Fun 1/2 true speel: Looking at my website of late, one might assume I’ve been a tiny bit of a dry pen. Maaaaybe. But, hey man, I’ve been busy. 🙂 I know, I know, we all say that, right? Well, it is partly the busy where you mean “That’s not my priority right now”; but also, I went on a trip to see some really good friends, and then there’s
Important now:there’s this thing in my family that I’d like y’all to pray for-unspoken. Anyways…
I was talkin’ to the family, and said that I wrote this – but it was God’s idea… you know. My brother just said that “It was a team effort”. So I want y’all to hear it.
#RealStuffNow lol: Here goes:
We talk about us running from God&Him chasing us. We tend to picture one person running in a straight line, pursued by god, also running in a straight line. That’s nice enough.
But I have a new picture. We’re all running. In lots and lots of circles, at all different speeds, and in opposite directions. (No wonder we’re confused now a days!)
We each think we’re covering new ground as our paths intersect. But in reality, we’ve been here before, and so have others. You ask where God is?
God is rightfully in the center of it all – in the middle of our wild circles. He doesn’t chase us. He doesn’t have to train like an athlete to be able to catch up. He’s right there.
He could stretch out His arm and tap us on the stomach with His finger, and we’d fall right over. But He doesn’t. He wouldn’t. So we run on in our own rebellious way.
As we run in our life, we think we’re getting farther from Him. Because we’ve run sooo far. But He’s there. Always still there.
Have you ever held a bug, and let it crawl from palm to palm? It thinks it’s gone so far. Thus with us. All this time later, we’re still in God’s palms.
Now, there are a few people in the circle. It is a very special place, where one is in intimate relationship with God. God and man, one on one, like Moses.
How do we get there?
What happens when you stop running? Well, for one thing, you get the biggest bear hug of your entire life! You repent. You apologize. You find grace, through surrender. You follow Yahuwah with your whole heart, soul, body, mind and spirit.
Then guess what? You’re set for life. Just don’t start running again.
And love Yah more and more, every day, hour, and minute.
Talkin’ to myself here.
Shalom y’all! Yah & I love you!
