Day 11: The Same Truth


I have a confession to make.

Even though I was DANCING with JOY

and even wrote about it

I didn't want to post it yesterday

as I was no longer DANCING

as life quickly changed

as if a freight train came through my house.

One moment JOY

and the next DESPAIR.

Oh how quickly things can turn

when you least expect it

and it is like you never knew that you could DANCE or ever DANCE again.

Life comes to a quick halt

and you wonder

Where are you GOD?

Where is the JOY OF THE LORD?

And if you keep questioning,

FEAR & DOUBT become your new DANCING partners

that keep your feet stuck to the ground.

So when I read yesterday's blog that I posted

I was cringing as I felt like a hypocrite

as I wasn't feeling the JOY that I had written about

Hmm.

GOD knew HE was writing it for me

and had me purposely schedule it to be posted before the train hit.

GOD is not a liar.

So as I read it

HIS TRUTH overwhelmed me

because it is all TRUTH

that I needed to be reminded of.

Oh how clever GOD is to get our attention

even when HE gives me a dose of my own medicine.

For when I write

I am not trying to write.

As I am just sitting with GOD and talk to HIM

and whatever is on my heart just starts coming out of my fingers on the keyboard

as HE is feeding me HIS TRUTH.

So yesterday's writing came to me

in the middle of the previous day

so I scheduled it for the next morning as I was overwhelmed with JOY~

HIS JOY that GOD did not want me to forget that is always so real.

Oh how I can be DANCING one day in the FREEDOM of being CHRIST'S daughter

and then within seconds I am shackled to

FEAR & DOUBT that comes in like a freight train.

You are dumbfounded

as you believe that nothing can shake the

FREEDOM of HIS JOY

HIS PEACE

HIS LOVE

HIS HOPE

but when it does you immediately forget that you know how to DANCE.

But

"Your GOD is present among you,

a strong Warrior there to save you.

Happy to have you back, HE'LL calm you with HIS love

and delight you with HIS songs" (Zephaniah 3:17)

Oh I am DANCING again

because HIS TRUTH IS TRUTH

even when a freight train tries to run over you.

REAL life.

REAL feelings.

&

A REAL GOD

who never stops being GOD

even when DANCING is paused

because only HE can do the impossible~

"YOU have turned my mourning into dancing for me;

YOU have taken off my sackcloth and clothed me with joy" (Psalm 30:11)

because

GOD isn't a FEELING

that comes & goes

because

"MY GOD IS STILL THE SAME" (listen to the song below)
