Finding My Way Back to God’s Embrace

Haven’t posted in a long while. I don’t really know what happened. I think it was a combination of feeling tired of blogging and being busy with other aspects of our lives. 

During my time away from my blog, I’ve had a lot of time be with the Lord. I found myself spending some time in the morning talking to Him, enjoying Him and letting Him enjoy me. I haven’t had that type of time with Him in awhile and it was so wonderful. 

It’s so easy to get caught up with life. Our calendars, moments get stolen so easily. At the end of weeks that turn into months and months into years, we’re left wondering in rare quiet moments: what we’re doing, where we’re heading and am I really enjoying my life? At least that’s where I was. 

I noticed that once I stopped busying myself with lists, todos and “I shoulds”… I missed the Lord. I missed His voice, His presence that lifted my heart to a place of utter peace and joy the world could not offer me.

The Lord then brought materials, books of others lives that were lived close to the fire of His love upon my path. My heart started burning with hunger for more of Him and my plans begin to loosen its grasp upon me. 

Suddenly, I started hearing His voice again. I began sitting on my sofa and let myself rest in His embrace in the mornings again. I began to quiet down long enough to hear Him speak His words of life again. 

It’s easy to get caught up in life and allow our schedule dictate our lives, but we were made for God not for planners and calendars.
