Delighting myself….

Now that the Market’s over til next May, I’ve been thinking much on what direction Jordan’s Crossing is to take. I don’t wanna just jump into things without having some guidance and vision. From the beginning, I felt that God was leading in this venture, and I want to stay behind Him and not rush out doing my own thing. (I’ve done that enough times to know where it leads- at best, futility; at worst, disaster 😛 ).

So for this last week, I’ve just kinda gotten quiet. It was sorta an enforced quiet, to be honest. I had a hard time coming out of the busyness and march-ahead thought-processes which so much activity seems to lend itself to. But it was good! Just no internet for several days clears the mind and heart! Getting outdoors and away; listening instead of talking; searching and seeking instead of doing every other thing. It was good.

This morning, God spoke to my heart that Jordan’s Crossing wasn’t really about a business or a lot of doings. It’s about Him. His Life. Jesus’ Life in me. He took me to Psalm 37:4 “Delight yourself in the Lord; And He will give you the desires of your heart.”

Basically, He was saying to me that my ‘job’ is to delight myself in Him… and the rest will follow and naturally flow out from that. I don’t have to ponder, and wonder, and fret or worry. I just have to love Him and enjoy Him and find pleasure in Him. He’ll lead and give me His desires and directions. I’m so thankful for that anchor and re-focus! My heart has a smile as I’m writing this. 🙂

One of the things I’ve wondered and pondered about is how much spiritual stuff to share on the blog. But it’s easy. Just let Him give me the desires of my heart (and the words). If He gives me something spiritual to share, I will. If He gives me something on soap to share, I will. Lol. Things are only complicated and frustrating when I’m focused on me and on things. So easy and relaxed to live out from delighting in Him. I move from that ground often, but I can trust His Life to bring me back always. It’s good. Really good. 🙂

Have a great Saturday, y’all!
