You may or may not have noticed, it’s been a while since I have posted. I could say it’s been the general busyness of the holidays, which is partially true. I could leave out the fact that the Lord has been stirring my heart up in a big way. In a way that’s not too comfortable at times. In a way that makes me just want to toss everything aside and follow HARD after Him.
So I have been listening. I’ve been slowing down. Because I like to run ahead.
The Lord has been impressing on my heart that it’s time to simplify, narrow my focus, and go deep.
What does that mean? What does that look like?
You know friend, I’m not quite sure, exactly. Because I’m going to let Him be my guide. To the best of my flawed, human, ability.
I do know it’s time. It’s time to listen. He is calling me out into the deep waters, and for the first time in my life I am ready to listen. Like the Call of the Wild, I can’t help but go.
Oh, I will be here. Still writing. Maybe a little less. Maybe a little different, a little more focused. But I will still be here. The name may change, or stay the same. I’m not quite sure yet.
I hope you will stay. That we will go deeper together.
Tarissa at Introverted Mama wrote about her one word for 2015 and asked of her readers if they had a word for the year. After reading her post I knew there had to be one word for my year with the way Lord had been dealing with my heart…
It is DEEP.
To slow down, simplify, and go deep.
Not wide and shallow.
But to narrow my focus and go deep.
That life is about quality, not quantity.
Two posts that God has really used to speak to me through this time are, “Deep, Not Wide” by Mel Schroder at God Sized Dreams, and “Savor the Moments” by Lexi at Scribbles and Crumbs. I hope you will stop by and check them out, and that they will be a blessing to you as well.
Both of these sites have absolutely blessed the socks off of me. Lexi and her little Charlie’s story will break you. She is so beautiful and God is just moving mightily through her.
So I am going to ask you the same question as Tarissa to maybe prompt you towards a more intentional 2015 with the Lord as your guide… Have you ever chosen one word as a theme for your year? Past or present? What will your word be for 2015?
Happy New Year friends! Be blessed! xx
