Why I took a break…

May 20 was my last blog post. Gulp. Sigh. Where to begin? I wanted to blog all last week. There were so many posts that came to mind. But I couldn’t. I made a decision not to…for one week.

In the quiet way He speaks, God led me to take a break from social media stuff for awhile. It sounds silly to even type it. I’d love to call it a fast, but then that would make it sound way too spiritual. What I do know is that the week long break turned into almost 2 weeks. And that my time with God was much sweeter.

One of the verses God led me to is from Daniel 10. “Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them.”

That’s where I want to be. I want to set my mind to gain understanding and humble myself before my God. I want to believe that He hears my prayers even when I can’t see Him moving. I want Him to be enough. And I don’t want to be afraid.

The time away from my blog stunk. I missed writing. The time away from facebook didn’t stink. It was refreshing. I’m not sure what my future time on there will look like.

What I’m sure of, though, is that God still speaks. When I’m still enough to hear Him. When I really want to listen. He speaks. He’s working and wants to lavish me with grace.
