I have found myself being rather quiet lately. I am finding myself being introspective and finding it hard to blog and share my thoughts. I finding myself wondering if He isn’t calling me to a point of stillness. How easily it is for me to find myself striving to do what I’m called to and miss the whole purpose!
10 â€œCease striving and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.
11 The LORD of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our stronghold. New American Standard Bible (Ps 46:10-11).
I’m called first and foremost to be His disciple. To follow Him is my greatest calling. To know Him and Believe Him, as Beth Moore writes in Breaking Free, is one of the benefits of being called, His own.
The Lord GOD has given Me the tongue of disciples,
That I may know how to sustain the weary one with a word.
He awakens Me morning by morning,
He awakens My ear to listen as a disciple. New American Standard Bible (Is 50:4).
I was blessed by our New Year’s Day service. The Pastor spoke on this very subject and it has caught my heart. It was a confirmation to what He had been speaking to me about. I’d been praying for the Lord’s guiding for this new year and He led me to Colossians Three.. Seek the Things Above and Set my Mind on things above where Christ is seated. What truly matters?
I am focused. I am learning to be still and I will seek the things above.
What is the Lord telling you this year?
