I was reminded of something earlier this week. What was re-brought to my attention is something incredibly rudimentary, but crucial in maintaining upward momentum in spiritual progression. I was becoming overly concerned about covenants and determining whether a message was coming from God, so much so that my intense focus on these things was actually pushing God out of focus.
A gentle reminder from the Lord came earlier this week that he’s still there… waiting. He’s waiting for me to talk with him, but not about my incessant demands or concerns. Rather, he’s waiting for me to talk with him as a loving son who just wants to talk with his Dad.
Whether, or when, or if, the Lord wants me to be involved in the LDS remnant movement or any religious group for that matter at the present time is still shrouded in obscurity. I do have vague instruction for the future, but that doesn’t necessarily calm my anxiety for the present.
Despite my anxieties, which the Lord doesn’t seem to want to resolve, the thing my Father in Heaven seems to want most right now is to strengthen and fortify our direct relationship. Unsurprisingly, this is precisely what my soul hungers for most.
