LOVE THE WAY HE WORKS

A few days ago I sat at my computer, willing the words to come. I watched the birds at the feeder and listened to the tinkle of the wind chime. Try as I might, not a word appeared on the page in front of me. Well, I thought, what kind of writer are you? You are not qualified to write this project. I'm completely out of my comfort zone on this one. I leaned my head back, "God are you sure you want me to do this? I don't think I know what I'm doing?" I pushed away from my desk, played with my little dog Meko, answered a few email and prayed some more. I reached for his leash when I heard the little "ping", the noise my computer makes when I have an incoming email. I checked to see who it was from, wondering if I could ignore it and just sneak outside for a while. After all I wasn't making any headway at my computer. The email was Jodie Bailey's blog, Faith and Fiction With a Touch of Southern Grace. Her blog was about feeling "out of your comfort zone", and not feeling worthy to do a project you feel the Lord has called you to do. I read, and re-read her words. She was feeling unworthy? Is this a conspiracy Lord? I immediately emailed Jodie to thank her for the blog. And to let her know I was feeling the same way probably about the same time she was. Her response to me was, "Don't you love the way God works?" I smiled to myself, grabbed Meko and Bailey's leash and we went for a walk. Every step of the way I thanked the Lord for reminding me. If HE calls me to do a project, HE will give me the resources to finish it. I was having trouble starting it. So he gave me Jodie's blog. Yes, I do love the way God works.

I sympathize with your "sit and stare" dilemma. Some days are so exasperating! Fortunately God always knows our needs, even before we recognize what they are. We are blessed indeed. :)
