Four things helped me:
1. Stating them, facing them, and turning them over to God in prayer. I imagined each one and pictured myself dumping them on God’s lap for Him to sort through.
2. Reading God’s word. God led me to these Scriptures this morning:
Trust in the LORD and do good;
3. Praise music. I came to my office and turned on Tim Hughes.
“You will find me longing after you.”
“Every breath belongs to you.”
“You are my First Love.”
These are just a few of the words that are speaking to my heart.
4. Remembering. How God worked. How He’s working still. I thought about the article I wrote Saturday, and the two amazing people he gave me to interview. On one of them I contacted someone who I’d met briefly, as I was talking to her she said, “You really need to talk to my husband.” He was a key person in men’s ministry in pregnancy care centers … and I had no idea! I also reread an email I received this weekend. “Thank you for writing My Life, Unscripted.” Yes, God is guiding my writing. He leads me. He gives me words when I’m blank. Sure things could be better … if I focus on numbers and such, but again I need to remember that’s up to God to figure out. I just need to be faithful to what he asks me to do.
