"give me that funky Jesus music, give me that soulful gumbo."
I seriously need some Jesus Gumbo right now. I have not been passionate or moved in anything pertaining to my spirit in connection with God in too long.
I'm not feeling dried up. He's very much here, present and involved. It's me who's lacking/slacking.
A couple of months ago time came and swept me up like a tide. And not that I'm less busy now, but I have time back again (if that makes any sense) and I just can't seem to get back "in it". You know?
I had great things rolling for a good stretch before summer. From Ann Voskamp and the gratitude project, to Walking with Him Wednesdays, to some really great books including "The Pursuit of God", to Compassion, to Women Living Well, to a proverbs 31 study which I devoured, to God Speaks, to reading all of your websites which meant SO much to me, to a James study... all right here in my home.
Now, I'm looking out, ready, and I can't snag onto anything I remotely have a heart for.
I should at least be DEEP in prayer, maybe even fasting right now for my family, my parents home front, my husbands work, my son's relationships, my coming FES daughter's travels and readied heart. Barb V, Dolly G, and even me.
But I lay my hands on his deeply breathing chest in the morning and press out a few hard to find words in my half-sleep. I curl around my little one and squeak out the only thing that always comes to me when I ask anything for him -safety and health and that He will be planted deep down and soundly in his little heart, forever. Amen
So, if you could help me if you are reading this: ask God to give me a gentle little nudge into what ever area of Him He has for me next. I want it so badly.
Pray that He gives me what it takes -motivation, fire, passion, inspiration... to get me in that water again.
If you have any ideas or are being moved by something you are in love with these days in Spirit, share it with me would you, please?
Thanks so much for checking in on me.
I hope that all is well with you.
Blessings and love,
