Do I want adventure or not? Am I after safe secure and satisfying? I wonder. I want to wander. To open up my day. To let God have his say. Where would I go, what would I do? God, what would a day off spent with you be like?
I’m trying to think if there has ever been a time when I’ve said to God, “here’s my day, it’s all yours”.
Disappointingly no. Possibly parts of days, fractions or even minutes where I’ve said “Lord lead me, I’m open to you let’s go on an adventure” but no, not a whole day. Never.
I’ve got to ask myself why? Why the flipping heck not? I’m someone who wants God to lead me and he does, I know I’m walking in his purpose for my life, absolutely; but I’ve never thought to hand him my day and leave the agenda totally up to him. Ever.
I remember watching an interview of a guy who’d prayed for people in the supermarket after acting on a whisper from the Holy Spirit; and as a result someone who was deaf heard for the first time. I thought, “wow I’d love to do that”, but never acted on it. Never really been intentional about it. Never set aside time to pray or booked in a day.
Quite frankly, what am I waiting for???
“He told them, “You don’t get to know the time. Timing is the Father’s business. What you’ll get is the Holy Spirit. And when the Holy Spirit comes on you, you will be able to be my witnesses in Jerusalem, all over Judea and Samaria, even to the ends of the world.”
Acts 1:7-8 MSG
