I've been thinking, I know, always a bad idea! But every time the New Year celebration rolls around, do we not always say this year will be different?
How can it be though, if we are going into it with the same problems?
Isn't that what crazy is - doing the same thing expecting different results? I would like to suggest we stop thinking of fixing everything ourselves and let the LORD do it in His time.
He being the utmost and Creator of the heavens and the earth, still does not overwelm us in the fixing. Yet we seek as a people to pack on the plate of issues to be fixed and then just want it done right away. What an interesting breed we are!
Can't I just lose this weight? RIGHT NOW! Can't we just fall back in love? IMMEDIATLEY! Can't he be mine? FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!
I wonder, no, I'm pretty sure God is asking, "Can't you just hold on, who do you trust?"
See, I think we are more comfortable in the dysfunction of trusting ourselves; we are downright shaky when it comes to trusting the father. And let's face it, He knows the ropes. He made 'em! Our ways to get things done, flat out don't work. We need the LORD to show us; He has shown me, it may not be A,B & C, but rather, C, B & A. That may be the process of uprooting the pain and sadness. That may produce the good fruit.
Let us take every day for what it is this year and first off trust the One who created, came and died, beat death in ressurection and is alive and active right now.
He wants so badly to love on us.
Can't we let Him?!
