Ok. I started writing a blog. I worked on it for about thirty minutes or so, and realized that my motive for writing it wasn’t love; it was more like revenge.
I love, and hate when God does that to me! I so badly wanted to write what I wanted to write, but NOOO! The Holy Spirit would not get off my back!
I thought it was a great story. I didn’t mention anyone’s name. I even made up a name for the town. I considered it a parable of sorts. At the end I was going to write something really clever about the moral of the story. It was going to be awesome! And with a little luck, a few people would recognize about whom and where I was writing. Just for a little extra jab.
All it boils down to is me not trusting God to handle every situation in my life. It boils down to me being vindictive, and trying to use the gift God has blessed me with to, underhandedly, take a jab at someone. Ugh! God never let’s me carry out my evil plans!
Seriously, I’m so thankful God has given me this platform, and to be able to share what He shows me through life experiences. I’m also thankful He allows me to use humor and to just be me. And I’m extremely thankful for that gentle whisper that keeps me from making a total rump of myself!
For whatever God says to us is full of living power: it is sharper than the sharpest dagger, cutting swift and deep into our innermost thoughts and desires with all their parts, exposing us for what we really are. Hebrews 4:12
