Day 14: New You
It is still January
The month of RESOLUTIONS.
The month of SEEKING NEW.
The month of I will FAST from _________
so that I will be __________.
January brings a NEW focus
because we truly are tired of running 100 miles an hour
& tired of being out of control
& so crave things to be different & better
so that we can slow down & smell the roses,
but they won't be blooming until Spring and it is still January.
So how NEW are you so far in 2020?
But what if we stopped striving & trying
& took a break from ourself
by taking a seat.
An empty room.
Totally white with only 2 chairs~
One for you
What thoughts are running through your head?
Tears fill my eyes just thinking about it & right now I don't know why.
Could it be that I have complicated my relationship with JESUS?
Have I made it about wanting blessings from HIM,
instead of just desiring HIM?
Have I become so distracted that I have filled the room with so many other things,
that I can't even see HIM?
Just you & JESUS
sitting in an empty room.
What would you say? How would you feel?
I would say that
I am sorry because I haven't always put HIM first.
And then I can picture
looking into my eyes with
even though I would want to hide my head in shame,
as these words would be swirling in my head~
"I am not good enough to be sitting here, just YOU & I."
"Why would YOU even want to spend time with just me?"
would still be looking into my eyes & into your eyes with such
because that is
Who JESUS IS
nothing that you or I feel or have done or not done
can ever change that
because it has always been about
You & I
made everything about us
"HE made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man,
HE humbled himself by becoming obedient to death—
even death on a cross!" (Philippians 2:8)
could sit with each one of us~
ONE on one~
every second of every day,
so that we can be filled with
making every moment a NEW moment
if only we go beyond just picturing
An empty room
Totally white with only2 chairs~
One for you
& actually take the time to take the seat
that is waiting for you & I always.
And that will become your favorite place
where the NEW you is always found~
"Find me here at YOUR feet again" ("TOUCH THE SKY", listen below)
