Who Does That?

in Rest,Soul

I’m headed to Blissdom this weekend.

I’m super excited about it, and  I don’t even have a ticket!

I booked my room, made my plans, and intentionally DIDN’T  buy a ticket.

Wait.  What?  Going to Blissdom without a ticket?

On purpose?

Why?

Who does that?

 

Here’s why:

When the talk of Blissdom coming to a hotel just a few miles from home started, I was crazy excited.  A chance to finally go!  No travel expenses.  No travel hassles!  I booked my room right away, and started saving money for my ticket.

Then God started doing His thing… You know the one where He gently nags you with an idea that just keeps coming up and he doesn’t give up until you give in?  

Yeah.  That.

“Go to the conference.  Without a ticket.  

Give yourself time to process and pour through all I’ve been pouring into you.  

Give yourself time to write.  

Give yourself time to rest.  

Give yourself time to listen to ME.”

And then He gave me my OneWord for the year:

Permission. 

Have you ever done something like this?

Given yourself time?

 

Permission to rest and listen?

 

 

Something to think about…

Wow… yes, I so completely relate to this. God is nudging and urging me in a new direction and just asking me to trust Him. I pray you have a fantastic time with Him!!! (and I know you are going to be utterly blessed for your obedience.) Awesome. 🙂
