I used to have time to write, before I published Tadeo Turtle. Somehow time has become shorter. Why is that?
Marketing? Blogging? Platform building? Social Media?
This month God showed me something very important. I don't need to do all that all the time. He showed me that I can spend 40 hours taking an art course, have fun and also have time to blog, eat, and time with my hubby.
This past week the same thing happened. Three days were taken away from social media as a family member needed my help. And except for almost forgetting this post, most things were accomplished.
I think I have found the answer. I asked myself what is really important? And I remembered that each day God has His agenda - and I am supposed to let go of my agenda.
I have this quote above my computer. I can't find it online so have no idea where it came from.
"We have no control over what life delivers to our door. But we have complete control over our response. Let the record show your response brought glory and honour to God."
God had been taking time to talk to me and I didn't want to listen. He showed me that I am a special work of His but I am in progress. Remember: God isn't finished with me yet.
If I remember to let go and leave my day to God, He does give me the time, the nudging, the connections and the energy to do it His way. So I can do art; I can write; I can visit family.
God shows me what is really important to Him. (tweet this)
"We have no conception of what God is aiming at, and as we go on it gets more and more vague" (Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest, August 3).
My only goal is to please Him.
Are you writing for God? Are you listening to His nudges?
What has God been saying to you lately? Are you doing what you love? Are you excited to do it? Why do you write? Ask yourself these questions. Then ask God to show you where He wants you to focus your attention and time.
I have learned to continue to follow His Footsteps and He will show me the way He wants me to go.
