Does your heart long for reassurance?
Where you know ( although you fear) that you are being held up by another.
Ever let yourself down?
The sorrow and sadness, guilt and berating we take from the inside……(should we really just take it because we think its US, in whom we trust, who is speaking?)
Where is the Peace that you seek?
Is it found in the deepest recesses of your heart behind the door, locked by a key, where the KING lives waiting for you to unlock the door. ( did you know that you have the key called Believe?)
I reach out, though I fear.
Almost not trusting that this person in front of me is being truly kind.
But because I need some strength…
I will listen to their words.
Later, while reflecting on what was said to me
I hear these kind words and my self says “you really didn’t do that good of a job” and because I learned so very young that I had to rely on myself, I choose those hurtful words that tell me I am less than who I am.
This is what happens when we allow and think that what others think or say about us is somehow important.
Some long ago place, we may find that someone lied and so it carries over in present time and we stamp others as the same way.
There is but one
Turning the world upside down!!
Let GOD be the giver of your worth.
Like a door that needs a key.
So a present must be unwrapped.
He gives HIMSELF to be our LIFE.
Will you take it? —yes
Suddenly, a deep peace within that I did what I could and He did the rest.
My self no longer can say “see what these hands have done, or that they didn’t do it just right.”
Obedience is better than sacrifice.
I don’t burn out trying to do it all alone. I don’t sacrifice my voice for the clamor of the crowd. I don’t give up on who I am because someone seems to be burning brighter.
Instead I BLAZE on in GOD’s ways. He walks before me and I follow. Together we root out the darkness in my soul.
Where You go I go, what You say I say.
That self can say no more “this or that, go here, go there, run faster, faster!”
It’s NOT my King, my foundation or LIFE that is sustaining me. HE IS!!!
My self is humbled in HIS presence and learns to lean on Him for strength, for breath, for grace.
I can go and love on people …they no longer hold me up.
My job is to POINT up and SHINE a light!
When you know better, you do better.
A poem my daughter wrote:
God in My Heart
God is my rock
In my heart with a lock
God’s inside my soul
And I am on a roll
