In one of my devotional “listening” times, it seemed the Lord said the following:
My child, you cannot learn My ways when you make rigid schedules!
I learned My Father’s ways during twenty-nine years of waiting.
Scripture does not give you many details of My life as a carpenter.
And perhaps at times, I may have asked “was this the time?”
However, through these years I learned obedience.
I talked to My Heavenly Father during My workday
as well as in the evening hours.
I am more interested in you being obedient, molded by Me,
than in seeing you do many activities.
I truly want to help you learn to relax.
Actually I “heard” this on Wednesday and I took the Lord’s admonition to rest seriously on Thursday and Friday. My rigid schedules were forgotten and the days flowed easily and smoothly. God has a great sense of humor and I accomplished work, without agitation and had more tranquility and peace. I stopped striving and allowed Him to take more control.
