I got stuck!
Somewhere between my sweet grandbabies and dealing with business details I have found myself thinking about PrayerPoints and not writing them down and fleshing them out. The “pause” in my day is not long enough for me to get things out on paper. As long as there is a pause, it’s ok. But there routinely needs to be more than that, too. I need time to dig deeper, even if nothing gets written down.
If I am looking for the peace that passes all human understanding, I need to go to the source and linger there and let all the words soak in. I need to revisit the recounting of provisions made throughout the generations. I need the time to be surrounded with the words of comfort and care and correction from my Creator. Now, that is a place worth being stuck!
There can be beauty in the mundane and repetitious. My goal is to identify a rhythm and pace that works for me, even if it changes with “seasons”. This is particularly important because I am entering a very busy work season. I need to practice turning off my “work” mind so it isn’t always processing ideas.
Do you like activity? Predictability? Flexibility? Are you stuck in a rabbit hole? Let’s head up to the surface together — we can spend 15 minutes in the sunshine, gathering up some Vitamin D and then we can embark on our day.
What’s that one thing you need to get done? Take your first step to get there. I’ll take mine.
May His peace be with you!
