Distant?

Just within the last few days,

I’ve read and heard so many different things about when people feel like God is “distant.”

Whaaaaaaaaaaat?

I don’t understand that.  You feel HE is distant?

Don’t you mean that YOU are being distant from Him?

How can you feel that He is distant?  HE hasn’t fulfilled the list you gave Him last night during bedtime prayers?  He hasn’t healed you or your family member yet?  He hasn’t kept up His side of the deal?  Seriously?

I admit, I’m in the middle of a waiting period right at this moment.  I am confident that this thing is going to happen, but I have no idea when.  I know that God is going to bless us through it.  I know it!  He is always working and moving and making things come together so we can look at it and go, “Wow, I never thought it could, would or even might come together like that, but WOW that is even better than I could have ever thought, imagined or dreamed!”   So, yep, I’m waiting and yep, I do get impatient.  Ohhhhhhhh do I get a little down about it at times, but do I ever feel like God is distant!?!  Absolutely not.

He tells me over and over and over in the scriptures that HE IS WITH ME.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.  Joshua 1:9 ESV 

Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.  Deuteronomy 31:6 ESV

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10 ESV 

He tells me through prayer and the daily sustaining of all things needed He provides for me.  He tells me through the Holy Spirit that I am never ever alone.

HE IS NOT DISTANT.  He is always there.  Why do you feel He is distant? Why?  Ask yourself truthfully and seriously.  Has he really wondered from you?  Has He truly distanced Himself from you.

That would be a, “Nope, no, never, not gonna, naw!”

Distant?

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?

 

 

 

STRUGGLES.

What do you struggle with? We all do.

Even the HULK with his INCREDIBLE power of massive strength, struggles with anger issues, Superman–cryptonite…

We all have struggles, conflict, A NEMESIS.  We all have something about us we don’t like or some situation we cringe thinking about.   We all have something that makes us feel so embarrassed or causes guilt to creep up and take over our mind. Sometimes, we even… allow ourselves to feel unworthy.

un·wor·thy
adjective  not deserving effort, attention, or respect.
Read that definition.  Read it again.
Whaaaaaaaaaat?!?  (in my best Minion voice)
We feel undeserving?  Not worth living life to the fullest?
Why do we do that?
Why do we allow our thoughts, others’ opinions or even the past to rob us of feeling FREE!?
No matter what you have experienced, done in the past or even feel about your physical appearance
–you were made for PURPOSE.
I’m no where near able to feel absolutely as free as I should, but I do know I have a hope I hold on to through the promises of God and by the blood of His Son.  The more I look to that hope, the more FREE I feel.  The past decisions I’ve made and stupid mistakes that haunt me at times seem to fade as I trust and lean on what really matters.  I am HIS creation and so are you.  Let’s try our best to take our struggles to Him and not just see them as that huge NEMESIS.  Wipe that away and see more clearly.
Be blessed…BE FREE!
Total note to self right here!
