Ever find yourself still, staring at a wall? Can’t get over it? Can’t get around it? not sure how you even ended up here?
Been looking and struggling with this wall for quite some time..days have turned to months, months are quickly turning to years…
The need to evaluate, and re-evaluate is imperative. The questions that come to mind are scary, and very transparent of the heart. I’ve been shamed for being at this wall, accused of some horrific sin, dismissed as a backslider…..yet I am exactly where God wants me to be. HE is shredding my legalistic views, HE is stirring my bitterness to eliminate it, HE is still in control…even here. Only when HE has finished with the extremely painful heart surgery, will HE see me to the other side.
Funny, how we are so quick to judge another at the wall. How quickly we dismiss what we don’t understand. So often we claim to know what God is doing in another. We even claim to know and understand God. *sigh*
God is not created in man’s image, we don’t even have a conclusive definition of “Holy”, yet we claim it. I absolutely hate looking at this wall…and at the same time…I believe HE has a plan that is more awesome than anything I could dream up.
HE promised to never leave me…
HE promised to finish the work HE started in me…
HE promised to never let go…
Simple promises. Holding on to them with all I got. Hoping that when I get to the otherside of this wall, that my concept of HIM will have grown in huge proportions. “I will wait patiently on the LORD”…HE is faithful, even when I am not.
Ever been here? what did you learn if you have been? Maybe you are there now. If so, how do you keep looking up?
“Therefore there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ”

GOD works as HE wants according to the plan HE has! that is the bottom line… Can any man really honestly say… “I know the mind of God, and the direction HE is taking?”
With in each heart, HE molds, rearranges, moves to create the person that HE already sees in the finished completed person. Can your head even wrap around that?
HIS children run amuck, pointing fingers, tearing down, and condemning one another, all in the name of Jesus. WRONG! We need to learn to let God be GOD, do we not have enough to love each other as HE has commanded us to do.
The negative can not out weigh the positive…not with GOD’s children. We all cry out for unity, and Unity is here…but our pride tends to suffocate it.
Totally surrendered…God is GOD, I do not think like HIM, I do not plan like HIM, and HE is not created in my image, I am created in HIS.
My convictions will rarely be yours, and your convictions will rarely be mine…it all depends on where in the work of our hearts the Creator is at.. HE alone knows my heart, and HE alone knows yours. Let’s get back to “Love the LORD your GOD will all your heart, soul, mind, and strength…and love your neighbor as your self..”
Seriously….we need to get over ourselves…
