Dear Faithful Readers,
I know many of you have come today to read this week’s blog post and I am so thankful you came. And I even have a post that is nearly finished. I could have finished it and had it ready for today, but it just didn’t feel right. These last two weeks have been some times of spiritual stretching for me. I have felt the need to sit and get from God more and more and anything I tried to write, just didn’t feel right. My planned blog post for this week is good, and it is what I needed to hear… But I am just not there yet. I am not at a place where I can put those words out because it is an issue I am still wrestling with myself. I felt like a fake putting all that out there as if I had mastered the issue. And before your brain goes haywire, it’s not anything terrible or some sin I am deeply tangled in, it’s just an idea and thought that Jesus and I are still discussing. I believe He is still teaching me. And as teachers know, there is nothing worse than trying to teach something you don’t fully understand, so I am putting that post back for a later date.
I debated and debated on pushing through. I contemplated throwing something else together. But I have found that honesty serves me best so I thought I would just be honest with my readers. Right now, I am just waiting on God (which may be my next topic) to give me clarity and direction in a few areas. I know I am in a time of stretching and growing and I feel a little bit like I am on a merry-go-round in terms of where to focus my study and blog topics. Everything is a blur and I can’t focus on anything for too long before I am swirled in a different direction. But as a wise friend told me, this is a season… a season that I pray will bear good fruit.
So I pray that you hold on with me during this season. I pray that my honesty some how helps you this week and I pray God leads me in a clear direction so that I have His words of wisdom to share next week.
It wouldn’t feel right not giving you a little of God’s word, since that is what I am sure you came looking for. So here is some scripture for us both this week.
Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; For You I wait all the day.
This verse is perfect for me right now. I am waiting and doing my best to allow God to show me the truth and teach me what I need at this moment. In the meantime, I will hold on to his salvation and all of His promises. I will look to that fact. I will look to him. And I will wait. I will wait for him to lead and guide me and reveal His plan to me in due time. He will prove faithful and I will wait…
