Ecclesiastes 5-6 B

“Talk is cheap, like daydreams and other useless activities. Fear God instead.” 5:7 

I want to make this into a bumper sticker and slap it on the back of my car. I do a lot of daydreaming, blabbing and busy work in my relationship with God. I dwell on what’s missing or what could be better. I journal on and on about what should be, what could be, or how things use to be.

Recently my husband and I have been talking moving forward on something we feel like God is setting before us. I’ve been hiding a lot behind “praying about it” and “waiting for His timing”. If Jesus is the type of person to roll his eyes (and my goodness, he deserves to be), he has certainly done so with me. It’s time to stop talking the concept to death and just do it. My reverence and love for the Lord is strong and deep; he anchors my ideas and desires. Why do I get in my own way of obeying him?

Is there something you’ve always wanted to do? Write a book, start a ministry, step into a new career, give up something hard? What’s stopping you from following through?
