Lately, I have just been feeling so restless.
Creatively. Spiritually. Emotionally. Physically. And I have no idea why.
It just comes on me in a flash and all of a sudden I can feel it. I want to move. I want to create.
I can tell that my creative juices are wanting to flow free, that there’s a ton of books floating in my head, the words flash across my mind so clearly and succinctly. I can’t write them down fast enough, they just flip through my mind at such a quick pace.
When I start to feel restless, it usually happens when creativity is flowing freely inside of me. Restlessness and creativity move hand in hand in me, like a fine symphony or a fine ballet. They just move and bend and flow together. And it is beautiful.
When I feel restless, it’s then that I get inspired. It’s then that I feel God start to move. And He does move me. I can’t sit still. I can feel myself need to do something. I need to move. I need to create.
Usually I write or a I go for a long drive in my car or I pull out my guitar. Restlessness blooms and blossoms creativity in me. Restlessness stretches me and makes me grow. Restlessness makes me move.
And usually restlessness sends me on a trip to Volcano.
Ah, Volcano. I am so itching to visit there again soon but that’s another blog for another time.
When I start to feel this way, I know it’s God speaking to me because He shows up and moves me even more. He calls to me and He reminds me that all the gifts I’ve been given come directly from Him. I cannot take credit for any gift I have. He has blessed me with them Himself. And I am SO grateful.
When do you feel restless? And how do you respond to that feeling? Do you see the ways that God moves through you in the gifts that He’s given you? Do you see how the feeling of being restless actually stretches you and moves you to grow closer to Him? He wants you to use the gifts He’s blessed you with. So let him.
These are the things I’ve been thinking about this week.
I have felt so restless lately and I feel my creativity starting to flow. I feel the urge to write and write some more. I feel the urge to head to Volcano for a visit. I feel the urge to pull out my guitar.
And I am so grateful that God has made me restless.
I hope that I let the gifts that He has given me bring honor and glory to Him for those gifts are from Him and Him alone. They have nothing to do with who I am.
And I hope you will let Him use the gifts He’s given you to bring honor and glory to Him, too. He has given you these gifts, my friend.
Let Him bless you and stretch you with them, too.
Have a wonderful weekend.
