Days of not feeling so strong…
Ever have one of those weeks or days where you just want to stay in bed and not face the day? Yep, been feeling that lately and it’s not like me.
There are so many plates falling that seem to always be in their place and so I was sitting outside in the sunshine this morning asking God “Are you really there?” Does He really see all our circumstances? Some would say “you’re in a season of promotion” but it feels like demotion.
I guess in these moments all we have left is the Hope in Jesus.
I love the song “Pursuit” by Jesus Culture that says “Strip everything away, till all I have is You” Now as we have been singing that the last few weeks, in all honestly, my thought has been … Do we actually understand what they are singing? In our cookie cutter lives of nicey nice, do we really want everything stripped away?
I have to be honest, I would feel punished not blessed which brings me to a realization that maybe I need to re-evaluate the reality that I might have little gods in my life that don’t belong there.
Maybe I do put things in a place they don’t belong before God.
I trust in my work, my partners in music, my spouse, my friends… and when that does not come through I am feeling discouraged and alone. Yet that’s so contradicting to the scriptures that we so boldly speak.
Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Gosh even as I just read that, I have a wonderful strange peace that comes over me. God has never let me down, and I do know that I can rest in HIS promises even when the world fails.
We are human, give yourself some grace, and realign your heart with the heart of God and remember you’re not alone.
Step into the sunshine and let the warm rays comfort you as God above DOES see you, and together with each other as sisters and brothers in Christ we will succeed in this journey of Life as we meet Him in eternity.
So I am reminded today, where to put my faith, my hope and my future… It’s in His hands, and I WILL be blessed on the journey with all of you!!
Have a wonderful day
Much Love C
