Day 11: Only God Can


As my mind is starting to wander

to those empty places in my heart

that only JESUS can fill,

yet I get impatient as

even I know ONLY JESUS can FILL my HEART,

I also want what I want when I want it.

I am not talking about material things,

as it is about

those things I pray about that

are in GOD'S will.

But if I stay here too long

I start traveling down the pity party trail

and start to FEAR that the pain is going to crush me.

Oh THE FEAR OF FALLING APART.

BUT GOD doesn't leave me here,

as THE HOLY SPIRIT nudges me to

REMEMBER ALL that GOD has done in my life.

FOREVER FAITHFUL.

And I have to laugh

because

GOD does not change.

HE is the SAME GOD.

That is why it is HIM who we depend on.

And GOD IS FAITHFUL right this moment

as the following words

are being sung in the background~

"I don't know who I'd be if I didn't know YOU I'd probably fall off the edge, I don't know where I'd go if YOU ever let go. So keep me held in YOUR hand"*

Oh I would FALL APART if I was

APART from GOD.

GOD is the thread that runs from your heart

to the heart of HIS SON

and then right back to GOD HIMSELF.

FEAR of FALLING APART is not a bad thing,

because the worse thing that can happen is that I cry,

yet with GOD.

To FEEL your FEELINGS, with GOD.

To FACE your HURTS, with GOD.

Because GOD never FALLS APART!

And now the following words are being sung,

that are

FILLING

those empty spaces and places of my heart

with HIS TRUTH~

"YOU'RE my safe place, my hideaway YOU'RE my anchor, my saving grace YOU'RE my constant, my steadiness YOU'RE my shelter, my oxygen" *

Now that is our GOD~

"The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;

my GOD is my rock, in whom I take refuge,

my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold" (Psalm 18:2).

My wandering mind is no longer wandering down

the pity party path

because my

GOD

met me right where I was

to bring me back to HIMSELF

so

THE FEAR OF FALLING APART

has become a far off whisper

that I no longer entertain

for

"I don't know who I'd be if I didn't know YOU. THANK GOD I DO"
