When you need to do something, but you really don’t know how to start it, what do you end up doing?
I ponder. I think over and over about the right words I need to say or write. I sit on my task and think of all possible scenarios before I leap. This “reaction” to pressing duties is in part why my Neighbor Project has just taken so long. Don’t get me wrong, I feel like I’ve accomplished so much for myself in this last year. Yet, in comparison to what many other people accomplish in a year, it doesn’t measure up. There is a constant battle within myself, in which I listen to Satan’s words telling me that I can’t do or shouldn’t do what God is urging me to do.
Can I not think of a better phrase than “to do?” Two simple words; two simple words that my five-year-old can read because they are so basic, but to act on them is mountainous.
These are the times when building one’s self up with the Holy Word, praise music, and prayer are the most dire. When you have found that your words fall short, just pray.
God will find you…me….in the words you(I) speak that aren’t as eloquent as those you(I) think you(I) could write.
When you need to do something, but you really don’t know how to start it, you pray for God’s intervention and He will answer.
