Day 22: Distracted no More


CONFUSION & DISTRACTION

washes over me as I have been sitting here for hours with GOD,

yet my mind is all over the place~

going nowhere.

CONFUSION & DISTRACTION

striving to drown out

GOD'S VOICE

in the stillness of this quiet morning

as it is now birthing

FRUSTRATION

because my morning is not going

the way I want it to~

To be greeted by the

STILLNESS OF GOD

because GOD is the ONE who I am choosing to meet with.

The funny thing is that I am not

CONFUSED or DISTRACTED

by anything or any thought or anyone right now

because

THE PEACE THAT TRANSCENDS ALL UNDERSTANDING

fills my whole being.

Hmm..

Oh now it is becoming so clear as I think about

Eve

living the life in PEACEFUL perfect paradise

and then

CONFUSION & DISTRACTION

enter in without her even looking for it~

battling for her

PEACE

the moment the words

"Did GOD really say..." (Genesis 3:1)

came to

CONFUSE & DISTRACT

her to the point of her believing & receiving

the

CONFUSION & DISTRACTION

of

DOUBT

that showed up in an innocent piece of fruit.

It only took a second to take a bite of

CONFUSION & DISTRACTION

to take away

THE PEACE OF GOD

that was also in the garden.

Wow.

As we have the

PERFECT PEACE that lives inside of us,

yet it takes one second to

invite in

CONFUSION & DISTRACTION

with one little bite of doubt

as we question~

"Did GOD really say..."

Oh the battle is real

as I didn't come to my early meeting with

GOD

with

CONFUSION & DISTRACTION,

yet it still strives to steal away

HIS PERFECT PEACE that now washes over me.

Oh how today will be different

as my awareness has peeked

to the power of

CONFUSION & DISTRACTION

that shows up when you least expect it,

that strives to take over your mind, body & soul~

yet never wins the battle

because

we know the destiny of the crafty one who loves to plant

CONFUSION & DISTRACTION

in our moments with the words of

doubt~

"Did GOD really say"

because we

know that what

GOD DOES SAY

is HIS WORD

&

nothing trumps TRUTH~

"For all the promises of GOD find their Yes in HIM" (2 Corinthians 1:20)

Oh 2020 here we come

because

JESUS IS MORE THAN A RESOLUTION~

HE IS

"THE WAY" (listen to the song below)
