Reset I was praying this morning when the Lord placed a scripture in my heart.
My heart had been so heavy with worry and fear over financial pressures, feeling frustrated with my husband, everyone wanting a piece of me and...did I say financial pressures?
God is truly is awesome! I had been stuck in a rut, for what seemed at the time like forever. I was just unable to come out of that space.
I couldn’t pray or think rationally, Looking back now, I was really in the thick of it. I pretty much felt like a drifter/floatee. I felt like my dream world… rocked!! And real life sucked. I often escaped my problems in that illusive world where I was someone else and everything was the opposite of what seemed to be my negative reality. It felt nice, but hey! I couldn’t live there now could I?
The day came when enough was finally enough. I laid on my bed, thinking about the attack I was facing, an ache filled my heart and I just cried out to God so solemnly.
It was as though, God took hold of my hand, like he had been waiting for me to wake up and engage, play my part.
After a while, you learn that prayer truly is the key, not Just something Grandma or the pastor said for lack of any other advice to give. Keeping that close relationship with God through prayer is very much for our good than it is for God.
Before I began trying to understand the ways of God, I thought He was just such a needy God. I sure know different now. As I allow God to develop a humble nature in me, I understand more than ever that all the things God instructs us to do or not to do is out of sheer love. I was challenged from every angle, took a beating and then some from the enemy, I needed time out.
The trouble with time out is that you can chill a little too hard and become lazy. God showed me the backlog of tasks given to me by Him that I had failed to do. Super engrossed in my pity party, it was definitely time to hit the reset button.
God loves you and always wants what's best for you.
