Written in the middle of the night
Our life is a series of never ending unknowns.
When will we get married? When will we buy a house? How and when will we raise children?
Where will God call me next?
We want to know because knowing GIVES us a sense of security,
producing it right away,
seeing it right away gives us a sense of safety.
When the truth is only God knows.
And I have to surrender control and allow God to be in control.
I need to allow God to make a way instead of trying to make a way. Not knowing the NEXT often makes us question
- Am I doing enough?
And we often STRIVE for the answer hoping we will find certainty in the NEXT.
Instead of grasping and living in “I am enough in Christ Jesus”.
Jesus paid the price so I can rest knowing WHEN He does tell me the NEXT I will also be enough then. I am enough now and in the future. I will always be enough because of His sacrifice on the cross.
I am not lacking.
I am enough in Christ Jesus.
The frustration then comes when we don’t see change or results in people we’ve been called to help. But the truth is-
Change takes time.
No one changes overnight. Most changes take time, change requires
- A shift in mindset and thinking
A lot of people stay stuck because they keep going between 2 branches instead of letting go in order to grab unto another.
At one point of swinging away from one branch, Tarzan/Xena has to grab unto the next brand. He/she cannot hold 2 at once.
