I've been busy preparing for the physical side of things for the conference-- products for the market, planning outfits, trying my hardest to master curling my hair with a curling wand (not happening...). I've realized the past few days that my heart needs some prep time too. It's been really easy to get caught up in the busyness and excitement of it all, but this week, I'm craving a little bit of quiet in my heart. There's not much rest around here lately-- there's a lot of chasing Silas, cleaning the house, prepping for the conference, working on DIY projects, and when I have a chance to sit, I'm usually playing on Instagram. Maybe you can relate to that. Do you ever feel like you just need some time to quiet your heart and breathe? To NOT be capturing every sweet moment for Instagram or working towards completing some to-do list? It's been quite some time since I've sat still and prayed without multi-tasking, or my mind racing in a million directions.
This past week, I read an Instagram comment that read, "So-and-so is a woman who hears from the Lord!' It caught my eye and I realized what a beautiful compliment that was. I got this great burden on my heart to be that kind of woman. But maybe what's getting in the way of that is simply that I'm not resting in Him? That my brain is too full of 'what to dos' and there's not enough room for His voice?
I had a completely different kind of post planned out in my head, but this is how it came out when I started to type. How do you find moments of rest during busy times? How do you clear your heart to hear His voice?
