Doing Nothing–With God — 14 Comments

  1. Karen what a beautiful reminder to allow the love of God and His healing balm to replenish our souls if we just slow down. This is a message that will never get old and one that will always inspire us to commune with Jesus. Thank you for writing from your heart.

    • Thank you, Sandy. I’m happy to be reminded as well. How blessed we are to know that God IS!

  2. This has been one of my very favorite verses of scripture ever since I can remember~literally!! I focus on this verse a lot and it really helps! thanks for sharing your view~I agree. Margaret

  3. Hi Karen, I love that verse, but sometime have a hard time putting my to do list aside You really got my attention by saying how we can enjoy God while doing nothing. I look forward to doing nothing with Him.

    • Thanks, Pam. I understand what you’re saying about putting aside our to-do lists. I face that challenge too, but this year I’m trying to spend more moments with God each day. When I do so everything is so much better! I hope your trip to Bahrain was wonderful. I’m eager to hear about it.

  4. Good one Karen. You’ve actually stumbled onto something here. When I have writers block and can’t think of any new ideas for my own blog, I just relax and observe nature and my surroundings. I have learned that all truth is parallel that for every natural truth, there is an equal and corresponding spiritual truth. Its like when you are writing and you use the two tracks method by giving an example in the natural and then give a spiritual and biblical example to make your point. I created a blog the other day because of a speed bump while sitting at Starbucks. Sometimes my mind goes crazy with all the ideas that God puts in my head. It’s awesome. Many times I just sit and take in the fellowship with God. Before you know it, I’ve sat outside Starbucks for a couple hours not realizing how long I’d been there. Thank you Jesus. This method of observing my surroundings is where I get most my ideas for my writing. Fun. Good blog Karen.

    • Thanks so much, Jim. Isn’t it amazing how quickly the time passes and how refreshed we become when we simply sit and commune with God?

  5. Hi Karen-
    I just read several of your blogs that I had missed. I particularly enjoyed this one. I agree, sometimes we foeget to just “be” wih God without an agenda.

    Good reminder!

    • Thanks, Bev. I appreciate your reading my blogs and commenting. Hope all is well in your corner.
