Which is how I think the Lord likes it. He doesn’t let me stay too comfortable for long.
I am getting into the school groove, back into our routine. I am spending regular time in the Word. I am keeping up with the housework (as much as can be expected…). I’ve been feeling pretty good.
He begins hinting… “We need to work on this area…and this area…and over here too”
He just nudges. It’s never forceful. He just bumps and nudges until I pay attention.
As He reveals these “areas” to me, at first it can feel a bit overwhelming.
My thoughts begin: “But, I don’t think I can do that” or “I don’t think I’d be good at that” or “I’ve never done that before”
Again, He’s gentle. And reassuring. And motivating. And loving. And comforting.
And so I say “Yes. Okay. Help me. Use me. Have Your will in me.”
