Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find;knock,
and it will be opened to you.
I find myself lacking for something and wonder if it is because I didn’t ask.
I find myself messing things up and wonder if it is because I didn’t seek his guidance first.
I encounter a closed door, turn and walk away and wonder if it didn’t open because I didn’t knock.
I remember a time when Andy went away to a cross country camp. It was a wilderness camp where you slept in tents, did a lot of trail running and a lot of outdoor activities. At that point in time, he wore his watch 24/7/365. He was NEVER without his running watch. When I picked him up at the end of the week he had this horrible sunburn (complete with blisters) in the spot where his watch should have been. When I asked what happened he said his watch band broke on Monday morning, he was without his watch all week and didn’t have sunscreen to put on that spot. I told him I was sure SOMEONE would have had sunscreen, why didn’t he ask? He said he didn’t think about it.
That is the way things are sometimes…we just don’t THINK about asking…or seeking…or knocking.
In recent weeks, I had reached the point where I wondered if I should continue this blog. I was at a crossroads. Continue with this blog or not? Does anyone get anything out of what I write? What WAS the point?
Then after attending a retreatI came to realize that I am supposed to continue blogging.
So I am thinking…
and I am asking, seeking and knocking
for him to direct me in the way I should go.
Sometimes, it may be quiet while I walk this path…
And at other times I may be a fountain of words.
But for now…I will wait…and see what is around the bend.
And you? Are you waiting on his direction to lead you somewhere?
