Quiet

I've been quiet here in blogland for a while...at least on this blog. I've been involved in some pretty heavy discussions on other blogs about serious spiritual matters, and I feel God is leading me through and to something. I don't know what yet. I'm just trying to listen. I'm exhausted from everything that is going on in my head and I'm just asking Him to sort it all out and show me His Truth. Until then, I'm still reading blogs and commenting occasionally, but I can't seem to formulate any complete thoughts for this one.

"Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed--not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence--continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose. Do everything without complaining or arguing so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a croddked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life--in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing. But even if I am being poured out like a drink offering on the sacrifice and service coming from your faith, I am glad and rejoice with all of you. So you too should be glad and rejoice with me." ~Philippians 2:12-18

"Clap your hands, all you nations; shout to God with cries of joy. How awesome is the LORD Most High, the great King over all the earth!...Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises to our King, sing praises. For God is the King of all the earth; sing to him a psalm of praise. God reigns over the nations; God is seated on his holy throne." ~Psalm 47:1-2,6-8

Yes, I've noticed you've been quiet, but with a baby, I just thought you were busy with Summer Stuff. I'm glad you're asking God to show you HIS truth. We're all human, and we all have our opinions ... but what's most important is what HE is placing in your heart!!!

Love ya!

I've missed you--but I have been there! If God gives you thoughts to share with us--that would be sooooo wonderful--but sometimes--I think some of our learning is just for us from Him--since He knows just what we need!

I'm praying that God will show you just what you need to know right now! Glad you are following Him! Have a good one!

It's interesting that I can relate to this entry even more than many of your other ones recently. I praise God that He has made it possible for us to be together in person again soon -- to pray, to rest, to catch up, to laugh and kiss your adorable little boy, to just be in the same room again! I am so looking forward to that!!

And I pray that the Lord will guide you into His plans more and more, that He would soothe your spirit and help you rest in Him no matter where He leads.

I love you, always, in Him.

Keep seeking--keep looking--keep open! I am struggling with some spiritual issues as well...it was good to bump into your blog today--to see that I am not alone in this journey!

Wouldn't it be nice if with the snap of a finger that we would get all the answers needed? However, God wants us to diligently seek Him! I am sure thru this journey, God will show Himself true and you'll come out knowing Him more!

Blessings!!

Ahhh...the quiet. Unsettling isn't it? It is for me at least, especially when I want to write about it but can't find the words.

Thinking of you and trusting that God will reveal Himself to you in whatever specific ways you are seeking Him in this season.

Jenn- I can relate. Although, somehow, I think you are handling the "quiet" more wisely than I have been.
