Walking the Walk

God has been speaking to me... No, it's not like those fakey TV evangelists that get a message that YOU should do something, or more often, give them money.  When God speaks to me, it is in the still quiet moments when my heart does the listening, not my ears. Recently, I've been unsettled, restless - sometimes with thoughts on direction, but not always.

I've allowed "the world" to interfere. Yet, we ARE of this world, living among the rest of the people, surrounded by the needs, wants, and surpluses contained there. As tempting as it might be to become a recluse, this doesn't really seem to be the plan for me. Or at least, not in the sense that I can hide out from the world, lost in my own thoughts.

No, there's a task to do and while the details are sketchy, I've had experience trying to ignore God... it really doesn't work.  Perhaps one sign of a bit of spiritual maturity is that sketchy details would've driven me crazy in the past. I wanted to know what, how, and when.  I learned that it will all become evident in God's time, and I am okay with that.

It is not long until Lent, and recently, this has been placed on my mind. It's often been a time of personal reflection and "new year's type" resolutions for me. However, I'm not waiting for Lent this year. You can peek in on my progress from time to time as I'll share the journey. (which is a part of what was put on my heart to do) There's a tab on this blog, or you can go directly to the link, A Lenten Journey  to read it. It, like my life, is a work in progress, under construction. I'll be in touch.
