A Longing.. A Whisper..

RachelTemple.com

Sometime ago a seed was planted. That seed was a longing to write.

I heard the whispers.

I prayed.

I wrote.

I studied His word.

I encouraged.

I went to conferences.

I met amazing women of God who loved, encouraged and mentored.

I spoke at different events.

Then……

The season of life changed.

Doubt crept in that I couldn’t do it.

A month ago, I sat across the table with a friend over a late night dinner. We were discussing what God was doing in our life. I confided in her over chips-n-salsa about my writing. I told her I didn’t know what He wanted me to do with it. Really, I was questioning it. As of this moment my heart is still not sure.

One thing I do know is this. During the Gideon Bible study, I laid it down and handed it back over to God. This wife, mama and Jesus girl may not get every punctuation in the right place or type the most flowing piece of writing art. I just know that the longing is there. I don’t know what it looks like. I may not may ever make the “top ten” list. I just know I need to lean in to Him.

So with that whisper that was planted from long ago, I am seeking with all my heart.

Just Breathe

My fingers are typing words while taking in a Deep Breath. Go ahead and breath too. Deep breaths are good for the soul.  I understand. Life can take us all for some twists and turns. Our family has been on this ride for the last seven months.

Some days it’s hard to wonder which way to go. It is a long path, you know. The road gets dusty. We fall down. We stand back up on our two feet. And walk.

We don’t always have it together. But God does. Let me say that again. God holds all things together. He says so in His word. {Colossians 1:17}

You like us may have faced some challenges over the last few months. Maybe a seed of doubt has crept up in your heart. At first feelings of peace washed over you. It brought great joy. Or maybe you still have peace over whatever situation you are facing. We have felt peace, joy and doubt all in different ways.

Let’s look up. Take a breath. Fix our eyes on the one who holds all things together.

Breath by Breath. Moment by moment. Walking and Praying.
