Thanks so much for all your thoughts from yesterday’s post. Through clenched teeth I found myself grudgingly agreeing with everyone who suggested that I let it go and just trust the Holy Spirit with the lost list (I liked annabenedetti’s analogy of razing the old mess to allow new, green growth to sprout up).
I prayed about it and went to bed early, and woke up feeling surprisingly at peace about it.
Though I did receive some suggestions for how I might be able to retrieve it (thank you!), I actually think I’m going to just let it go. I do have another, older list that has some good notes. But, mostly, I think this would be a good opportunity to trust: if the ideas originally came from God and he wants me to share them, I’ll get them back; if they were my ideas alone, squeezed out of my own brain just because I felt like writing about them, then it’s not all that important that I get them out there anyway.
I should include the caveat that it’s hard to say whether this is the result of great trust in God based on a prompting from the Holy Spirit or just me being too lazy to install retrieval software. I hope it’s more the former. But, either way, I’m completely at peace with just starting fresh. I’ve actually got a post ready to go today that’s the result of one of your new suggestions.
Thank you again for your ideas and support!
