Hi guys, I hope your thanksgiving was great!
I just wanted to honestly write about where I’m at right now, and what the Holy Spirit has been showing me.
Lately, I have felt more and more like this blog is a chore. More of a duty than a passion, more of just something to get done instead of something to invest in and enjoy. I have come face to face with these feelings, leaving me in tears and asking Jesus why it feels this way, again (it has happened multiple times).
Call it what you want—getting burnt out on ministry, becoming legalistic. But one thing the Lord showed me is that I always get this way when I am trying to do things in my own power, according to my own understanding. When I do this, writing for the blog feels heavy, burdensome, and oppressive.
I need the Holy Spirit to work in and through me on this blog—or else it is no longer the Spirit’s work, and is just the rambling of some legalistic girl.
I need to allow Jesus to lead, guide, and work through me on here, or I will always get burnt out.
Jesus’ yoke is easy; His burden is light (Matthew 11:28-30). I’m the one making it heavy.
As I continue blogging here on this blog, please pray that I would do so by God’s leading and power—and that my passion for simply praying over these Chibok girls and other prayer requests would remain hot instead of growing cold. Thanks, friends.
