So, it is now past the middle of the month of July and I can only come up with one post. This is bad. Just bad. Why? Well, I had a busy schedule. This week though, I declined activities that need me to give up my “ME” time. I know. It sounds kind of selfish, but it is the only way I could keep the balance in my schedule. I’d die of exhaustion (literally) if I keep this up. Besides, I don’t want to wait skip a month not writing even a single article.
In all fairness to me, I tried to write stuff. All of them went to the drafts group and would have to wait until I could finish them. I finished a pending post where I composed a kind of testimonial for a friend’s blog. But that’s about it. This is all I came up with. I am not going to apologize though. Although I’m rooting for at least 3 posts per month, allow me to use the excuse “Creativity takes time.” This month, I prioritize quality over quantity.
I remember one conversation I had with an artist friend. “Don’t rely on inspiration to start working on your craft. Work on your craft until inspiration comes.” He said. That is what I did; I took my friend’s advise. I wrote and wrote and wrote. Some I was able to save on this blog as a draft, the others, well, they flew away to oblivion with the notepad application as I turned off the computer.
Enough of the update. Let’s go to the meat of this post. The thing I intended to talk about.
It’s a new season for me. I admit that I am not getting any younger. This is just me, but I do think it is time for me to start building a family. Of course, before I go on building a family, the search for “The Wife” is on. God has used the last chapter of my life, and it taught me well. Oh my! I’ve said countless prayers so that I could finally meet her already.
To cut the story short, I kind of met someone already. (well…sort of, but I’m not going to give details. Sorry.) I am treading very carefully as you may have noticed. Making sure that I don’t cross any boundaries, say any word that I can’t back up with action, or even put my proverbial “best-foot” forward. Don’t get me wrong, I tell God how I feel about this woman and I genuinely ask for His leading. This time I let go of the controls and literally gave it to God’s hands. I am patiently waiting for God’s instruction. This time I am not going ahead of Him. I have my standards when it comes to choosing women but I’ve learned to trust God’s better standard and a better plan so I’m sure that whoever God chooses for me will be someone attractive physically and spiritually. I’m excited.
Right now, it’s a season of waiting, seeking and praying for me. I know God is moving. I know that He is arranging and lining stuff up for me. That thought alone inspires and captivates me. Until the time that God says “Go!” then I am staying here right where I should. Since a wife is a gift from God, I will let Him prepare the gift, until He deems it ready for me to receive it. I am sure that whoever God presents to me, she is good, perfect and pleasing…
It is now past the middle of the month of July and I can only come up with one post. This is good. No! It’s great! Why? Well, In spite of the busy schedule, God made a way to give me something to write about. This isn’t my “ME” time. This is “WE” time. One on one. Me and God. I’d die of exhaustion (literally) if I keep these things to myself. Besides I don’t want to skip a minute not being in His presence.
God, thank You for this new season. I trust that You are teaching me new things. I am ready to learn. Guide me, Lead me, and help me choose what path to take in this new journey. Thank You that you want your people to live their life to the full. I know that this is You moving. I love you Dad.
