Day 06: Monkey Bars

Today’s Bible Verse “But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.” (Luke 12:48)

Today’s Question
What are you clinging to right now that you need to let go of in order to move forward in your life?

This is a really good question because when I generally take a look at myself, I can say I have pretty much surrendered every area of my life to God.

However, I have been feeling a sense of restlessness in a major area of my life (I cannot disclose what it is exactly until a decision is made).

When I talk about this area, I have been content on the way it has been going for a good, few years.

However, I have been expressing to my husband on how restless I have been feeling about it lately.

I have been feeling this way for about a month already and the feeling kinda just sprung up on me.

This particular thing has been my set of monkey bars -- holding on to it and not letting go to avoid a bad fall.

Because of this unrest, I have been asking God questions. I want to know if He put this in my heart because He wants me to give it up and commit myself to a big, big change that requires a huge leap of faith.

Right now, I do not know the answers but I am definitely searching His voice.


Today’s Challenge Describe your fears about taking a risk is calling you to take.

If what I mentioned in the previous question is indeed a risk is God is calling me to take, then I know I will be all right.

The big thing I fear is misreading His message, get all His directions wrong, get ahead of myself and act upon it.


Today’s Random Activities
  • Watched my usual favorite detective shows in the morning with my espresso.
  • Walked to over to the home of Mr. And Mrs. Waters. While walking I felt it was a great opportunity to pray to God to continually bless them. They are our second family and they are always so good to me and Robert.
  • Mama Waters cooked lunch. My goodness, it was delicious. I enjoyed eating food I missed back home.
  • Talked to them for about a couple of hours. That was really fun too.
  • Caught up with work the rest of the afternoon.
  • Worked out in the evening.
  • Another round of Forensic Files!
