My heart has been heavy for some time, and although I come in and out of it, I come back to the same thing. So many are claiming Christ, and living in defeat. There is victory in Jesus, and if we are not experiencing it, then guess who isn’t cooperating?? Jesus did not promise us a life without problems, HE didn’t promise us an easy road to HIM, HE didn’t promise that we would always have some stupid smile on our face. This is NOT our home, we live in a fallen world…
We are not greater than our Master-John 13:16
In this world you will have trouble, but take heart, I have overcome the world-John 16:33
But what HE has promised the believer is;
I will finish the work I started in you-Philippians 1:6
I am coming back for you, you are not an orphan without a home-John 14:18
Here is where my heart gets heavy, so many offer so much advice, and yet the crisis of unbelief seems to be a blanket in which to hide and study our pain, we somehow start to worship our own pain…there is something very twisted in that, and not from God. HE gives us wings to soar over our pain, HE touches and heals the heart, HE loves with an everlasting love, and yet we are caught dwelling on what we can not change, instead of believing HIM that trials and sufferings teach us more about HIM, and also share in HIS sufferings, and still most of us will not be called to die for HIM, yet we wallow in our suffering as if we are called to put out more than HE. In the words of Mama Beth (Beth Moore), Its time to stop wishing and whining, and start believing and receiving! AMEN!? Amen
When’s the last time your hurt, and disappointment was turned back to HIM, and just allowed HIM to hold you, just comfort you? The sweetest thing to me is when I allow HIM to hold me…HE is never too busy…I don’t have to wait, HE’s already here…and HE has no time constraints…holds us as long as it takes, days to months to years…does it take away the pain of it all, not always…but it does give us the power and strength to look it in the face and rise above it…Thats the promise…as my heart breaks for the hurting…we have no other choice..we need to believe and then recieve. Praying tonight for your hearts to find healing, and comfort in Christ. And then to just turn around and hide in HIM, feel the waltz, and let HIM hold you as long as it takes.
If you have time listen to this by Natalie Grant- Held, and just close your eyes and waltz with HIM, let HIM hold you and hold you and hold you..experience this..
