It’s been a busy August, and September looks to be just as crazy. Since my last blog post, I’ve moved across the country, attended two conferences, started editing the rough draft of Isaiah’s Daughter, and this weekend will help my daughter’s family move into our basement.
All of these are fabulous things, real and true blessings! But have you ever felt like you’ve poured out everything in your emotional “pitcher” and there’s just not a drop of energy left? I’m not quite there, but close.
A Friend Spoke to My Heart
During her acceptance speech, she shared about the “dry” season she experienced while writing that manuscript and how she had to rely on the Lord’s provision to complete the work. Her story spoke to my heart. (Make sure your sound is at its highest–sorry for the poor sound quality.)
Ezekiel’s Dry Bones
When I got home from that conference, I read Ezekiel 1:1-10 for myself and allowed God to speak to me.
“Mesu, can I make your dry bones live again?”
I had to answer Him honestly–as Ezekiel did: “You alone know, Lord.” I wasn’t sure–I’m still not sure–I have the energy to write, to speak, to unpack boxes, and to do all that needs doing in the month of September.
I’m trusting our God to breath life into my dry bones.
Are Your Bones Dry?
Maybe you’re feeling the same way. Can God breathe life into your marriage, your job, your parenting, your church? Only He knows. But I encourage you to ask Him…and then listen for the gentle Wind of His Spirit.
That’s what I’ll be doing today, this weekend, this month. Listening. Breathing Him in. Waiting for dry bones to live again.
