Day 28: Unboring


I am pretty BORING.

I spend most of my time

with my nose in the BIBLE.

But then again,

that is what saved me.

The moment I saw with my own eyes

that the word "ANXIOUS" was in the bible,

I was blown away,

as "ANXIETY" was my middle name.

And to think that GOD actually cares about ANXIETY~

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to GOD. And the peace of GOD, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in CHRIST JESUS" (Philippians 4:6-7)

But GOD goes beyond caring because HE actually wanted "my"

ANXIETY.

Has anyone ever asked you to give them all

"your"

ANXIETY

FEAR

DOUBT?

Can you imagine the weight that the person would choose to carry?

Really think about it.

So maybe I don't mind being

BORING.

Oh GOD is so personal as HIS WORD is a love letter.

I remember that first moment when I absorbed every WORD

so that

HIS PEACE overwhelmed my whole being,

replacing the ANXIETY that used to overwhelm me all the time,

so that REAL CHANGE began to happen in my life,

because HE pierced my heart.

So when I questioned myself this morning

about my being

BORING

because I spend too much time in THE WORD,

GOD showed up

to remind me that

I need HIS WORD

as I am nothing without HIM.

So meet BORING me

who needs my GOD

who GRACEFULLY loved me back together

the day HE introduced me to HIS SON~

the ONE who continually

amazes me

as HE goes beyond asking for "my" ANXIETY

as HE wants all "my"

FAILURES

MISTAKES

IMPERFECTIONS.

And I was so baffled

to why a PERFECT GOD

would receive such an

IMPERFECT me.

And once again GOD answered me~

"How? you ask. In CHRIST. GOD put the wrong on HIM who never did anything wrong, so we could be put right with GOD" (2 Corinthians 5:20).

So I think I am good with being BORING

because BORING brings me

closer to the ONE

who turns BORING into

the

ABUNDANT LIFE

that overwhelms me

because

JESUS

"transcends all understanding".

Who can fathom

a GOD

who really wants all "your" stuff

that HIS SON takes upon HIMSELF?

Want to be BORING?

And all it takes is to just do what

JESUS asks~

"FOLLOW ME" (listen to the song below)
