My thoughts turn toward self assessment before each Queen Life call. I think about how I am changing according to the Word. I consider my glaring weaknesses and sins (when and how I’ve missed the mark) in the light of this Word. Today, another thought confronts me: The logical lady likely has difficulty with this Abigail-kind of transformation.
That’s the thought. I am logical…thorough…attentive to details…an introvert…naturally resistant to change…and analytical. I can pick a thing apart and then put it back together. Either you are similar to me, or you know someone like me.
As this study goes deeper into Abigail and the only two labels given her in 1 Samuel 25–a beautiful countenance and a woman of good understanding–I think about the many opportunities (aka tests) I have to walk in Abigail’s shoes. Simply put, it is one challenge after another! Yet, there is progress. I have many moments where I remind myself that He knows the way that I take, and when He has tried me I shall come forth as pure gold.
I find that there is a place for logic in The Queen Life, just not a dominant place. When the situation requires an Abigail-like response, the interruption of logic can have adverse results.
This is my attempt to exhort my cerebral, over thinking, intensely emotional (regardless of how much we are called nonchalant), must-have-an-understandable-plan sisters. While there are times our presence and logic create great wins for us, our companies and our loved ones, now is the time to subdue our logic. It is time to consider that God is responsible for taking care of us, regardless of our being in His loop of information.
Take a deep breath, logical lady. It. Is. Well.
