So some of you may have wondered if I fell off the planet lately. I haven’t. I promise.
I’ve just been caught up and have neglected my blog. Well and the fact that I’m slightly addicted to facebook doesn’t help! 🙂
Today I feel pretty overwhelmed. Although I still count my blessings every day…the daily grind is just getting to me.
Today’s sermon was a powerful one. It was one that I had no choice but to stop and let go of myself for. It was like the Holy Spirit was just saturating the room, and most were weeping at the mood in there.
Marty, my pastor, made it a point to ask us to let go of what we wanted for our lives and to ask God for direction in what HE desires for our lives. He said giving God the control is the most freeing thing we’d experience. And for those that ‘needed’ the control of their own lives…well they could have it. But God gives us a choice. We can work our own future and control our own destiny…our we can fully give our lives over to Him in faith that He has our future.
I don’t know about you, but I need that reminder once in a while. He asked that we lay our burdens down, lay down whatever was holding us back from a real relationship with Christ.
To me, there are those that talk to God. There are those that believe in Him. There are those that even do both.
BUT I truly believe that one can’t experience God’s full capacity for our lives until we let go of our own will and submit to His for our lives.
SO if I’ve been MIA for a while. I apologize. I’m just in transition mode, trying to truly figure out what God’s will is for my life. How am I to make an impact in my world? Is it by being a friend, a listening ear to someone in my real and daily life? Is it by blogging or writing books to reaching out for Christ and hopefully planting a seed? Is it by being a ‘there for my son’ in realtime mommy?
It’s hard to fit all that in – in one day. (plus facebook) LOL.
Know that God is working in my life right now and I feel completely helpless and a little overwhelmed, but I know God will guide and instruct me. And having that faith is what gets me from day to day….that and counting the many blessings he places in my path.
