of coffee – and I feel no peace to do so. The pages lay blank, but I hear God calling, “Remember me”! The cardinals, the snow, even Sadie can’t draw me to take a photo – she’s been very uncooperative. It’s as though she’s been reprimanding me for NOT listening when called. My IG was severely hacked today, too. If I didn’t know who I was to God and His great love, I would think I was being sent to the principal’s office – and maybe I would be if I didn’t listen.
God is telling me to withdraw with him into a quiet time. To put aside how I have been doing things. To be obedient, so I will be obedient. I’ve felt this before – and instead of pushing my own way through, I will withdraw from trying to go forward. Sometimes the forward we journey on together with God needs changes, a new way of doing things, a turn off the path that has become more my way than His way. I need to stop and wait on what He wants me to do, so I will follow Him into the quiet and culling. Maybe it is to be a shifting, a winnowing. Maybe it is all of it, but I know God’s kind of more goodness will result – and the peace be the result.
“Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness And rivers in the desert.” ~ Isaiah 43:19
I will be back February 6 with Remember Me Monday. I am excited about this time to let go and let God!
