I think He wants me to keep writing.

Do you believe in coincidences?  I don’t.  I have felt that many of those things that happen are more of a “God moment” than a simple coincidence.  Let me explain.

I told you yesterday that I was not having a great day.  I have been struggling with what to write about, and wondered if I should just quit.  I went to bed with that on my mind.  I tossed and turned.  And then I decided to count my blessings instead of sheep.

I started with my kids.  Then I went through and named each member of my family.  I thought of each person, and thanked God for the role they have played in my life.  I  thought about the joy they have brought to my life, their unique qualities, and the blessings in the life.  I also thought about their struggles.  I prayed for financial concerns, mental and emotional struggles, and broken relationships.  I asked God for his healing hand.  I prayed that they each felt the love and joy that they have brought to my life.

And then I thought about my blog.   I thought about how I promised God when I started this blog, that it would be my way of honoring him.  I thought about how I have been trying to write from my head, instead of listening for his voice and writing from my heart.  I told him:

“If you still want me to write, I will.  If you still have something you want me to say, I will listen.”

As I drifted off to sleep, I moved on from my family to my friends.  I named each of those people who are my “family by choice”.  I thought of each of you.  I prayed for you.  I thanked God for each and everyone of you.

This morning, an amazing thing happened.  I had so many ideas for upcoming blogs, I actually had to take out paper and make a list.  I suddenly realized that God was filling my head and my heart again.  When I gave it back to Him, God gave me a new voice.  His voice.  He told me, in his way, that somewhere out there, there is someone who needs to hear from Him.  You can only imagine how I am humbled today.

So today, I am thanking God for hearing me.  I am thanking Him for talking to me.  And I am praying that I am worthy of His words.

Amen
