This post was actually written in my journal while I was in the bathtub! I am so happy I decided to bring it and a pen in.
My pain level today is through the roof. It sucks to feel like I am burdening others because I physically just can’t do something. Yet, deep down I know that each of these moments is a time that can and will be used to bring Him glory –even though I don’t see it at the moment.
I have to trust that my entire existence has a God driven purpose. Perhaps this time laid up in bed really has given me more time to reflect, think, and spend time in His Word.
Time to read one more blog.
Time to write.
Time to spend getting to know God’s daughters more intimately everyday.
Like Carrie Underwood belts out:
“Jesus take the wheel…”
I want Him to be in the driver’s seat. I need Him to be my life’s GPS! The only way I can truly experience God is by letting Him grip onto me and allow myself to enjoy the ride.
To see the forest through the trees.
To see the millions of shades of green.
To see each nail rusting and old and to think about the nails that He took for me!
His blood crimson and mixed with salty-sweat, pouring from Him as He died so that I could live. Spending Passover as the resurrected Son so that my darkest hours can be filled with light. The gentle lamb allowing Himself to die so that He could bare my sins, our sins and leave open the Heavenly gate.
The Lion fighting Satan and refusing to submit. A lion, thee Lion stealing back our flesh from Satan’s greedy hands. All while He reaches His hands out to me, like I am the prodigal son, He waits knowingly for me to turn the corner, submit to the Lion, act like the Lamb and call Heaven home. Tweet This
