My voice has been very quiet lately. There doesn't seem to be much to say.
God has seemed quiet lately, too. I bet He has lots to say, tho.
If only we weren't trying to communicate thru soup cans...that is how it feels sometimes. He is so far away, so quiet right now, makes me wonder-is the string taut enough?
Have I been in His Word enough? Am I caught up with the pettiness of my world rather than seeking His guidance? Am I setting aside time for Him or is my schedule jam packed so that I speed from one thing to the next and only pray "quickies" in the car? Am I practicing spiritual principles or am I stuck in indifference and intolerance?
These are the questions I ask myself from time to time. There are other questions, I suppose, based on the situation, but these fit best for now. It helps me to consider whether the "string" that connects me to God is taut so that I can hear Him, or perhaps whether I have set my can down, distracted by other things.
I have been distracted. I have been trying to manage things on my own, again. It is so odd that as children of an all powerful God, we do not always seek Him when crises come into our lives. Perhaps some seek Him only in crises, but I always try to manage things on my own first.
Turn it over...turn it over...turn it over
Yet, when I recall crises that I have turned over and partnered with God on; they run so smoothly and can be so inspiring.
Well, just for today, I will seek God the moment I sniff out a problem. We will meet the challenges of today.
