felt like we were doing something wrong
when what we were doing was something that we use to do all the time
but this time it was so very different
because it was like the first time.
We gathered together.
In a parking lot.
The band was there, even the drums.
And we sang. But not just singing
as we worshipped & praised GOD.
Singing the songs that we used to sing
Oh the words had so much more meaning than ever before
because we have been living out the truths like never before
because we have been living through a time of life
that we have never lived before.
Social distancing. Quarantine. Not TOGETHER.
Oh how you don't know how much you miss something
until it is taken away.
But then it is brought back.
It may be different yet the same~
because it is me & you who are the different ones
doing the same thing yet being different.
I felt like I have been in a cocoon and now started to fly with my new wings.
I am not the same person who I was before we were all cocooned during this time.
My eyes are opened wide.
My heart is opened wide.
It is if I am seeing & being for the first time.
I don't like not being TOGETHER,
but I realize that we were always TOGETHER
even though we were apart
because we were all in our cocoons
GOD was doing what HE does best~
"And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose" (Romans 8:28)
Because GOD never wastes a moment,
as every moment is an opportunity for
HIM to do what HE does best~
never giving up on me & you & everyone else
because this moment is always the
to draw so much closer to the ONE who draws closer to us
in the lonely spaces & places
when we have no idea what is next.
But one thing I do know~
"I am convinced and confident of this very thing, that HE who has begun a good work in you will [continue to] perfect and complete it until the day of
CHRIST JESUS [the time of His return]" (Philippians 1:6)
Oh every moment is the beginning of a life changing moment
because we weren't created to stay the same.
Embrace this moment with the ONE who embraces you
"GOD'S NOT DONE WITH YOU" (listen to the song below)
