Checking my capacity
You ever have moments where you sit down to do something you actually enjoy, but it just doesn’t feel right?
Well, that is totally me right now. The past seven days have been jammed with encouragement, stretching, growing, and learning. My brain and heart are on overload.
When I sat to write for this week’s midweek three, I kept praying “Lord, what are you showing me? What do you want your daughters to hear?”
I scribbled ideas, sketched out brain maps, but nothing seemed right. Again, I would go back to prayer, “Lord, what are you showing me? What do you want your daughters to hear?”
As much as I wanted to write, no thoughts flowed, no ideas stuck, and everything felt forced. This is not what my blog is about. I don’t write to have something checked off my list. Writing is an extension of ministry where I have the privilege to draw others to Christ with the written word. I don’t have to write, I get to write. If I treat my gifts as a chore, I cheapen God’s intentional decision to place them in my hands.
Then He revealed to me-rest. My mind and my heart need to process and recover from such a full week. So I am doing the very thing I write about–choosing self-care.
No Mid-week three. No videos. Rest.
Thank you for being on this journey with me and for being understanding.
Grateful for you,
