Dipping my toe back into the ocean of blogging this morning by responding to Five Minute Friday‘s new prompt word…
There’s a better way.
I’ve been jumping jittery from one to-do to another, making one insecure dive after another into things that I (and other people around me?) could think were productive and a good use of time. But all that tack has produced in me has been further jittery jumping into yet another busy-ness.
Then I stopped.
Then I came aside: to turn to God, to quiet my heart, to rest with Him and rest in Him. To ask Him what I should be doing, just what one thing. And even before that to ask Him more generally for guidance, for his viewpoint, His wisdom and thoughts on my life and my day, to show me how He was seeing it. I also took time to thank Him, for blessings in general, for blessings of the past day, for blessings of the morning. To show me where I’d gone wrong in the last twenty-four. Then I asked Him, what one thing did He want me to do in this day. And the answer came in this thought: Rest in Me.
And yes, I know: everything else will flow out of that, far better than from my jittery attempts at productivity.
This post flowed out that way. So may my future blogging follow His navigation. And we shall see what we shall see…
