Happy Sunday; Happy Day of the Lord. I hope that in the quiet of this morning God’s grace and peace were obvious to you in your heart. January is flying by. I have been at times a bit directionless this month. That is not to say I haven’t been busy. I have been very busy with all of the usual hubub of life. I have been spending time with God in prayer, awaiting direction at times.
I have been working on the idea of forwarding Joy and trying to put together prompts and ideas for people that want to participate in the Joy Forwarding Project. However, I have come up dry on ideas. Brainstorming usually generates ideas for me no matter what the topic. I am not sure why it hasn’t worked. I think that I am expecting the ideas to be all polished and perfect looking because it may be a task that others take on. That at times causes me to have my ego in the mix.
So instead today I have asked God to guide my direction on that project. I have asked Him also to guide my steps with the students I tutor. Some of them are truly struggling right now. It is important to me that they reach their potential and that they see the possibilities within them. So I say to God today “Here I am Lord; I come to do Your will”.
Today I have decided that perhaps God is saying, “hush, dear. Just wait awhile and rest in Me”. so I shall. I shall wait upon the Lord. He will renew my strength….. I shall wait in prayer. I shall wait as I go about my duties, chores, responsibilities. I shall wait in my laughter, tears, joys and sorrows.
