For some reason today I am feeling very restless. Things on my mind and don't know what to do/say or whether to do/say anything at all. It's difficult a lot of times, isn't it...to know when to speak and when to stay silent. Seems to me I've been too vocal lately, and it hasn't turned out so pretty. Thing is it wasn't as though I even realized my mouth was stirring things up - I only find out weeks later. So my current decision is to be quiet.
I guess I'm a bit like "Martha" (of Martha and Mary fame) today - I have a "crowd in my head." It's not so much that I'm worried about things, just concerned...knowing that most of what I'm concerned about is out of my hands. Yes, I've been in prayer about them this morning. Sometimes, though, it feels so much better to share them with a friend, but then once something is shared - you can't take it back. And not everything needs to be shared...or it doesn't need to be shared at this exact time.
Waiting is difficult. I imagine reading this blog today is difficult. :) So keeping it in has me restless...waiting to see how God will move has me restless...knowing that it may be months, years, before fruit is realized has me restless. Knowing that another person is in charge has me restless (I want to give my opinion!).
Where to find peace and hope...only in God - who is the One truly in charge.
"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." (Romans 15:13)
Overflowing with hope instead of a flood of words...sounds like Divine Intervention to me!
