A tangled up mess.
I think of my balls of yarn that get all tangled up when I let them do their own thing.
Those pretty little balls of yarn can get in a hot mess if I don’t pay attention while I’m crocheting.
They can also get in a mess of tangles if I just throw them in a bag without any care.
Next news I know, I got a tangle of mess and I just end up cutting it and re-tying it.
That’s what happens when I don’t take the time with most things in life.
Especially with my listening skills or lack thereof with God.
My spirit and soul gets all tangled up in knots. I feel stressed. I feel so many emotions at once. And then I know why.
I’m not listening.
Sure. I’m still soaking up The Word. I’m serving. I’m pouring out. I’m having my bible study and I’m praying. But. I’m not allowing myself to be poured in to like I need to. I’m not Being Still or quiet and listening.
I hear HIS voice in my spirit.. I feel the tapping on my heart. I feel the gentle nudging from The Holy Spirit pulling me back.
Come to me. Sit still. And LISTEN.
Quit talking. Listen. Rest in my presence.
Let me talk to you. Listen. Just LISTEN.
It’s time to BE STILL more. Listen. Hear from THE ONE who made me and everything.
His voice is most important.
His voice and His Word and my undivided attention to it is the only way to untangle my spirit and mind.
I’m going to start getting up before everyone else again. Like I did a few years ago. Because that’s what works for me. I’ve got to be still.
Maybe you need to Be Still and let HIM speak to the tangles in you as well. You’ve got to choose to. You may need to schedule it in as well.. Just like a coffee date.
That’s all I have for now. Maybe something I’ve shared will hit home for you. If it does, it’s all God.. All glory to God. He’s so good. I love him so. And I love how he loves me. Tangled up mess and all. And I want to BE STILL more often with him.
Until Next Time. Working on Being Still. Every day.
Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world. ~Psalms 46:10 NLT
My soul thirsts for God… ~Psalm 42:2a
