It has certainly taken me a long time to realize that Jesus wants to have a close, intimate relationship with Him. This relationship is not determined solely by how much I do, but more about how much I rely on Him–trusting Him and coming to Him throughout the day. During this time of isolation where “doing” is slowed down considerably, this new reality is truly brought to light. It is the Light Jesus is wanting me to see for it is a Truth about Him and me.
I’ve said this many times that I am a doer and I enjoy doing. Doing has always been equivalent to value with me. However, during this time of isolation, Jesus has been teaching me that doing is good, but it is not to replace the “being” he wants for me. Value is not earned, it is gifted into life by our Creator–God Himself. I love Him and thank Him for this teaching!
