You know the ones I mean. Those nudges that come from the Holy Spirit. Those gentle urges when God is trying to get our attention, but is not in a real hurry about it … yet.
The Holy Spirit is gentle, but also persistent. If times goes on and I keep ignoring those nudges, then God starts nagging me. He knows that eventually I will say yes.
It is as if God is saying – “Hey, I know you are a little hesitant about doing this, but you keep telling me you want to do my will and I am trying to tell you in a gentle way that this is my will. And I am not going to change my mind.”
God is patient. He waits. And keeps bringing His request back to me. And eventually I give in and do what it was that he wanted me to do in the first place. Then I write about it to let people know that our God is awesome.
So why don’t I just do His will to begin with?
I am writing about this because I have been receiving nudges lately. I think I am supposed to get a spiritual director. After all, I am a spiritual director so I should have one. Unfortunately they are few and far between.
So I kept procrastinating. And then recently my husband suggested that I get a spiritual director.
I have an appointment next week with someone whose name just “popped” into my mind.
Or it was nudged there.
Did I mention that our God is an awesome God?
