Flying Under The Radar

 My husband isn't speaking to me.

He won't even look at me.

Don't fret.  We aren't fighting.

Don't put us on the prayer chain...just yet.

His behavior is rooted in fear.  Yes, he's afraid...of me...and the power of the pen. He's trying really hard not to say or do anything that could potentially become one of my devotional illustrations.

The other day we were laughing about how I use the simplest of things in my life to write these devotionals.  He joked about wanting to stay off my radar in fear that he may become a spiritual lesson on the internet.

"Radar, you say!  That would make a perfect devotional...got ya!"

I can fully relate to wanting to stay off the radar--God's radar that is.  I use to fly so far under the radar--my feet could touch the ground.  I thought if I could stay off God's radar--he wouldn't ask me to do anything.  I was like the toddler that covers her eyes believing she is invisible to everyone.

I too was hiding.

News Flash:  Our All Knowing God does see.  He sees what's on the radar and what is trying to fly under the radar.  

...and guess what?

God saw me.

He spoke to me.

He gently prodded me to move from my safety zone into the action.

Writing weekly devotionals (43 weeks now--yeah me!) has put me dead center on the radar screen.

Writing a book put me dead center on the radar. Interesting thing about being on the radar--not only God sees you but Satan does too.

Titus 3:1-2 (NIV) reminds us, "...be ready to do whatever is good, to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and always to be gentle toward everyone."

I'm going ahead and putting this out there...I'm done flying under the radar!  Are you?
