Living Free – Part 4

Those of you who have been tracking with this blog know that our family is walking through some challenging times with regards to our faith.  If you want to see the rest of the conversation, you can read these posts in this order:

  1. Living Free – Doing Life Differently
  2. He Loves Me!
  3. In His Steps

boy_jesus_in_the_workshop_zoomThis morning I was listening to anotther of the podcasts from “The God Journey” called “Openly, Honestly, Freely” and I want to quote something Brad said that was transformational for me:

“God came into the world as a little baby, and then took the time to grow up. And the world was all going wrong, and things needed to be fixed, and God was living normal, everyday life, in one locale. I’ve never heard one single sermon validating that that’s beautiful, and part of God’s plan”

I found that so freeing – it encourages me to not panic about what’s going on around me, but to continue to try and tune in to what God is wanting me to do right now. Sometimes, the most important thing in my day is going to be cooking a nutritious dinner for my family. Other times, He may call me to change the world. I will never miss an opportunity if I’m walking with him. By striving, pushing, driving, and living out of guilt and struggle, I will miss MANY opportunities that God has set up for me.

We’re still in a bit of a lost place, and Tom’s business is going through a rough place, as well, so we really are in a situation where we must rely on God.  And I’m peaceful.  I’m working to fulfill what I know is my responsibility, and giving up what I know has to be His.

I trust that will be a much better scenario than my usual one of having to have control over everything.

I have loved walking to these podcasts.  I’ve listened to a year’s worth over the past few months, and they are feeding my soul in deep places.  Makes it worth facing the nasty weather we’ve been having! 🙂

Happy Walking!
