I haven’t posted anything in a while and all this time I’ve been feeling as though I lost my way. I felt disconnected. No longer can I use the excuse about my just moving, having a new job, a new car, new bills and a new house. No, there’s something going on inside of me.
I’ve been reading the bible each day, praying, praising but still I feel like something’s missing. I feel as though I’m about to explode! It’s like fire shut up in my bones. I prayed and asked the Lord what was wrong with me. What is happening to me to make me feel this way? My answer is that I’m not doing what the Lord has called me to do.
Even though I’m reading my word everyday and singing praises to Him, I stopped writing which is what I’ve been called to do in this season. I was allowing the cares of this world to hold back that fire within me.
You too will feel like there’s fire shut up in your bones when you try to suppress the works of the Holy Spirit in your life. See the Lord wants to use us and blesses us with many gifts as He chooses. I can’t even begin to explain the feeling I have right now writing this post.
Lord, I come to you now with a repentant heart, asking you to forgive me for trying to shut down the gift you want to operate through me. Forgive me for focusing on the blessings instead of YOU, who freely gave them to me. I thank you for releasing the fire within me to do your Will. I pray and ask that you keep us doing the works you have given us to do. I pray that many others reading this post will be blessed and encouraged to not give up, and not quench your fire. I love you with all my heart and thank you for giving me another chance, in Jesus name, Amen.
