When We Have Days That Seem Like One Big Question Mark
Am I the only one who has days when you find yourself waking up to a day of wondering what is your purpose for the day and what if I don’t fulfill the purpose that God is leaving me here for? Do you have days when your mind is so distracted that it seems impossible to focus on the here and now? And the questions like…what can I do to bring light and truth to someone when I feel so inundated with all “my stuff!”
Am I living a life that is glorifying to God? A friend posted a wonderful heartfelt letter today on FB that made me stop and think about the storms In our lives and what we should be doing in the midst of the storms that come to us and how to come out on the other side, with more faith having grown into more of Christs’ likeness than when we entered the storm. Some days just pass by so quickly because of business or so bogged down with commitments that I hardly give these questions a thought. Other days find me having more time to think and ponder (I love that word….makes me feel so educated when I use it) only to;
• find that I try to fill my time with matters that don’t bless anyone or give of my time to someone that might need something! This is not a post to cause guilt or discourage others. It is just something that has been on my mind to put into words. Did God give us days in which to just enjoy without heavy thinking or having to always be “on” and look for ways in which to be a lighthouse for Him? Of course! But I pray that even in those ordinary days my life will reflect Him. But sometimes (and yes you can tell I’m an only child) I try to make too many days all about me and resist the nudging of the Holy Spirit to use me in ways that seem like a new opportunity for me to give of my time or talent God has given to me!
• Yesterday our guest preacher, Levi Lusko, told us “you don’t get to choose your storms but you can choose how you respond to them “!
When our “question mark”days come, and so many times these question mark days come in the middle of a storm and yes they do come to all of us, may we all look to our Creator God to give us His wisdom, His guidance but most of all His love for others so that we will bring glory to Him no matter what He ask of us or where He takes us
