Day 29: Stand Still


You just can't stop thinking about it.

It just won't go away,

because it is important to you.

HE can't stop thinking about it either,

because it is important to you.

Oh how our REAL GOD

isn't sitting quiet behind the scenes

WAITING for something to change

as HE is the change

in the moment.

even if things aren't changing.

But it feels like your

REAL LIFE

has come to a standstill

as you are still WAITING

for that something or someone.

And then you do the one thing

that makes WAITING no longer a WAIT

as

PATIENCE overcomes you

as a supernatural

PEACE overcomes you

as a supernatural

HOPE becomes your anchor

because

you can't do what only

GOD can do.

So you raise the

flag of surrender

to the ONE who never changes~

but changes you & changes your

REAL STORY

in the midst of whatever chapter you are living in

because

HIS PEACE does transcend all understanding.

HIS HOPE keeps the WAIT bearable.

HIS JOY is so overwhelming

when you & I

come to a standstill

in the midst of a standstill

with the

ONE who never stands still

because

HE is STILL writing

your REAL STORY & my REAL STORY

and oh how

it is such a beautiful STORY

right now in the

MIDDLE OF WAIT

because

HE is STILL with us

& will always be with us

walking so close to us

as we continue to

walk so close to

A REAL GOD

with

A REAL JESUS

who has taken the sting of

WAITING away

because

HE IS

about right now

this very moment

as HE walks with us &

as we walk with HIM

in every WAITING moment.

And then the supernatural becomes

REAL

so ABUNDANTLY REAL

because

IN JESUS

everything comes to a

STANDSTILL

a glorious

STANDSTILL

as we remain so

STILL IN HIM

that WAITING isn't WAIT anymore

because

HE becomes everything that you have always been

WAITING for.

So you decide to get up~

pressing forward in your current chapter of your story

& become

WAITLESS

because

JESUS is in the WAIT.

Therefore~

"Strip down, start running—and never quit!

No extra spiritual fat, no parasitic sins.

Keep your eyes on JESUS, who both began and finished this race we’re in.

Study how HE did it. Because HE never lost sight of where HE was headed—

that exhilarating finish in and with GOD—HE could put up with anything along the way:

Cross, shame, whatever.

And now HE'S there, in the place of honor, right alongside GOD.

When you find yourselves flagging in your faith,

go over that story again, item by item,

that long litany of hostility he plowed through.

That will shoot adrenaline into your souls!" (Hebrews 12:2-3)

So WAITING isn't so bad anymore.

REAL LIFE. REAL STORY. REAL GOD.

Oh Let's WAIT together

&

"TURN OUR EYES" (listen to the song below)
