Find out How and Why God has Given me Release

Update: I needed to find a release. I think that’s more like freedom. Timing is good for this release too.

I know it’s been awhile since I posted here. I have been busy writing on Medium.com. I’ve been busy taking courses. Maybe too busy.

You can check out my posts by going to Janis Cox Medium. You don’t have to sign up to read the posts. But you can’t “clap” (which is a “like”) unless you sign up. (A few of my posts are in a program to get paid and you can’t get those unless you subscribe to Medium.) If you are already a member please tell me so I can drop over to visit you.

I did a 30-day challenge to write 5 days a week in March. Whew, that was interesting. I don’t think I’ll keep up that pace. I learned a lot though.

This week as I talked to God and read 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 I realized I needed to take a break, a release.

We travel back home to Canada on Tuesday – so lots to do here in terms of closing up.

I have two special things to tell you about.

  1. If you are looking for a place to learn about God’s Word, but don’t have time, or not sure how. Here is a safe haven – join us on our Facebook Closed Group – Growing Through God’s Word.

2. I am offering a free Bible Art course. If you always wanted to try this – here is your chance. Materials are minimal. Sign up.

Now for the Five-Minute Friday post:

Five minutes to write. Go: – The Word is RELEASE.

God always brings me back to centre.

I have been so involved in learning about blogging, writing, creating and doing I forgot to pause to live. So I am going to take a release from all of this. And I want to work on my Bible Study course.

It’s going to be hard because I love to write. But I think I need to regroup with God to discover how to enjoy this writing adventure and life too. I need to find a rhythm – a holy rhythm.

Writing about what God is telling me and teaching me is exciting. However, I need to find a schedule that fits my life.

And coming back to Canada there are other responsibilities and family to have time for.

Also, I am doing 7 Artist in the Schools workshops when I return. That will keep me involved.

So I feel God has given me a release from this job of writing for the moment.

You might see me here on Five-Minute Fridays though – because that’s what I like – to keep things SIMPLE.

Blessings,

Janis

      Thanks so much Lesley,
      It’s hard when you get on a roll and think all is good. But then God talks to you – and oh yes that might be a better idea. lol 🙂

      Jennifer,
      I took 2 months last summer and was so filled that it has sustained me until now. But, I am so happy that I heard His Word.
      Blessings

    Taking a step forward is releasing the step you leave. God has some exciting things ahead for you! God bless as you wait on His timing and direction.

    Please be sure to keep us in the loop as you participate with FMF. I feel a release coming – but not quite yet, in relationship to my writing! Bless you friend.

      Hi Susan,
      I will pray for you to be still before Him and listen. That’s my promise. But He has also shown me that connection is important. So I am reaching out more.
      Good idea to use the FMF to keep updating.
      Blessings
      Janis
