Resting in God

I'm not very good at "resting in God." I'm a fidgety, busy, energetic, creative and imaginative person. All too often I am just not able to contain or appropriately channel that creative energy! Over the last couple of weeks I've felt the spiritual energy coursing through my body, I just didn't know how to channel it. Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established. [Proverbs 16:3] I shared on Friday that I have been praying the Prayer of Jabez.

God has not only answered my sincere prayer that He provide me opportunities to share the Good News, he answered quickly!! Oh, my! I listed on my Godly Graffiti blog all the new writing ideas I have had today. Of course, the Spirit has cleared my mind and opened my heart to the possibilities. I just needed to quiet my soul and wait on God to guide me.

My heart is not proud, O LORD, my eyes are not haughty;I do not concern myself with great matters or things too wonderful for me. But I have stilled and quieted my soul; like a weaned child with its mother, like a weaned child is my soul within me. [Psalm 131:1-2]

I am so excited to be excited about writing again! I'm thrilled to have new and fresh ideas. I have considered my ways and have turned my steps to your statutes. [Psalm 119:59 NIV]

Now my challenge will be to implement all these great ideas and still stay on track with my already established goals!

Rested and Renewed....Now the door is swung wide open and the flood gates of blessing are upon you. Can't wait to see where GOD takes you.

I understand completely. Sometimes I am so inspired that if I sit down to write just one thing I'll explode. I need three or four of me to handle all the ideas and then I short circuit since there is only one of me. I, too, am learning to get quiet and let the Lord lead in my already established goal.
