Okay, I’m Listening

Well, that little voice told me “it’s time”, again. I keep thinking, “time for what?” but I already know. You see, it’s that denial game I play with myself and God. I think it’s just some random thought that pops into my head and I say, “yeah, yeah” and move on with life. Then it pops into my head again, out of no where, and again, I put it aside and move on. Then it begins to pop into my thoughts day-in and day-out. I go to bed and toss and turn, trying to fall asleep, but all I can think about is this thought. It’s really quite frustrating.

The first time God whispered to me to write a book, I fought it for about 7 years. We went ’round and ’round because I would not listen. It got to the point that whenever my mind was not purposely directed on some task or issue, that blasted book filled my thoughts. I didn’t think I had what it took to write a book (and really still don’t) but when I finally sat down and just did it, peace came back to my mind. So I feel God is telling me to write another book and I just need to get over myself and stop arguing with Him.

He whispered it a few weeks ago and I ignored him but He is relentless. That is how I know it is Him and not just me. So I thought I’d take the easy way out and expand on my A – Z Codependency Challenge and turn it into a book but yeah, He’s not going for that. Okay, I get it. Then all of a sudden the other day, the topic popped into my head and I said, “Okay”. Today, I started the research and already I feel better.

Who knows how long it will take or what will come of it but I am going to listen this time. Life is a little more peaceful when I’m not arguing with God. LOL!

Well, talk about affirmation…I was searching for a quote and came across this image and read the article. God in his perfect timing…need I say more? Click on the image to read the 2-part article.

  1. It’s wonderful that you’re following God’s calling. Thanks for sharing the graphic too — sometimes I question whether something I sense God is calling me to do is from Him or just something I feel I need to do, so this should help with that. God bless you as you move forward in obedience!
