Calm Down #hewillnotgivememorethanicanbare
I look at some of my fellow bloggers, and want want they have. A nice full time blog, family, career, books, clothes, etc…… Sometimes I even want to give up blogging. Then the quote Lysa Terkeurst mentioned in her book “Becoming More Than a Bible Study Girl,” pops in my head. “I am not equipped to handle what they have both good-and bad.” Let’s be honest, I can not handle a family, full time school schedule, full time blog schedule (posting, sponsors,ads, photography), part time work schedule, or publish a book right now. Keywords, right now!!!
John 16: 12-15
12 “I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. 13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth.He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. 14 He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you. 15 All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you.”
I know that the lord has a great plan for my life. I know that my blog is apart of my ministry, but it’s okay to not have it all right now. I love that Jesus will not give me more than I can bare. He knows me better than anyone, and for him to hold onto his blessings until I am fully equipped to handle them is by far the best thing He has ever done. Yes, my fellow bloggers may have blogs that are popping, but I am not equipped to handle what someone else has. I am equipped to handle what God has given to me! I rather be patient for my overflow, than be overloaded and weary. I rather have peace, than be anxious. I rather seek God for direction, than try to take matters into my own hands. I rather be Le’nae, than anyone else. I rather receive what God has for me, than go off of what He has given someone else! I am going to calm down, and do what I do best; spread His light!
