Today’s word is: Doubt
Doubt. I doubt that I’m on the right path. Could writing be where God is leading? I prayerfully, painfully consider giving it all up. My heart aches with the thought, but I see all the whispers of doubt in my mind and heart:
Your children need more of you.
Your husband needs more of you.
Your church needs more of you.
Your friends need more of you.
More of me that I don’t have. I doubt so many times that this is the right season for writing. I have so many questions and doubts. I feel the Lord’s leading. I see a small path where I’d like to walk. I see the undergrowth, but the path is clear. Not every step, but I stand at that edge of the forest with doubt.
Doubt that I’m good enough to continue to write.
Doubt that I have enough to pour into these words.
Doubt that this is really where He is leading.
I feel the urge to follow this path, but with each step I hear the whispers of doubt. I have tried to be still and find Him here this month. I find that I love to rest, and need to rest. Yet, I doubt that a life of rest is really available for me. So many balls in the air. So many whispers of doubt. So many questions.
I pray…..Lord, help me be wise tonight. Lord, help me be brave. Let me combat these doubts with truth from your word. I pray that you will give me a clear answer to the path to take. I pray that I will not lose sight of YOU through all of this. Quiet these doubts. Quiet these doubts in my heart. Amen.
