Sometimes God Allows Sickness to get our ATTENTION!!!
I shared this with my fb family and freinds but also felt the need to share it on my blog.
Over the last few days I have been sick and at first glance, I was a tad bit upset because I was not allowed to work or enjoy my mom who came in from VA for a week to spend time with the family here in NC.
I felt the need to write a note because sometimes God will allow Sickness to get our Attention & Sometimes Sickness Can Be A Blessing In Disguise!
Please don't get me wrong, sickness doesn't come from the Father BUT he will (allow) it when he is seeking to get your attention.
When I first started feeling this come over me, I begin praying against it. My prayers were so ineffective :) After all, I've got too much to do. I don't want to be bound to this bed.
After a day of resting, the Lord begin to speak to me and share with me this, because you haven't listened and followed directions in certain areas that are very important to me, I have allowed this and now you have no choice but listen. Isn't it something when he puts us on punishment? lol After yielding to him I begin to clearly hear some of the things that I couldn't otherwise hear because I was so busy, busy, busy.
So on this day, I would like to encourage you to quiet your mind, body, spirit & soul because God desires to speak
(New Things) in addition to all of the other dreams that are there either being unlocked or awaiting to be unlocked.
There is always a FRESH NEW PLACE in God but at times we can not clearly hear him unless we are at a place of stillness.
Even for those who have a prayer life...Isn't it something how we rush into prayer and come out before we can hear him speak???
If there is a quickening in your spirit as to the contents in this article.... Please know that it is OKAY to Rest.
Rest.....quiet your soul and I rest assure that there are things that God will speak as it relates to your family, your carreer, your business, your ministry and more..... and it will be such a blessing to you to hear a Fresh Word of Direction.
I pray the same doesn't have to happen for you in order for God to deliver a blessing to you. LOL
It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn your statutes. Psalm 119:71
"Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light." Matthew 11:28-30
