... to readers of Building His Body ~
Among the things I pray for concerning writing this blog is that the Lord will guide me to say neither too much or too little—knowing that I'll not always clearly discern His guidance. I also pray that no matter what I write, and how imperfect it is, that the Lord will nonetheless use it in the lives of readers to draw them closer to Him.
It does make life easier to write posts in advance, on those rare occasions when my schedule demands it. But I try to most often write about what the Lord is showing me day to day, with the intent that posts stay fresh and relevant, and that replies to comments are more in touch.
Recently, it seems that rather than me discerning clear thoughts from the Lord's Word, I am simply seeing more of Him (and myself)—in ways that can make my soul ache. While the Holy Spirit translates "groanings which cannot be uttered" into prayer, groanings don't always translate as easily into coherent blog posts. Tuesday was one such post, while I cheated a little on Monday and didn't manage to frame a post for Wednesday.
I ask your patience and indulgence if I go through a season of sounding less down to earth than I'd like, as I work to find the time to cooperate with the Holy Spirit and know the words to share with you.
I'm grateful if I have your permission to continue being candid. Remaining transparent is something the Lord seems to ask of me. I hope I make it look easy. : )
