Lately I’ve been wondering if “women’s intuition” is real, or even a biblical thing to believe in…its something I have always sort of thought that I had; not that I can predict the future or anything (I wish!) but I usually have a feeling something will happen or is happening before I find out about it. Maybe everyone feels like that from time to time?
Most recently I had a feeling that it was time for B and I to leave our current church, which started sometime in November, though we didn’t know we were pregnant (and therefore need to leave so that B can get the practical experience of leading worship on his own) until January. And, when B did put out his resume for church jobs, he immediately was hired by the absolute perfect first (part-time) church for him. Its been great to see how its built his confidence and already begun to prepare him for full-time ministry. I know that this is God’s working in our lives, but I wonder about the intuition part. Maybe it was something that was just obviously going to happen soon? Maybe God put it on my heart?
And God putting something on my heart…that phrase has me wondering too. Its what I’ve been thinking about this week…I have been praying for something, but these past few days I have suddenly had the feeling that I need to be REALLY praying for it–like down on my knees everyday praying for it, intense prayer, real and earnest prayer–and I’m wondering, since this is a good thing that I’m praying for, if this is just my intuition, or selfish desires, or if God is laying it on my heart to pray for this thing. And would it be Wrong to pray for it so earnestly if its just something that I want?
Just some Sunday morning thoughts. Puzzled by the mystery of it all.
