I feel both.
Yes, fall for me is way too overbooked. All the start-up stuff, all the expectations. Sometimes I want to run away and hide. At the same time, I can feel stale in my faith, in the daily routines. It’s as if I’m in a sailboat being tossed around by heavy winds and my rudder isn’t working.
I need a rudder.
We have a rudder: it’s the word of God.
Each morning I ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to me one character trait of the Trinity to focus on that day. This morning the thought that came to me was,
“He is the God who does new things.”
“Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth. I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” (Isaiah 43:18-19)
Two things became clear.
First, I need to focus daily on who He is rather than on who I am or am not.
Second, I need the encouragement of His word-daily. Just the thought that I can expect Him to do a new thing in my life this fall was such an encouragement to me this morning!
