I have to mention it. I am being “wooed”. I can just tell.
From the person of faith I bump into unexpectedly at the perfect time, who says just the right thing, asks the most insightful question, or offers a gentle suggestion.
To the patient’s mother who, after a night of conversation and prayer, produces a beloved devotional and presses it into my hands. It’s a good one. And fitting: Streams in the Desert. Have you read it?
To my mother-in-law who in her casual but significant way passes along a little Beth Moore paperback. If Beth Moore and my mother-in-law want you to get closer to God- look out! Those ladies and Jesus- they’re like this (my fingers crossed and raised).
And now there is this whole other “wooing” arena. Clearly God loves the internet and blogosphere 🙂 Ok- maybe not all of it. But He makes it pretty apparent to me that He can use a lot of it to accomplish His purposes. Who knew?
I know this is happening. I know He does this. I know He is up to something. I’ve been off-track. My priorities out of whack. There is this anxious churning in my stomach or heart or somewhere that seems only to calm when I sit down at my kitchen table and crack a certain Book.
It must sound more than a little self-centered to hear me say that I believe that Almighty God is trying to get me to spend more time with Him. Crazy, right? That is if you don’t know Him.
If you do know Him, I hope you have felt this. And if you don’t know Him yet, I’m pretty sure He wants you to know that you are so precious to Him. Yup, the God of it all wants to spend some time with you too.
Got woo? Tell me about it…
