This summer has been particularly challenging since I accidentally signed up for something that I'm not too suited for and I'm still trying to figure out if God was reminding me that I need to wait on Him before I go running down a bunny trail, or if I am just wanting to only help where I can be a shining beacon of competence and leadership. When it comes to landscape gardening, I am no shining beacon, but I have met and gotten to know a bit better some truly delightful folks -- in a church of 2,000 souls that is no mean blessing!
So this week is KAIROS and Prison Fellowship and next week is Shoe Box Ministry and another meeting on surrendering compulsions, additions and distractions that get us off track; then a week being the resident Grandma so one of my children can go play with her husband. All these are good things and joyous blessings, but it is awfully easy for me to get so busy I don't take time to take my own temperature, spend time with my loved ones, tend my own body, feed my need for God's word and prayer.
God of all Wisdom, Truth and Knowledge, nudge me in the right directions, whisper Your longing to hear from me, teach me, renew me and give me ears to hear and a heart to obey. AMEN
