“When God Speaks”
This blog is more of a personal experience that I would share when one asks me, “Lynda, how do you do it? How do you keep going, and do what you do?”
Have you ever been in the position that you have done every thing you can do? Perhaps you felt the load of the world on you? That your hands were tied (figuratively speaking)?
Several come to me on a daily basis with such concerns and worries. I encourage them to focus on the small blessings (no matter how small) and not entirely on the problem or the worry of what’s to come. The next step is to take all of this to their God in prayer.
I try to live by what I “preach and teach.”
But alas, I’m human too.
Lately, my nights have been spent turning and tossing! Yes, I have my own legit worries and concerns. There are times I am not even sure how my needs are going to be met. This has been one of those times.
I was recently talking to friend who is going through a difficult time at work. Spirit began to send through a message, and I blurted out, “Alright, stop calling and emailing all of your friends for their advice and opinion in the matter. It’s time to put down the phone and open that phone line to God.”
“I know,” was her response.
She couldn’t see me, but I was nodding my head and looking upward to my living room ceiling having that multi-lined conversation, “Yeah, I’m hearing you loud and clear.” It was a gentle nudge from my God of lessons I had already learned but needed to be reminded of.
Tonight, I was pacing the floor. “How is this all going to work out?” “What am I suppose to do?” I muttered as I was shuffling along the laminate flooring in my socks.
With my frustration mounting and my sanity level on edge, hugging my cup of coffee that had gone cold…I suddenly stopped in my tracks.
When God stops me in my tracks, I can explain that it feels like suddenly I am not alone. He has a way of clicking into my thoughts like no other spirit can.
“Wait,” is what I heard.
“Well, what am I suppose to do with that? Wait? Are you kidding me?” is some of what my thoughts were.
Letting out a huge sigh, I dropped my tensed shoulders and with my hands on my hip (I had to set the coffee mug down) and my head bowed I replied, “Okay. I’m listening. You said, Wait?”
My file drawers began to shuffle, and I recalled one of my verses, “Wait on the Lord….” I begin to recite it out loud. “Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.” Honestly, I couldn’t remember every word but it was enough for me to google for the Bible reference, Psalm 27:14.
I do not know all of what tomorrow will bring. I do not know how all my needs will be met. But I do know the One that holds the key to all. I am blessed in knowing the Spirits that He has put over me to lead, guide, and direct with their own set of keys. He has entrusted me with my own set (smiles) too, but I continue to learn and apply daily lessons.
So I will be patient. Tomorrow may bring on another onslaught of “Oh me!” and “Oh my!” But I know He will take me back to this moment and remind me of His promises.
