This speaks to me today. I have a number of men and women who are feeling as if their lives are being sabotaged right now….this minute – God uses storms.
We don’t know WHY life piles up and it “feels” as if God and everyone around is against us. But, is that truth? It “feels” true but how can the One Who made us be against us? How is it we think God is not for us, does not like us and His sole purpose is to teach us lessons so we will obey better.. Do not allow lies of never finishing, never being good enough, never getting caught up, never knowing yourself, never… get the best of you. Instead – receive Truth in that place of feeling overwhelmed and sabotaged… with Intention. Decide. New decision.
My thoughts? It is our response that determines how we maneuver through the water. God talks to us and we get to respond to Him and do our part. Our part is moving forward. Our part is remaining in peace. Our part is choosing life in the midst of death. Our part is remaining kind when we want to scream bloody murder and harm ourselves. Our part is not losing our cool with us and those around us. Our part is taking care of what is right in front of us. Our part is putting one foot in front of the other. Our part is going back to something we had instructions. Sometimes we rock on and move in and out of other places we want to obey but there is one place we choose NOT to obey and always feel undone because its so big in our mind and heart…it weighs on us because now we see how key our obedience was then and is now…
We think it is the doing… we think it is the getting it done and YES we have things we need to get done…but if we allow those things to control us OR use those things AGAINST us then we will be undone and devastated and distracted by the negative… BIG BREATH. You are NOT what you have done or have NOT done. You are NOT the devastation.
Ok. So, maybe you are in a storm and it feels you are devastated and it feels overwhelming and it feels like where do I start?
Start with one thing. Brush your teeth. Comb your hair. Get dressed. Smile at your face in the mirror. Validate your existence. Validate your life. Validate your God Who loves you and wants you to know His love in a storm or in a success…
I love you – Just do the next one thing…which might be feed yourself or the one with you or BOTH and then breathe…
One thing at a time..
One box at a time.
One pile at a time.
One drawer at a time.
One call at a time.
One step at a time…
Until soon and much love – Remember – God uses storms.
