Day 36: I See...
I missed Jesus yesterday
because I was too consumed
with my computer
that would get stuck on every letter that I tried to type.
I tried hard
from morning to night
to get the blog post up
my day ended up being trickled with
frustration and impatience,
so I fasted from them~
but did I really
because all day
focused on being frustrated and impatient,
now I know why there is a missing Day 35
I missed Jesus.
He was right there
calling me to come
I was too focused on not missing a day of posting
because this blog was something God placed on my heart
God placed Jesus on my heart first
I missed Him
missed seeing Him
missed His presence
I was too preoccupied.
Jesus kept telling his disciples that
“He must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that He must be killed and on the third day be raised to life.”
But good ole Peter..
“took Him aside and began to rebuke Him.
“Never, Lord!” he said. “This shall never happen to you!” Matthew 16: 21-22
Peter missing what Jesus was saying~
‘Peter, your place is behind Me, not in front of Me. It is your place to follow Me in the way I choose, not to try to lead Me in the way you would like Me to go.'” (Barclay)
That is it~
the Peter in me
because I place Him behind me.
I acknowledge He is there
I say I love Him
I even call Him my Savior
I go before Him
and like Peter
I deny Him
more than 3 times.
who am I really denying...
“Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow Me. Matthew 16:24
Him before whatever is overtaking my mind
Him before whatever is weighing me down.
And if I am to do this
all I would see would be
Peace before me
Hope leading me
Love surrounding me
Because He just says
what I learned yesterday just because my website was not cooperating
is that it just wasn’t my computer that was stuck yesterday
It was me
so stuck on myself that I missed Jesus.
What is blocking your eyes from seeing Jesus?
Is it a circumstance
or just plain ‘ole life.
Do you see Jesus?
Let’s fast from
beyond whatever is weighing you down
He was carrying the biggest weight ever
on the way to our cross
because that was what
He had to carry
for you and for me
so we can
May you see Jesus in all things because He is in all things. They are all around us, especially in the midst of the unknowns…All because He Sees..
