Doing What He Wants

"Let each look to himself and see what God wants of him and attend to this leaving all else alone."
Henry Suso

It is one of those brief seasons where there are more things to do than hours in my day; more weighing on my mind than moments to just be still and give them to the Father.

I am going to take a week away from blogging. I find myself drawn to the computer when I get overwhelmed rather than doing what I know really needs to be done. I must do what He has given me to do because I know it is always for my good.

I will see you soon.



  1. I hope your time away is very productive which will be a blessing indeed!

  2. love to you :-)
    i understand.

  3. I so know what you mean. I am over booked and I too find myself drawn to the computer.

  4. Yes probably more of us than admit it spend too much time on the computer, I know I want to read and comment on my friends blogs, and post new ones myself.
    Trusting you will also find time to 'rest in Him'. God Bless

  5. Enjoy your time away, Linda.
    Praying it will be very
    special. Come back refreshed,

  6. Isn't it amazing? I do the same thing! Then I feel guilty.

  7. I can relate to the busyness of the season! I just can't seem to keep up right now.

    Interestingly enough I've been so busy there's not been much time for the computer. I know when that happens... I am Busy!! You know that is not like me. ;-)

    When you return, let's connect and get our plan going!!!

    Rest and refresh during this time!

  8. Oh how I understand. All too well. Enjoy the respite. Breathe deeply.

  9. praying for you Linda. The children and I went to a place yesterday and enjoyed God's wonderful outdoors. It was so good for my soul.... spirit.

    Love ya!

  10. oh Linda, thank you. for visiting my quiet place. for hearing my heart... and for not judging me. i hope you have such fun with the grands! you are so wonderful, Linda. love to you. emily.

    ps. yes, my dad is amazing.

  11. Congratulations
