Last night I needed to write a blog post to you, but instead I sat and snuggled on the couch with my man, and we watched a few inspiring YouTube videos.
To his credit (and it’s his birthday today, by the way), he endured not one but two wedding proposal videos, with my head tucked into his shoulder, and maybe, just maybe, some tears when the girls said yes. (I’ll leave you to decide whether my tears or Matt’s. He’s gettin’ a bit softer about these things the older his little girl gets.)
Anyway, I did the same with Jesus.
Came downstairs after a long day and sat in front of the computer. I typed the two bold and underlined question marks that I always put at the top of the page where the hopefully amazing blog title is going to go.
Then I put the cursor under those question marks and just sat there.
I said, Lord, I need to say something meaningful on this page tonight, but really what I need is you.
Time to pray.
Time to enjoy the presence of Christ in my life.
Not producing. Not writing. Not giving or ministering or caring about others.
I just needed some shoulder time with the Creator.
It’s good to live a life that gives and gives and gives. But do we know when to stop and enjoy the One who sources the giving?
“Praise the Lord, O my soul. Praise the Lord.” (Psalm 104:35 NIV)
Hope you can sneak a few minutes with Jesus today.
