The past couple weeks have been a constant tugging to let go, disconnect, and connect deeper with the Lord. But it’s so dang hard. Having a ministry that requires me to be on social media can be tricky, but it’s no impossible.
Part of me wants to completely disconnect, but another part is afraid to let go because… How will people know about my ministry? How would I reach those that need to hear a word of encouragement?
I’ve been in great need to hear from God. I’m desperate to hear his direction. And there are days when I’m in a spiritual high. Things seem to be going well and I feel a sense of purpose and accomplishment. And then there are days when I can’t hear his voice. It’s as if God completely removed himself. (I know, it’s all in my head, but you know you’ve felt the same way)
But I know better because he tells me, “My sheep know my voice; I know them, and they follow me.” John 10:27
I must follow. I must listen. I must tune in. Me… it’s my job to seek him. And so, I seek silence as a step into hearing from him. To really tune in to the Holy Spirit’s direction. If you feel the same, join me on practicing silence and hearing from the Holy One.
Remember, you’ve got a fire within. Fan the flame, shine bright and live fearlessly. For God did not give you a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7
