Did you ever start writing a book knowing that you wrote well but lacked the mechanical skill sets needed to insure a good edit? I did!
Did you ever start writing a book without knowing it? Well I did!
Did you ever find yourself writing a story other than the one you planned? I bet you know by now that I’m going to tell you...I did! And you’re right! I did!
Now to some this sounds like the most harebrained idea one could concoct, and you’re right! That’s why I love telling people that I didn't make this happen, Messiah did! Don’t you love it when the Lord takes the reins and takes you on a journey you never signed up for?
Oh, that hasn't happened to you? Well it will if you yield to his leading! You've done that and nothing’s changed. Then let me suggest that you’re still in your comfort zone. You know the place where everything makes sense. It’s that comfortable place where your bills get paid on time, everyone at work is your friend, and the people at the grocery store know you by name. It’s the place where our illusion of doing what the Lord challenged to do might be pushed off to one side because we don’t want to make waves. Yep, you know what I mean! It’s the place where we never have to “Cast all our cares on him because he cares for us” cause we’re busy caring for ourselves.
Sometimes, especially during these stressful times, it’s easier to hide out instead of calling God our hiding place, a place where we’re protected from the troubles that surrounds us. It seems to me that right now many of us aren't listening for songs of deliverance, because we don’t know what that is. Or sadder yet, we’re looking for the government, our local officials, or our family to deliverer us. Perhaps we don’t even believe in deliverance or a deliver. So the words found in Proverbs 5-6, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight," are just a bunch of gibberish.
However, I have it on good authority that everything that comes around goes around, meaning you have only one ticket to ride so make it count for eternity!
