It's been about a year since I've last posted because I've been in a "holding" stage of life....
up until now.
So many aspects of life are changing. Some that I have not gotten my "100% total answer" about, and some are just changing how I see and feel about things.
Let me rabbit-trail for a moment or 2.... (I'm good at that!)
God has not been easily "seen" in quite a while, but I know that He is still there and is guiding me because of unmistakable circumstances that only the God of the Universe could do. It's easy for me to go along my way, doing what I want to do, being who I want to be...but not getting satisfaction out of any of it.
God should be the One "ordering my steps" (Psalm 119:133) and I should willingly give Him control because He knows what's "coming up next" (Jeremiah 29:11).
With all that said...Why is it so easy to dismiss God from our lives?
Is it because we truly do not see all that He Is? Do we not care? Do we not dive into His Word, the Holy Bible, in search of the love, the comfort, the peace, the rest, the shield, the fortress, the provider, the protector, the strengthener, and so much more...that is GOD?
Maybe it's easy to dismiss God because in the times of quietness and waiting, God might be wanting to see if we "step up" and seek Him and increase our faith.
But like an All-Loving Heavenly Father, He knows our weaknesses. He knows the future and how we are going to fail Him and that sometimes we won't seek His face and His plan.
I am the thorn in Your crown.....
I am the sweat from Your brow......
I am the nail in Your wrist......I am Judas' kiss......
BUT YOU LOVED ME ANYWAY!!!
And for that, I am eternally thankful.
