Smack Dab In The Middle

So the thing is this, what to do when inner self finds inner self smack-dab in the middle of where you don’t want to be? Right in the middle of hard places and no, you didn’t even choose it with bad choices, but it seems standing up for the good, and for the right placed you right there in the wrong. Where do you go with that? Where do you go when smack-dab in the middle of wrong is really the right place but the oh so difficult place for you to be? Mom, sometimes it’s you there on the bad end of kid’s choices, when standing up for the truth, puts you in the bad books! Worker, teacher, whoever you are sitting there in the wrong because of the right, you fill in the blanks of your life here in this uncomfortable place to be and beautiful soul, if it’s your spot for now, you gotta know, It’s the corner where our Lord refreshes, comforts, soothes and eases the tension and the pressure. It’s where He whispers out from under the weight of His cross and then shouts through the victory of the empty tomb, through the vastness of His love, grace and mercy, and in His own way, customized just for us, He reminds us to let Him take it. So you and I and we and us, Let’s let Him be all that we need for this. Allow Him to take it, manage it and perfect it. He’s got it so don’t fret your beautiful soul with its shenanigans and yeah, the thing is, in the big picture, remember the right side of the cross was so wrong in the hands of the angry mobs, but yet so perfect and so needed for the Father’s perfected work in the world and for the world.

Our Saviour who knew no sin, no wrong, yet suffered in its grip all for our sake, knew the hard place in life. He lived the right! He lived the Truth and took the beating and He took the wrong. So, you there, right there where you don’t want to be ~ when standing for the right and the good places you in the wrong don’t forget about the cross of Christ.

Yeah, He had the cross! He took the cross! He suffered the cross and all the stuff that went with it, and our Lord has this hard place for you and He’s perfecting that which concerns you. It takes time, because He does it so right and so well and so perfect and so timely, so let Him be all that for you for now. Let Him be that sweet peace and glorious rejuvenation in your tough corner for now. The Apostle Paul knew of His perfected and ongoing work in his own life when he penned the words in Philippians 1: 6, “For I am confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will continue to perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.”


“Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch forth Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, And Your right hand will save me. The LORD will accomplish what concerns me; Your loving-kindness, O LORD, is everlasting; Do not forsake the works of Your hands.”
Psalm 138: 7, 8

“Faithful is He that calls you, who also will do it.”
1 Thessalonians 5:24

  1. Thank you for your post this morning, Kay! It is true, sometimes I find myself trying to figure out what I did wrong to end up in a tough spot. But then I’m reminded of the cross, and how Jesus did nothing wrong and still experienced suffering. We can somehow find joy in the midst of our troubles when we place our hope in Him. Blessings Kay!


    • Thank you Sarah for your encouragement! The really tough thing to wrap our head around is finding ourselves in a hard place for standing for the right thing. That’s so difficult isn’t it? Sometimes it’s not even our enemies but those we considered friends that put us there. I’m so delighted that we could connect through our blogs. You have a blessed day Sara!
