Ugh. Guh. Blegh.
That about sums up how I feel about this last bit of study…so. Over. It.
Over the assignments.
Over the essays.
Over the conflicting due dates.
Over word counts.
Over typing in my dang username every ten seconds!
Guhhhh – so over it all now!
I am well and truly bordering on the edge of Christmas and holiday brain! Dangerously close to jumping over that line and leaving it all behind…but I won’t! Don’t worry – two or three more weeks of writing and typing and reading stuff & it will have all been worth it 🙂
Amongst all the drudgery that is study at the moment, God has blessed me with a few spare moments to listen to some podcasts, & I have thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated that. Something that really stood out to me was the pastor saying that you don’t have to fully understand what God is calling you to in life in order to obey immediately. The layout, the path and the instructions can come later, in His timing – but the act of dropping what we think we’re supposed to be doing to follow this call can be done right then and there. Like Elisha in the Bible. When God called him to learn from Elijah and be a witness for God, he left his farming life and went, without really knowing the deal. He just knew God had a plan.
I like this thought a lot, because so often I feel like I hesitate too long and try too hard to weigh it all up in my mind when God calls me to do something. Sometimes it might be to ‘stay’ or it might be to ‘go’ or it might be ‘say this’ or ‘do that’, but instead of obeying, I pause. And I know I have missed opportunities in the past because of this. I guess it’s just an ongoing lesson I learn, and I’ll never be awesome at it, but God won’t stop leading me 🙂
Side note – if anyone is looking for a completely hilarious waste of time, the app ‘bitstrips’ is classic!
Have a beautiful week, be blessed.
