I’ve been feeling a little out of sorts. The last few weeks I’ve been feeling “stuck” or “blah.” You ever feel that way? Sometimes it’s hard to pinpoint why or where we feel stuck, so we just kinda numb out, going through life like a robot, skating by in the same routine, day in and day out. Before we know it, three weeks go by and we look back and say, “Man, I haven’t accomplished anything.” The things we were passionate about are somehow unconsciously put on the back burner.
Well, this has been me. You may have noticed that I haven’t written in awhile. I’m thinking I’ve been feeling this way because I haven’t been putting any of my heart passions to work, like writing. I’m not a pro. I ain’t no author. I just share what God puts on my mind and my heart. Lately there has been quite a bit he’s teaching me about life and such. I love to encourage women in all they are and all they do. The enemy has really been trying to fill my head with lies of insecurity and the “You don’t matter” or “What you do doesn’t matter” or “What you say doesn’t matter” ideas. For a short time I believed him. I let him keep me from that computer.
But I’m saying NO MORE. God has laid some things on my heart over the past two years or so. One of those was this blog. It took me two years to finally get the guts to just start it and I ain’t letting the enemy have his way. I am so thankful for you and your kind words and comments. Gosh, that alone tells me that this was God’s plan all along. This is all his doing. This is confirmation that maybe I should keep going?
But the last few weeks I have found myself in a pit of insecurity that led to my disobedience. Have you ever been in this land of “stuck” or “no mojo”? What have you been called to that seemed so big or weird or “What?!?” that you didn’t think you could do it? All the while the enemy is doing cartwheels chanting “I got her, I got her.”
I think the enemy is trying to keep me away from my heart passion, this little blog here. He’s tricky that way. He doesn’t want you to hear about God and what he can do in our lives. He doesn’t want us to encourage each other in our faith, in our relationships, in our marriages. He wants to break all that up. Do you see it in the brokenness all around us?
So I’m saying, let’s speak up when we feel ourselves in these funks. Let’s reach out when we find that passion slowly slipping away cuz the enemy is trying to make us all busy, wanting us to live like robots, or to turn to our sinful naturE with our time. Let’s band together. If God puts a little something on your heart or in your lap, go with it, GIRL! Do it. Even if it feels like it won’t matter. Even if no one reads your post or your blog or sees what you’re doing behind the scenes. If you’re called to make something, make it. If you’re called to sing or dance, do it. Don’t worry about being good or what you’ll look like or that you won’t have an audience. This isn‘t about any of that.
This is about obedience. This is what just popped into my head today. This is a faith-building process with God. This deepens your relationship. This is you relying on him to walk you through the process. This is you simply answering the call. It might feel weird. It might be crazy. Do it anyway. Get yo self unstuck!
This is me telling the enemy he can’t mess with me. He’s got nothing on me. I ain’t giving into to his schemes. I’m not giving up. We are gonna keep this adventure going. Coffee Mugs and Big Hugs is having a little revival up in here, y’all! I’m behind you, all the way in your adventure, whether God’s calling you to lead a yodeling club or to get outside more or to start that “getting healthy” journey you’ve been putting off. Whatever it is that feels uncomfortable or scary. Don‘t let the enemy rob you of the joy. Do the thang!
Are YOU being obedient in your calling to adventure with God?
Hugging you so tight,
