Just Abide


Oh the 'ole hamster wheel...

The hamster runs & runs & runs

back to the same place

every time

going everywhere

yet nowhere

gaining speed

but it is a dead end.

Have you ever felt like you were on a hamster wheel?

You try

you try again

you try again & again & again

&

always end up in the same place,

yet

you just can’t seem to get off the wheel

because

the wheel is the problem.

No matter how fast you run

if you are on the wheel

you will end up

weary

anxious

hopeless

helpless

impatient

just

out of control

because

you become

whatever

wherever

you abide in.

ABIDE~

to dwell

to remain.

What is your hamster wheel?

What/Where do you keep seeking to

find something more

to find something better

to find something different than what is right now~

yet keep ending up in the same place?

Seek and you shall find

Seek what?

Him

and find what...

If I want Hope

You are there

If I want Peace

You are there

If I want Love

You are there

If I want Self Control

You are there

If I want Patience

You are there

If I want Faithfulness

You are there

If I want Goodness

You are there

If I want Kindness

You are there

If I want Gentleness

You are there

The

Fruit of the Spirit.

Fruit can’t produce itself

Fruit is birthed out of

ABIDING...

ABIDING

in Him~

Connected to the Vine

Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. John 15:4

A hamster doesn’t have a choice

as the cage is his home

his dwelling

with a wheel in the center

but

We

have a choice

to get off the wheel that keeps us caged in

when we

seek and find

the

One

Who

we

ABIDE

in

so that

we will

experience

the

Fruit

that

can

never

be

found

on

the hamster wheel.

Where are you abiding to produce fruit?

The word for today is

ABIDE~

ABIDE

in the

One

Who

replenishes

the

weary

anxious

hopeless

helpless

impatient

&

out of control

soul.

.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Galatians 5:22-23
