Are you in a place where you've done everything you know to do, but nothing's actually accomplished?
Are you at the point where you've trimmed your to-do list to only a couple of items and they're still not completed?
My last post, about being stuck, was kinda like that, and I thought I was through that desert. It turns out I was only wading through an oasis; my mouth soon filled with the all-too-familiar sand.
Hey Lord? What's going on?
Silence. What do You want? I've done everything...
sigh. Now what?
Come back to My Word.
Two long journal entries; almost a month between those life giving thirst quenchers; and there was my answer.
On the page. In Luke 11:9--
"So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you."
I've been forgetting to knock!
Asking is easy -- any desire rolls off my tongue and can change at a moments notice. I asked -- I could see the door. It was given to me (as He said).
Seeking? Sure, I found it (as He said). Seeking is a little harder, an active looking until I find.
But knocking...I asked and sought for the door to be opened...
I pleaded, cajoled, whined, yet...the door was shut.
And it wasn't until I knocked...
Knocking requires a risk of being turned away. Knocking requires action by me, a physical raising of the arm with only one purpose in mind.
Asking and seeking I can do from my safe little perch, behind my four walls.
I have to put myself out there to knock.
He said "..'the door will be opened..."
NOW I'm doing everything.
Are you? What door are you waiting on?
