I’m in a time of waiting. Everything in my life, it seems, is at a fork and I’m waiting for God’s direction. Not for the final destination. I’ve walked with Him long enough to know that rarely comes. He may give me a glimpse now and then, enough to ignite passion, but normally that’s all it is–a glimpse. Most likely because He knows, if given the Mapquest version, I’d trudge ahead in self-reliance.
I’m learning God wants me to stay light-footed, easily swayed, ever listening, ever waiting, ever drawing near.
Psalm 32:7-10 (NASB)
7 You are my hiding place; You preserve me from trouble;
You surround me with songs of deliverance.
8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go;
I will counsel you with My eye upon you.
9 Do not be as the horse or as the mule which have no understanding,
Whose trappings include bit and bridle to hold them in check,
Otherwise they will not come near to you.
10 Many are the sorrows of the wicked,
But he who trusts in the LORD, lovingkindness shall surround him.
Praying as you wait – and listen.
Oh this is SO true. I think those of us on the writer’s journey, in particular, need to read this every day. Well, I do anyway. Let go and let God.
I know what you mean about the need to remember this daily. And I love that song, “Let it Go.” Have you heard it?
Thank you, Jennifer. This was exactly what I needed right now, to be reminded to listen and not be too self-reliant, but to rely on Him.
