Have a seat. Quiet your heart. Take a moment. Settle down. Before you lament, and while you wonder.. before you decide you're not sure, anymore.
Remember. Consider. Conclude.
Remember God's many words to your heart & recount the moments He's met you with love.
Remember His faithfulness.
Consider His confirmation of your pursuit - the peace, added strength, and every one of those God-winks?
Ever wondered if you even belonged on this planet?! I know I have.. be it my quirks, and perks =) or something as simple as how I perceive and process any given day or situation...people are different. I have laughed way too hard in the wrong moments, and cried watching the Animal Channel because I can't stand to watch when the baby deer loses mother deer and the lion comes and ---- you know what happens next. My heart can't take it!!! :( #circleoflife
But I've digressed. Back to the point. God is so creative in His placement that we
often come into contact & even do life with people who are so different from ourselves. At times, it's wonderful, but other times it can cause us to question our belonging. It may cause us to run
from problems we carry the very solutions to, and sometimes, we feel like aliens in our own homes - or countries, :-/ But - what if I told you that every bit of your different takes nothing away? ...That your difference only validates the reason for your existence.
You are God's very intention.
One thing I love about God is that He's not found scratching His head when questions arise or trouble comes. He's not at a loss for words, wisdom or solutions. He's not non-chalant or disengaged. He's concerned. A portion of His glory is wrapped up in our living. He's committed to our victory. He's committed to our testimonies.. even if they're not always what WE think they should be. All things work together. He secures the wins?
His role in this relationship is to lead us to triumph.
Our role is to follow Him.
"I'll take care of you..." He says."Because your problems are my problems."
