Today was crazy.
I was up to my eyeballs in stress because of everything I had to accomplish with Relevant, and the fact that there was no way I was going to do it without neglecting my babes.
The whole time I was working, I knew that God was speaking to my heart, telling me that the craziness surrounding me is not what He intends for my life.
A house divided cannot stand.
He brought me to this devotional, and what stood out to me was this:
“In essence, God said to Elijah, “You need to get out of the spotlight. You need to come up in the mountains, alone with Me, where you can hear my voice clearly. We need more time together, Elijah, and you need more training.” The good news is this: without one moment’s hesitation, Elijah obeyed. He didn’t even ask why.”
I knew God was saying, “come to me, I’ll take care of you and what you need, but you need to come to me.” I thought, “how am I supposed to do that with all this stuff on my plate? I have no time. I must get these things done.”
He met me and was gracious, as always.
But now, now I know it is time for me to obey, and He couldn’t have provided the timing any better. Tomorrow I leave for Tennessee to visit my sister for four days. My plan was to take my computer and work in the crevices of the day, and especially in the airports and on the plane. I have “important” things to do, and I have obligations to people…
I need Him. I need to obey.
For the next four days I’m going to take the small spaces and be with Him. I’m going to leave my computer behind and go “to the mountains.”
Perhaps you too have a mountain you need to visit.
