Random thought #2187
Disclaimer: I am religious and believe in God. I realize not everyone who reads this does. However, I believe we all have a higher power or something we hold to that resonates in our lives like this experience with me.
I was recently asked by someone to take a break from writing. There was some anger from me, some push back. I was frustrated. Writing was cathartic for me, a form of therapy. Plus, I love telling stories and writing poetry. It resonates with me and also provides a temporary escape. As you can imagine, I accepted the request begrudgingly.
I couldn’t understand why He (God) would ask me to give up something so special to me.
Fast forward to last evening. I was at a meeting, and someone said something that was an answer. They said that sometimes we need to “take a break from (or remove) distractions and focus on Him.”
I pondered on that phrase for the rest of the night and into today.
Sometimes we’re asked to do things we don’t want to do. Sometimes, we hear a little voice or feel a prompting we don’t understand. Sometimes we only need to look, listen, ponder and just do. Perhaps the reason will be revealed to us later and we’ll be the better for it.
That’s my random thought for today.
