|Mixed media on paper, 2011, aptly named, "Wander"|
I'm at that place (once again) where I feel panic bubbling beneath the surface. What should I do next in my career? I have a huge goal list and rarely are the tasks getting neat little check marks. Where am I headed? How will I ever fulfill the dreams I have if things don't start coming together? Am I being patient and "waiting on the Lord," or just spinning in place, inert and inefficient?
Another area of my life is also lacking right now: my spiritual life. Oh, I've been going through the motions, taking time in the morning for quiet, reading the Bible, prayer. But it all feels flat, empty. There's a sense of spiritual numbness and I can't help but see the correlation between this and the fact that my mind is going 125 mph most days, struggling to work out my future, wondering about what will happen, how I can MAKE things happen . . .
It was wonderful then, to come across this excellent post by The 1st Follower this morning, "When God Writes Your Story."
Read. Breathe. Pray. Let Go.
Repeat as needed.
