Hot or Cold

Just a disclaimer before you read on, this is definitely a posting for women. You have been warned. Lol

Oh my goodness I have to admit I am at that time in my life. Maybe you have experienced it in your own life or maybe you are not there yet but I’m speaking of that time when I’m hot, no I’m cold, no I’m definitely hot back and forth back and forth. Yes it’s the dreaded word, do I dare say it menopause. Actually I believe I’m premenopausal because I refuse to believe I’m that old. Lol  Last night was a constant covers no covers night. I’m hot, I’m cold all night long and of course even in the middle of that I found the spiritual in it as I covered and uncovered for the umpteenth time I thought sometimes our walk with God is like this. I’m hot, I’m cold. Some days I feel so close to God and our fellowship is so sweet and connected and other days life gets in the way and I feel so far away from Him I couldn’t hear Him speak if He were to call out loud to me in a quiet room and yet I know it is not God who moved. Life is like that sometimes. We become so busy with the day to day things that we forget to spend the quiet time we so desperately need to hear the still small voice of the Lord. The other evening I found myself in that situation. A sweet woman was asking us to write whatever we felt the Lord was showing us to lie down. I tried so hard to hear Him but I could not. I so needed to be alone with Him to hear His voice.

1 Kings 19:11b – 12 The Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind and after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake; and after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice. Life can sometimes become like the wind, the earthquake and the fire and that is when I need to remember that I need that undivided quiet time with Him if I am going to hear that still small voice.  How about you?

Thank you Lord for teaching me. I so need it every single day. ;)
