Happy Friday! I’m setting my timer for five minutes and I’m going to write…PERIOD.
Today’s word is cancel.
An element of control is wrapped in the fabric of the word cancel.
When I decide I no longer need services, I cancel them. When our culture/church/friend group determines someone has gone too far, said person is “canceled”.
What about when God whispers?
Do I immediately respond to God with obedience or do I cancel His request by needing to understand all the details before I take a step?
In total transparency, I cancel God’s requests often. I don’t flat-out say no. I just begin to research how it will or won’t work. (Research being looking online and comparing myself to other people who seem to be uber-successful at what God has called me to do.)
Can you hear the violin playing soft sad music while I only end up only thinking about what God asked me to do but doing nothing?
If I can’t see the complete process or the task seems above my skill level, I cancel the idea.
In the shower a couple of weeks ago, I felt God leading me to get back into writing devotionals. But the idea He gave me was to do short devotionals in a presentation format. My response–NO ONE WANTS TO SEE/HEAR THAT plus it will be too much work. CANCEL.
I’ve started creating presentation-like devotions that combine my love of creating happy spaces and encouragement! Do I have it all figured out …NO!
But, my cancel culture stops today!

Have you ever canceled God’s whispers to you?
How can you finish 2020 strong?
