Hi GodChild blog readers,
Just a quick update. I’m still recovering from a sudden illness last month. I’m doing well – really – but recovery … both physical and spiritual … takes work.
Spiritually I had a very strong sense of God telling me to PAY ATTENTION when I found myself flat on my back in the hospital. It was a very clear message: “You thought you were paying attention before, but you weren’t. Well now you are. Learn something.“
The prayerful clarification I’ve received since then is pretty much, “Shut up and listen.“
I talk a lot, and God has been revealing to me how I use words rebelliously.
It is not an easy lesson for me to receive, but it is clear to me that it is at least one of the lessons I need to be learning.
So it’s not time for me to be writing right now. It’s time for me to shut up and listen.
And that is what I am working on doing (not always entirely successfully).
I want to make it clear that this is not a bad thing. It is a good thing … a very good thing – because it’s God’s will.
Among other things I’m learning to distinguish the peace and joy that come from doing God’s will as separate from the human sensations of happiness and pleasure.
It’s all good.
If and when it is God’s will, I’ll be back to this blog.
Thank you for your prayers and love.
