Today is a good day. I revel in these days. I feel rested overall. My mind is in a good place and I feel empowered at the moment. But most importantly, today I really feel God’s presence.
I have a friend, Shelley, who blogs as well. She’s a talented woman and shares her strong faith. She wrote yesterday about Jonah and obedience…or really our lack thereof and it struck me.
I like to think of myself as obedient. I’ve had so many moments in my life where God spoke loudly to me and I had no hesitation in obeying. So many “Job moments” as I like to call them…where in a deep sleep God sealed my instructions in my heart. But am I truly obedient even in the small moments?
Sometimes I feel prompted to reach out to someone or to fill a need but I’m too tired or too wrapped up in my own “stuff” to take a moment. I have so many reasons at the time, all of which feel reasonable in the moment, but are they really?
I often joke that I’m loud so God speaks to me in crashing cymbals but what I am coming to understand is he speaks to me in that still small voice as well but it’s easy to miss, or worse yet, ignore, especially when life is busy.
I am thankful for my friend’s example of inviting the Holy Spirit in. I believe the Spirit is always present but it’s a relational thing. A two-way street. So today I am inviting the Spirit in and I will work on being still in moments and listen. And most importantly when called I will work on obedience … because I know though that He might call me to assist another, in doing so my own cup will be filled. It’s funny how love works that way.
