It seems like it’s been so long since I posted here, but it’s not because I haven’t been thinking about it. Some of you who write may not understand this, but there’s nothing in me that needs to be written right now. Lots of life has happened over the course of the last month – two trips to Dallas to see the new grandbaby, cataract surgery, a little iritis in both eyes (and all the additional eye doctor visits that go with that) – and it has thrown me off any semblance of a writing schedule.
In the midst of all this non-schedule, though, Holy Spirit has been drawing me to Himself in different ways. I’m not dry at all, spiritually. I don’t even feel dry for writing. It’s more like the Lord is working into me to set my face to seek His face that I might come to know Him more. What I find right now is a much greater awareness of His presence with me throughout the day. I see new aspects of Him at work in me, but I have no unction to write about them.
Jesus is drawing me to a different, more intimate, place of knowing Him so that I can more clearly make Him known to others. This place is new for me, and I want to stay here with Him as long as it takes before He knows I’m ready for whatever is next. I suspect there will be a post here and there even in the midst of this season, though they won’t be as frequent as they have been. I hope you will use my “quiet” time to draw from some of the posts already written and recorded here. They may not be new, or even new to you, but they can still be a word in due season.
Psalm 27:4, 8 4 One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek, inquire for, and [insistently] require: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord [in His presence] all the days of my life, to behold and gaze upon the beauty [the sweet attractiveness and the delightful loveliness] of the Lord and to meditate, consider, and inquire in His temple. . . 8 You have said, Seek My face [inquire for and require My presence as your vital need]. My heart says to You, Your face (Your presence), Lord, will I seek, inquire for, and require [of necessity and on the authority of Your Word]. AMP
