Sentenced

A link or two in my inbox convicted me this morning. Again. As I watched a video yesterday morning at a meeting, the gnawing began.



I knew it was time to rearrange a bit. Push a few things to the corner and dust off another.

Small steps are better than no steps, I whisper to myself.  But small steps aren’t enough to fill your soul, my heart shouts.

And I’m caught, twisted in the net of needs, responsibilities and musts—a net that tangles and strangles desire, dream, inspiration and creativity.

Until Conviction cuts them lose.

I’m once again sentenced. (Pun intended.)

God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us. Ephesians 3:20 The Message
