He is better. Day 1.

If you missed yesterday’s post, read that first. Each post this week will build on one another.

Have you started a Covid-19 journal yet? If not, start there. Go and order a fancy journal on Amazon if that would motivate you. I usually just grab an old notebook. Staple some loose paper together if that’s all you have. After this is all over, you will be glad you kept a journal during this time.

In my post yesterday I talked about how I came to a place where I realized Jesus is better than knowing the answer to my ‘why‘. Each day this week I encourage you to think through one of the ‘how’s‘ I shared.

Let’s start with prayer.

Pray. I recognize that on this side of the struggle, it’s easy to make the process sound easy and simple. My journey to surrendering my ‘why’ was anything but simple. It was painful and confusing. But like I mentioned, part of the reason it took me so long to surrender my ‘why’ is I didn’t realize my ‘why’ had become a blind spot. So let me spare you years of pain and hardship. Ask God “Am I allowing my ‘why’ to keep me from experiencing the fullness of who you are?” God has already shown us through the cross he will go to the greatest lengths to bridge the gap between him and his people. If you ask with a sincere heart, I PROMISE you God will reveal your blind spots to you. 

Spend some time today asking God to reveal your blind spots to you. Maybe it isn’t your ‘why‘ that keeps you from experiencing the fullness God has to offer, maybe something else is creating a blind spot. Be patient. Be persistent. Be open. Be expectant. God will speak to you.

“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you….” James 4:8.

More tomorrow,

Lisa
