If you know me at all; you know that I don’t do still well at all. I am a mover and shaker. I tend to live ahead of today in my mind and actions if possible.
I have always had a plan and couple of back up plans to go along with that plan. I have thrown my prayers up to God and then ran off to work my plans.
Today because of my shoulder; I find myself in a situation with no plans and no back up plans. I have no idea what I am going to do. How I am going to pay my bills or when I will be able to return to work.
I find myself totally dependant on others in my situation. Having to sit still for hours and hours at a time. Today MommaJo said the famous words that make me cringe lol Be Still, and know that He is God. Me be still? WUT???
Being still and knowing He is God is way more than physically being still. It’s making my mind be still, trusting that He has a plan, beyond any I could ever have.
A month and half ago I got my own place. I had a plan and a back up plan to make this work. Well that plan blew up quickly. I injured my shoulder and was off work. My roomate bailed, leaving me with full rent. I then went from thinking I would be off work a couple weeks to no job and facing surgery.
I know that God didn’t do any of these things to me. He comes to give life and not take away life. So I am having to now do that one thing that makes me cringe. BE STILL AND KNOW THAT HE IS GOD.
I am at a point with all of this that I can’t understand any of the whys and howcomes. I am going to lean on the ONE who does.
My God has a plan that blows all the plans I have ever had out of the water.
So my goal at this point is to BE STILL inside and out. Let my Daddy God heal my body, soul and spirit man. I know God is getting me prepared for all He has in store for me.
I will wait for His direction and follow after His Peace.
Sometimes we go through times that we feel like the rug has been pulled right from under us. We feel like we are stumbling and trying to get our security again.
When you trip or stumble the first thing you do is start grabbing for something secure to catch yourself. The question is are you grabbing ahold of something that is stable or that would cause even more injury with your fall?
I was thinking this morning about people who are climbing rocks or window cleaning and how they have a harness on that is secured to not let go. If someone was to fall and they grabbed ahold of something not strong enough to hold them, their secured by something designed to not let go.
Today I am here to tell you that there is ONE who Won’t Let Go! His name is God. Instead of reaching for relationships, addictive behaviors that temporarily fix us or emotions that cripple us, we must grab ahold of God.
I have found myself in this place and I am refusing to grab ahold of old behaviors or unstable situations and people to secure myself. I am determined to grab ahold of the ONE who is Holding Me!!
Today imagine yourself in Gods arms. Throw down everything that keeps you from embracing Him in return.
