This is 5 Minute Friday. Where I practice my writing skills for five minutes and try not to over correct my stuff. Just everything…real. I am linking up with Gypsy Mama Blog.
Where the rubber meets the road.
This week, I have had my share of grit moments. You know the kind where you know you are being tested, but also God allows it because He knows it is going to make me better.
“Really?? Could we just skip this part? Haven’t I learned enough in this category?”
These are the hard places where I hear this voice, that even though I want to ignore all the wisdom of past learnings…I know I need to heed the voice of the Holy Spirit. He says…”remember that I love you and know exactly what all is on your plate and even how it got there.”
He is what it is all about. not me.
I am not having a bad day just by happenstance. Really, in the bigger scheme of things…its not a bad day. I realize that. But these are the moments when the rubber means the road and Jesus finds out just how much I have been paying attention in my Bible reading and devotion time with Him. Am I going to be a doer of the Word and not just a hearer?
Putting it all into practice.
These are the grit places.
2 Corinthians 4:18 “So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.”
Great! Well-said. So often I too … disappointed that I still haven’t learned and thankful that He cares enough to keep teaching me!
We all need the grit to be a doer of the Word and not just a hearer.
