I'm not sure what to write today. I have so many thoughts in my head, and I can't seem to pull them together. Ever have days like that?
I'm 99% sure it's anxiety and fear talking. I'm about to enter the final week of Lent, and I've taken a peek or two at social media, which makes me unsure if I'm ready to go back. Fear may be driving that too.
I didn't accomplish all that I wanted to, but I feel like I've gained so much.
The hardest thing I'm dealing with is engaging with the Word. This is probably because my mind is so busy that I'm not slowing down my pace to meet His; this is scary for me because it's what I was afraid would happen as this season came to an end.
I'm going to take time over the next week to figure out what I want to bring back and what I don't. Some people will tell me, just like they did when I mentioned being off social media for 40 days, that I'm making a mistake. That's okay with me. If the Lord is telling me what direction to take, I am going to take it.
One of the most significant gifts I've received is the gift of being open to the Spirit and Jesus, whispering to me what my next step is. I know the frequency He speaks to me in, and I will protect it as much as possible.
Today, I'll shop for groceries and enjoy time with my family. We've seen so much growth in our relationships with each other that I'm excited to see what the next 40 days brings.
