There’s a reason my posts never include pictures:
I’m terrible at them!
That explains why this picture is grainy with terrible lighting.
But this picture is important.
It represents God’s plans.
I haven’t blogged since…well I can’t quite remember when.
I could go look it up, but that would take me away from my main purpose…writing this post. And if I don’t write it right now, it won’t get done. So we’ll have to do with my poor memory that has no idea when the last time I wrote.
Ok…I’m getting off track.
Back to God’s plans….
When I took a break from blogging I didn’t know if I would come back. Part of me didn’t want to. It felt like too much work. I felt like I had lost my inspiration for writing. I was stuck and I didn’t know what to do.
But God knew.
He knew I needed a break.
In the midst of that break, He reaffirmed His plan in my life.
He called me to write.
Writing has never come easy to me. I’m a numbers girl. I like my numbers. 2 + 4 = 6. Numbers are clear. They have answers.
Writing is scary.
What are the right words? Which sentences should be strung together to make paragraphs? Which thoughts should be shared? There are no straight forward answers.
But God didn’t call me to have answers.
He called me to share my heart.
He called me to share my journey.
That’s where the desk comes in. I had already told my husband I wanted to put a desk in our bedroom. I was tired of working on the couch. I needed a proper office space.
Then I walked into Staples and the clearance section was right at the front desk. There was a desk that perfectly fit the cramped corner in my bedroom…and a chair.
He knew I would be in Staples that day. He knew the desk and the chair would be there. And He knew my heart would answer the call.
He has filled my heart with ideas for posts. He has asked me to share my health journey in a new and fresh way. He has given me vision.
So here I am writing again…trusting God’s plan. And oddly enough, I’m not at my desk. I’m at the kitchen table. But I felt words that had to be written…no matter where I was.
That’s the beauty of God’s plan. He doesn’t expect us to be in the right place at the right time. He doesn’t expect us to have the right answers. He just expects us to be available.
What about you my friend? Is God speaking plans into your heart? Are you making yourself available to answer the call?
