Wednesday’s Word – Aware

As I try to be more intentional of what God is showing me I know I have to be more aware of people; their body language, and their underlying words. I am trying to not be so agenda driven and trying to be more in tune with the Holy Spirit.

This is not easy. When I have “things to do”, “places to go” and “people to see” I want to do them.

I struggle with letting go.

But each day gets a little easier as I try to focus on what needs to be done in the time I have and let all the rest fade into Neverland. It is hard for a task-oriented person to say, “oh well I don’t have to do that”. But it is possible! With God’s help.

“If you are God-centered, you will adjust your life to what God wants to do” (Experiencing God, Henry Blackaby). Tweet this.

This is what I am learning from my Bible study. Blackaby states quite clearly that:

God can interrupt what I am doing anytime He wants. Tweet this.

But I have to be aware of it so I can change my focus and obey Him.

It is working with my husband, (I think). I am trying very hard not to be totally into my work all the time so that I can actually have time to listen to him. Well God wants me to do the same thing.

This week is a case in point. I was asked to do a storytelling for the Sunday school this past Sunday. Well – you know I had a zillion things to do already. When would I have time to concentrate and learn a story? But …. I said YES because I knew God gave me this opportunity to try this. And you know what? –

God gave me the time (He has control of time, you know);
He gave me the confidence; and He gave me the energy and passion.

I had a wonderful time.

So – are you focussed on your “stuff” or are you becoming aware of what God is doing  – and following Him?
