Sometimes God has to push (shove) me to do a thing. It’s not that I am stubborn as much as I am insecure about my significance and/or do not trust my own judgment. As humble as that sounds I admit it really reveals a a type of lack of trust in God. Stepping back from my SELF, I can look out instead of in and embrace the reality that God can use anyone and anything to do His will. I just need to get out of the way. Do or not, say or not.
I think it’s okay to be careful and patient, to not react without first considering where the impulse came from. To pray and wait. We are flesh, after all. Human nature is real and childish and often impetuous, self-centered and myopic. At least, in my personal walk with Christ, I’m comfortable with keeping my opinions to myself unless and until I get the confirmation to go ahead.
I often write to find out what I think so I also often do not share what I write. But, even as I was holding on to this one, things were pointing me toward putting it out there. And so, I share it here.
