There's a time to be super proactive and take care of the business at hand. To conscientiously do your homework and roll up your well-worn sleeves. To make your prayer-laden choices and state your case well. We are called to be ready with an answer, to not be weary in well doing, to sow and reap, and not be idle.
And then there's that whole call to be still and know that He is God. A time to hang it all up and release and let go. A season to lay our burdens down, to rest from our never-ending efforts. And to shut up and sit quietly, breathe deeply, and get out of the way and wait for Him to accomplish what He deems best.
I think it's much easier to do all that busy, active stuff.
How 'bout you?
