These seasons are truly sacred because we can either draw closer to the Father or end up falling further away because we get in our own way and don’t seek His face in the quiet spaces. I’m still in a place of figuring things out and distractions are abundant these days. I have to just start somewhere and let God lead me and in the moments I have to be still, when it’s quiet, I need to take advantage and seek His face. I need to be more intentional about praying and spending time in His word until I hear my next set of instructions from him.
I think that is what this pandemic has given us all-an opportunity to realign our focus and get back to where we need to be. Have you taken advantage of this opportunity? What have you done during this time to find your way back to God and His true intentions for your life? Are you still lost in worry about what’s next, or are you looking to him in the present and finding joy again? Are you seeking his presence and relying on HIS strength to get you through, or are you trying to be superwoman/superman to “fix” what has been broken by this pandemic?
I am currently on a self reflecting journey right now. I’ve been active for so long in the church and it seems as though I am not on an unintended sabbatical. This is actually so good for me. As I try to self reflect often and grow, I was in a space for so long where I was pouring out into others. My focus shifted to my family and my girls and I lost the space where I was being able to be filled myself.
