I had big plans today. A huge to-do list, my own agenda.
I rushed home after lunch with a friend to start:
I got home, and full of anxiety (brought on by myself) to get these things done, I stopped.
I felt the LORD beckoning me to lay down my agenda for the day, and be with Him.
So I did.
I grabbed my keys, locked the front door, and took off for a walk.
Left the chores, the house, the studying, the writing, for another time.
Because after all, when the Sovereign Lord asks you to stop and walk with Him, shouldn't you?
I spent an hour outside, walking, enjoying His presence (in creation and in my heart), praying and listening. I still have a to-do list, but the stuff on there doesn't seem as important.
When God, our Creator, asks me to spend time abiding, I should go. When our Heavenly Father who gives me 24 hours in a day, asks me to slow down and spend one of those hours with Him, I should listen.
Because after all, isn't being a daughter of the King enough?
So no Meditation Monday. No insights from the Sermon on the Mount. No "my agenda". Nope, not today.
Today . . . just time with my Maker.
