Trust and Seek
When I can't- God can.When people misunderstand me- God knows my heart.
When going on seems to difficult- I don't have to do it on my own. For He is with me.
When i feel alone- He is right there beside me.
"'For I know the plans that I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.'"
I mean, really- what situation(s) am I facing in my day to day life that God can't turn around and use for His glory? No matter how discouraging circumstances may be. Whether I'm on a mountain, or- as Anne Shirley says- "In the depths of despair"....God will make a way.
Of course, I can type this- feel all profound, and enlightened or whatever..and just keep on living my life- or- I (AND YOU!) could actually believe this truth. Know that whatever our Jehovah Shema has in store- He is right there with us... ready and willing at any moment to intervene.
So often I rely on people, friends, work, shopping, or whatever else to help me and get my mind off things... when these are only spiritual blinders and wheelchairs. People let me down, forget about me, shopping is pointless really, work is exhausting... but God- He's the perfect answer.
You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.I love those who love me, and those who search for me find me.
Jer 19:13, Prov 8:17
So, I'm working on stripping away my crutches, wheel chairs, blinders, and any other handicap stuff- and going to try trusting- completely relying on- my Creator, and the one who loves me most.
"Sometimes, when all the props and crutches in your life get stripped away and you find you have only God, you discover that God is enough. Sometimes, when your worst fears of inadequacy are confirmed and you discover that you really are out of your league, you experience the liberation of realizing that it is okay to be inadequate and that God wants his power to flow through your weakness." ~ John Ortberg
