Don't Be Tardy for the Real Party ~ the Holy Gohst Party Don't Stop
I am so excited for you today, for, on this day, you get to wake up and be you. How about starting there being grateful that for one more day God where wants to use you. He gave you all you need for this one piece of time. You have a purpose all your own. You may still be wiping the sleep from your eyes. At this very awakening moment. You may not be sure of just what that purpose is. You may not be ready to face the day as of yet. So trust Him to give you wisdom words and actions.
Wait one minute; do not open your mouth too quickly, for it may be unclear what you are to say at first. Take a moment and ask humbly for that wisdom, for His words, and for the actions He would have you do.
Please don't forget to put on your armor before bracing the storms ahead, for again the surge may be unpredictable. It may take you off guard and place you in a tailspin. You may feel quite shaken and rocked to the core, but trust in God He will come through always.
Oh so you say, “I have messed up, I have made a mistake, and I have been hurtful, prideful, insensitive, wrong, silly, sneaky, not trusting, I have given up or, in a nutshell, I have been human. Do you feel under attack, well, it is okay my friend you are under attack. So never be afraid to share and admit your humanness. It is one thing that bonds all of us together here on earth. We are all life learners and so one day your insecurities may be louder than another’s and so you will need the listening ear or the teaching and comforting of a friend or confidant. On another day that same person who comforted you may need you as a sounding board and mentor. God uses each and every one of us for His good. Even the suffering has been predestined. His word is so telling and purposeful. You will sin, it is a given, so expect to be imperfect and forgiving at the same time.
Your sin was washed by His blood, so confess it to Him and move forward, keep moving forward and know with every tiny step you take there will be a force attempting to pull you backward. This force you will fight with every thought and breath and yet at times, it will win. In those slip-up times, hold tight to the promises of the cross. You are stronger and God’s grace is sufficient in these battles. Give it up to Him as often as tested and when you can’t just call out His name, and you will be in His shelter. A shelter that is sturdy and unshakable, with walls that no storm can take from you. This shelter will withstand any storm.
If only you could trust in the Great and benevolent Lord or Lords and King of Kings. He is your protector, your redeemer, your Father. He never leaves you and wants only the best for you. His arms are always open and welcoming. So when the tears stop falling and the anger has passed and the mistake is in the past and you are no longer able to rely on yourself or others, surrender once again. And know that He is God. He is in every valley and His spirit can lift you to every peak. He can pull you out of the deepest and darkest of situations. You may not understand at the time, but He will provide understanding. He will challenge you to have faith that is as deep and wide as His love for you. This will take constant hunger for His word. And remember, you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you (Phillip. 4:13).
Just keep talking to Him. Keep looking up and trust in the power of His plan. He will use every bit of you, the good the bad the indifference, even the ugliness of our sin. He will take the remnants and debris of every storm and make rainbows for our future. With every loss will come a win, every tragedy will bring a joy, every test will bring an answer, in time.
Believe, love and laugh and forgive as He forgives and most importantly know that every person is struggling and trying to be like Him as much as you are and some days they get it right and some days not so much, but He loves us all anyway. So maybe we can do the same for one another and love in that very unconditional way.
Imagine how good that would feel? To not be judged or judge others simply love as you are loved. One day together we will see His beautiful face and we will lay at His feet in complete and utter peace. We can get there together one day at a time. If we awaken to Him and trust in His direction.
See all of you at the party.
