Afterwards, as I sat on the deck eating my lunch and reflecting on the experience, it became clear that God was ‘telling’ me to stop being so busy, so active all the time. Yes, exercise is important for my health, and particularly to strengthen my bones, but that I don’t need to overdo my planning and activity. With that, I felt incredible freedom, which is still there.
And yes, as the expression goes, “God is still speaking,” this time in my afternoon reading. From Isaiah 58:11 I read: The Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy your needs in parched places, and make your bones strong; and you shall be like a watered garden, like a a spring of water, whose waters never fail.”
