I just don’t want to do it! No! I don’t like how it affects me, so I’m just saying… “no thanks!”
Can we really do that? Just say “no” to the God of the universe? Isn’t that breaking some law or rule or code? I mean, that seems a little gutsy… and a bit stupid. So, why do I feel I have the ability to do it?
You see… God is telling me to write on the topic of PRIDE and I know what’s gonna happen. You see, when God asks me to write on a specific topic, He works it out in me. It’s never just a quick write and I’m done… no. It is hard and grueling and painful and… yes, healing too.
Why can’t He ask me to write on the topic of having a ton of money… or having a metabolism of a hummingbird… or of being popular and loved? I mean, I’d have no problem taking as much time as needed to thoroughly research and write on these topics. However… that’s not how He works in MY life.
He uses my writing as a refining fire, of sorts, to make me face my issues and deal with them. He’s even sweet enough to provide LOTS of new opportunities to work through them. 🙂
Well… what I know is that God blesses obedience. So, I’m going to write this stupid talk on Pride and I’ll be tested and refined and put into situations to “highlight” MY pride issue. Ok, fine. I am going in. Cover me…
… and pray!
Maybe I’ll see you on the other side… :0
