Day 10: Humble Humility


I COMPLICATE GOD

when I strive to figure everything out that I can't figure out,

seeking an answer

yet never getting one because

I am looking within myself

when I am practicing

THE ANALYSIS OF PARALYSIS

I BELIEVE that once I have all of my answers,

then I will be able to PRESS FORWARD

beyond what I am trying to FIGURE out.

Hmm.

But GOD lets me do it.

HE watches me grow WEARY

as I strive to swim against the current,

when HE is my life boat.

I could easily jump into

HIS boat

and off we would go

IN PERFECT PEACE,

as

HIS SON take the oars

doing what I can never do on my own.

Yet I remain on dry ground

stuck in

THE ANALYSIS OF PARALYSIS,

trying to figure out what

GOD is doing

instead of

TRUSTING GOD

that HE is doing what is best for me

so that I

PRESS FORWARD

in

the STILLNESS of TRUST

instead of staying stuck

in

THE ANALYSIS OF PARALYSIS

that keeps me in the same place.

Why COMPLICATE GOD

when HE is the ONE who has

FIGURED it all out,

from way back in the

GARDEN

when

Adam & Eve

COMPLICATED their

PERFECT PARADISE LIVING

thinking that there was something

MORE than GOD.

It sounds so silly because

I BELIEVE I would have not listened to the crafty serpent

by not taking a bite of the apple,

but then again it is so much easier said than done

when you are faced with

BELIEVING what you

SEE

then

BELIEVING what you can't SEE.

Didn't PETER deny that he wouldn't deny JESUS

even though JESUS told him that he would?

Hmm.

For FAITH takes me beyond what

I strive to FIGURE out.

For FAITH is

BELIEVING that

JESUS IS THE ANSWER in ALL THINGS,

because

GOD FIGURED out all HIS CREATIONS.

I bet when Eve was grabbing for the apple

GOD was hoping that she wouldn't partake.

But HE gave her FREE WILL

But HE gives us FREE WILL,

to BELIEVE or not BELIEVE

by FAITH

all that we can't FIGURE out

yet strive to.

I raise my white flag.

I am FASTING from

THE ANALYSIS OF PARALYSIS

that is so full of PRIDE

as it leaves GOD out of the picture

making me my own GOD.

GOD IS GOD and HE has a way better grip of my life

than I can ever have

because HE is the one who gave me life.

So will you join me

and

FAST FROM THE ANALYSIS OF PARALYSIS

by

"HUMBLING yourselves under GOD’S mighty hand..." *

as you

BELIEVE

TRUST

and

KNOW

that GOD has everything FIGURED out already,

so that HE turns your world upside down~

"that HE may lift you up in due time" *(I Peter 5:6-7),

bringing you to the perfect space and place for where

HE has planned for you to be.

I am going back to the

simple

uncomplicated

TRUTH OF FAITH

and jumping into

GOD'S boat feet first~

ABIDING IN HIS SON

REMAINING IN HIS SON

with my feet firmly

PLANTED in HIS TRUTH

so that

I BLOOM

HIS PERFECT PEACE

that doesn't need

FIGURING OUT

because

I KNOW

"that in all things GOD works for the good of those who love HIM,

who have been called according to HIS purpose" (Romans 8:28).

And GOD means

ALL THINGS

"FOR THE GOOD"
