For the past few days, I had been feeling like I was in a rut when it comes to writing. I don’t know if it’s because I was trying to force myself to be on some type of schedule and not letting the spirit just flow or if this is just part of the process. Last Friday, as I was trying to prepare content for this week, I was looking at my computer screen like “Hey…Whatcha doin’?” and it was looking back at me like “Girl…Waiting on you!” My mind was blank. And the truth is…I was just tired and it was okay! But for some reason, I felt like I needed to get stuff done.
I don’t know why it’s so hard to admit, especially for us women that we’ve reached our capacity and need to lay or sit ourselves down somewhere…LOL! Why do we feel the need to be superwomen? But thank God, I was quickly reminded of the fact that He’s got me! I wasn’t missing anything and I wasn’t in a race. My only obligation was to be in alignment with His Spirit. I didn’t have to try and “make things happen” out of my fleshly need or desire to feel “accomplished.” I just needed to flow with the Holy Spirit even if that meant that I would spend the next few days reading and relaxing instead of writing!
So, I happily surrendered my imaginary cape and thigh-high superhero stiletto boots and chose to rest in God’s very real and very capable hands. Ah…the joys of being a child of God! I closed that laptop and skipped my little self right on over to my sofa, and settled in for an afternoon movie that ended up watching me.
Love you, Fam! Until next time…Smooches:)
