When the Israelites were fleeing Egyptian bondage under the leadership of Moses (with God's direction), Moses said, "The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still." (Exodus 14:14) There is a time to be still, to stop struggling in our own strength, let go and let God.
There is also a time to move on. when it was time to cross the Red Sea, God said to Moses, "Why are you crying out to Me? Tell the Israelites to move on." (Exodus 14:15) There is a time to be still and a time to move on.
Where are you today? Is God saying, "Be still" or is He telling you to move on? We must be sensitive and listen to Him. For some of us it is a time to be still, quit struggling. For others it is a time to move on. God is telling some to move on, leave something behind - a relationship, a job, a place of service, etc. We must listen and obey. Obedience brings peace.
Serving Him,

  1. WOO HOO!! You go girl!! WELCOME to the blogosphere my precious forever friend. All I can say is "it's about durn time!" (You're cringing right now wishing I'd left the "durn" out, aren't you? GRIN)You have way too much talent, spiritual giftedness, and godly wisdom not to be blogging. I know God gives you lots of opportunities to use His gifts in the body of Christ as you teach Sunday School and lead Bible studies (and I am richly blessed to be a partaker of that right now). BUT - you will reach new people, make new friends, have opportunities for prayer, exhortation and encouragement through the vehicle of the internet that you'd have never had otherwise. It's amazing! I pray God's richest blessings upon you as you write and upon all who read your "ponderings." MARCH ON, SISTER.
