Guest Post: Patricia Holbrook

I am so excited for today’s guest post! Today, I am hosting Patricia Holbrook.  She’s an author, blogger, and speaker, and I met her when she spoke at a ladies’ retreat that my church held.  She graciously agreed to let me share a post that she wrote this week.  It really spoke to me, and I thought the analogy of music to our lives was spot-on.  If you’ve ever felt like God is silent, or like things aren’t happening as quickly as you want them to in your life, please read it!

Because Mrs. Holbrook writes for the Atlanta Journal Constitution, and this was an article she wrote for them, I don’t have the rights to copy it here, but I am including the link so you all can be touched by it also. Just click here to read the post.

You can also follow her at the following places:

And you can get her book here!

Be sure to come back tomorrow for a bonus post!

I'm a writer who publishes my thoughts on the life I'm living, literature I'm reading, and God I'm serving. Psalm 27:4 One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.

  1. Quite the thought provoking post! I found the correlation with rests in music to be interesting as I played piano for many years. Although, I am curious as to what your personal take is on what “resting” or “waiting for God” looks like.

    1. Hi Nathan! I’m glad you were able to relate to the post! For me, waiting on God means seeking Him first (Matthew 6:33) before I take a step. To use a real-life example, I prayed for wisdom before starting this blog, did a lot of praying when I changed domains 1 1/2 years ago, and I prayed about upgrading my blog. I know without a shadow of a doubt that God has called me to blogging, but before I write a post, before I do anything–I pray. I want this to be all about Him, not about what I want to do. And He has been faithful to answer my questions, guide me in what to do, and provide for me in it! Another example would be school: when I attended college on campus, I had trouble with the program I was in, the way my teachers treated me, etc…but instead of arguing back with them, I would just pray about it and let it slide off my shoulders. God ended up solving every problem, fixing every wrong, and fighting every battle for me. The key was letting Him do it and not trying to do it all myself! 🙂 I hope this answers your question, if not, let me know!
