Okay, so this is a hard topic for me to tackle, but it seems to be where God is leading me today. I must first confess that I have a tendency to want to always put in my two cents, in person and online. Well, God has been dealing with me about that lately. Feelings have been hurt, there is a rift in the family and I am now listening to God’s still small voice when He tells me just to be quiet. I am trusting that He is working to straighten everything out, but it is certainly hard to wait.
Since I do not want to be considered a fool in the eyes of the Lord, I have been letting go of anger and bitterness and just letting God handle things. That means, for me, that I am not just telling everyone exactly what I think. My grandmother used to call that “giving someone a piece of my mind.” I’m at an age now when I need all the pieces of my mind, and I know after many years of experience that it means that I am responsible not only for my words and actions but also for my thoughts. So, once again, I am trusting God to work things out without my help. In fact, in the past when I tried to help, it didn’t work out so well. So, time to take a step back and see what God can do!
This is where I am now, choosing a path and the current path is one of silence and waiting. I know that He is able! I hope that wherever you are that you have come to the same conclusion that I have…God will show you the path to take if you just seek Him. Have a blessed day and may the Lord direct your steps.
