Aren’t we ever on the search for the best way to do things? It seems like a common step to google, search Pinterest or research the best way to do anything these days. The most effective way. The top 3 things you need. The best method. We want to get it right.
To be honest I have approached my walk with the father this way. It comes from a good place but, I have thought that if I have the best morning routine, the best journals, apps and podcasts on my phone I will be set. I will go deep. So I spend hours scouring the internet for the right things and then I have my time with Jesus squarely set. Checked off and planned. But it’s not enough, my heart still is a bit restless.
To be honest ladies, I have come to a place in my walk with the Lord where I feel like I am missing the secret sauce. Where I see women around me flourishing in freedom and passion and it’s so inspiring. I crave that beautiful peace that I see across their faces. While my head gets the freedom that the Lord has provided by giving His son for me, my heart isn’t always free. While I feel that freedom in fleeting moments, I want more. More of getting in tune with God’s amazing plan for my life, more freedom, more peace.
Yet it can be crazy discouraging because I often find myself getting caught up in the latest and greatest. I find myself spinning and scrolling my worth away at the end of the night. Yet, I did my devotions that morning, I checked my list of Jesus to do’s. Why before I go to bed I am still searching? Am I doing it right? I want to do it right. My heart cries.
Can any of you relate? Feeling like your missing that one thing? Or repeating all the “if only I had”….statements? I come before you bearing my weaknesses because y’all the Lord has given me a word for us. In the last weeks of preparing this he has been lovingly nudging my heart to share truth. For now just breathe this verse in.
“‘In him we live and move and have our being’;[a] Acts 17:28 ESV
I believe the Lord is calling us, especially woman to experience him in our every breath. Truly experience Him in our moments, and most importantly in consistency. In a steady stream of live giving water. Not just a drink here and there. In the mundane. In the car, in the laundry, in our meals. Now before you get all up in arms about how you don’t have another moment left to give, just hear me out.
