So this morning, I went to Church and during our worship service there was a time to go forward for prayer. We as a body have been fasting this week and it was just a way to end the fast if you wanted additional prayer for what you had been praying for this week. I went forward and you know... it's always so cool when a stranger prays for you and speaks things to you that only God knows about. It somehow makes the prayer... more significant and... powerful. This woman that I have never met before just prayed this beautiful prayer that really spoke to my heart. At one point she touched this muscle in my shoulder that is always tense from stress and she just lightly rubbed it and spoke God's heart to me... It was powerful because He was telling me to write about the things I've been carrying... and I just cried... and once again, felt His great love for me. There was so much she/God spoke to me that was just so personal... so God.
Anyway... so then after lunch I took a nap. Mind you, I was only planning a short nap... I slept for 4 hours!! Like I said, I crashed! =) Afterwards, I still feel tired but I also feel like I did exactly what God wanted for me to do today... REST.
I guess I share all this because... the Lord spoke to my heart today and I wanted to share a little bit with you about what He told me. I get busy... I'm sure we all do. Today though, He reminded me to rest... and He reminded me that He has called me to write. I see it as a God-given thing that He has placed on the inside of me. I don't know if it will ever reach anyone else but for me... it's therapy and through writing... He speaks to my heart.
If you haven't rested today... there's still time. Take the time to just rest and focus on Him. Listen to His heart for you... He will speak if you take the time to listen.
