“Quit striving” was the admonishment I received from the Lord during my sabbitical. And I’ve been pondering it since. And you might be asking why I’m pondering vs. putting into practice. It’s because I am a slow processor. And I don’t take God’s words to me lightly.
Interestingly enough, as I was getting ready to write this, I came across a post on striving I had started 4 years ago, before I made this blog public. A reoccurring theme in my life I guess. It shouldn’t come as a surprise…
all or nothing
How is someone like me going to stop striving?
And what does it look like?
How do I bring what is so much a part of me into the workings and presence of God?
My intense driven personality lends itself to work just as hard at not striving.
But isn’t that defeating the purpose?
Which is why I need to ponder this.
Not by might, nor by power but by my spirit says the Lord.
Trying to quit striving in God’s spirit. On the Journey. Jackie
