It’s 3:50 AM EST when I began typing this post.
I could, and probably should be asleep right now but it doesn’t seem to be what God wants of me right now. Instead, I sit here. No coffee or tea or fuzzy blankets. Just me, the crackle of the fireplace, my thoughts, and the Lord.
At this moment, I get it. This is precisely where I’m supposed to be.
It’s approaching the end of the year, and so many of us are caught up in our goals for 2018—and that’s not a bad thing. I’m just learning that in my life it’s not solely about what will occur later on but what I’m doing in the here and now.
Am I present? Am I living for and in Christ now, in this space, even if it doesn’t look like the vision of grandeur that my mind tries to tell me it should?
Sometimes the Lord calls out to me loudly to come up a little higher. Other times, His voice is still and small, so faint that it requires me to abandon everything and just be. Bask in His presence while yielding to His lead. In that moment and space.
I have glorious plans for the coming year and this beautiful holiday season. But for now, in this moment, my greatest desire and dream is to please my King and just be.
I pray that’s your desire, too.
