"We must pay more careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away ( Hebrews 2:1)
Unless our FAITH arises CHURCH we will never hear what God has to say to us, nor will we find that sweet secret place under His wings of safety. I implore you, dear ones, Don't lay down your shield of FAITH! - Jane Morin
Never doubt God’s watchful care over your life. He is the only God who knows us intimately. Someone today has forgotten the authority that they have in Christ. If we recognize WHO we belong to, we should also recognize what is available to us in the Spirit by and through Him. Be not ignorant of this dear ones, God’s love and power are at your disposal!
“Know that the Lord is God. It is He who made us, and we are His. We are His people, the sheep of His pasture.” (Psalm 100: 3)
“I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.” (Psalm 27: 13-14)
For those of you following the events since my car accident on June 7th of this year, I want you to know that after back surgery on October 1, it is true that I felt a bit like the wind got knocked out of me. Regardless of my fearless, calm and collective self-prior to surgery, I found myself falling a bit to pieces in just a few hours afterward. It was partly due to the medication that I was on and the coming out from anesthesia, and the other part was the type “A” in me screaming to get up and do something about my situation.
I have always excelled in moments of trial, and perhaps I sort of set the goal a bit too high for myself thinking that I could take on yet another book project, another writing contract or another “something” constructive while resting and recuperating in my season of waiting.
It wasn’t until last night when I turned to my husband and admitted that the last thing that I wanted to do was take on something else besides a time to heal. He looked at me with and smiled with an implying grin, “I wondered when you would get there.”
After listening to him, I understood all too well that I had placed expectations on myself that I will not be able to fulfill this side of concentrating on getting well. My spirit cries out, “I am well in Jesus Name…” but I am waiting for the full manifestation of that promise to come to pass. Meanwhile, my faith and my failure to adapt to the situation gracefully have found me undone.
Then I hear a sweet, compassionate voice say, “Just rest. Your job is to rest and heal and to let Me take care of everything else. It’s okay to just rest in Me for a season without producing, without being outwardly constructive. I am working on inward constructive right now. Daughter, rest, and let me strengthen, rebuild, and remold what is broken and allow me for once to do a work without you sensing the need to help me out.” –Father God
Wow---- a double blow to my ego, to think that God thinks that I am trying to help Him out. I guess, I am always trying to reach for the stars regardless of what combat field I find myself in, and always trying to show others how awesome God is in my life. Truth is, I am surrounded by warriors praying and battling for me as I heal. Truth is, God does not need me to make this situation more miraculous than it is. The fact that I am able to sit up and write, walk, reflect, pray and think straight at moments, well, that in itself is a blessing at this time in my life.
