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
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
but when it does you immediately forget that you know how to DANCE.
"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.
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)
GOD isn't a FEELING
that comes & goes
"MY GOD IS STILL THE SAME" (listen to the song below)
