Do you ever feel like if you're not "doing" you are missing out on success?
That if you aren't working TOWARDS something... checking off a list... creating... that you are wasting time?
I'm not sure if that's just me (enneagram 3 up in here)... but I have the hardest time with stopping, feeling, and being. It's a battle I face daily and WHY I have to live intentionally to put myself first. Turn off the phone, detox from social media every weekend, plan uninterrupted time with my hubs and kids. I CHOSE to live intentionally because I know and accept my weaknesses. We all have them. It's learning to self-evaluate and challenge yourself not to give in to them.
Anywho, I recently went through a season of wanting -- wanting the next big thing, wondering what was next, getting shiny object syndrome, getting distracted by all the amazing opportunities floating around -- but I knew this was my flesh and early desires for more.
I stopped myself right there and started praying.
I prayed for clarity, direction, guidance, and help. I asked God to show me what HE wanted me to do next... and you know what he said to me?
WAIT. BE STILL.
Say whattttt?! Lord Jesus, you gave me this personality and this insatiable drive to DO and create! Now you want me to sit and wait? Doesn't He work in the most mysterious ways?
Against everything in my being, I was obedient to this call.
For the first time in years, I needed to STOP moving long enough to hear God's directions. In this season of quiet, I received answers, clarity, peace, and provision. I also heard what he wanted me to do next, which I would have missed if I had acted on what my head was telling me to do!
Pure magic when you are aligned with what God wants for you instead of what you want for you.
In today's episode, I walk you through a recent season I went through of being quiet, still, prayer and fasting. It was the hardest thing ever for me to trust in the silence. And, it ended up being one of the most transformational times in my life.
Is God calling you to wait and be still? How to navigate and trust the peace. I hope you enjoy. I'll meet you inside the episode, sis!
