Out For Recycle

So, ok! You know God has this, whatever it is you’ve got on your mind and your heart. Whatever it is that’s being difficult for you to manage. You know for sure He’s right there in the middle of it right? I know that we know He takes the bad, blesses it in recycle and makes good of it! Yeah, we do know that don’t we? We really do know that! But when He has to take the bad, to use it for good, it’s really hard on the rest of us isn’t it? If only, oh if only, He could just always use the good, and not have to take us through the thicket of consequences and the trenches of pitfalls. We’re thankful and blessed that He can do it and does it to perfection but it’s those hard places in the getting from the bad to the good that are so difficult to maneuver through and around and in and out of.

We need to remember in the hard places there’s been no abandonment. God hasn’t left us! He has not thrown us aside for something better. No… He’s just got to take this old sinful world with it’s pathetic baggage and tweak it here and fine tune it there to redeem it, make it of some value, as He works it out for our good and His glory. But He’s with us through the confusion and chaos of it all. He’s walking us through the consequences of the bad.

David knew! He knew that his life was all fashioned out and planned by a brilliant, loving God who cared compassionately about his situation and his outlandish circumstances. In Psalm 139:16, he confirms it in his mind, heart and soul when he vocally proclaims to the LORD, “You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in Your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. How precious are Your thoughts about me, O God. They can not be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! When I wake up You are still with me!

David’s sense of perception of His LORD, led him to a sweet place of awe before his awesome God, who was in complete control of all things. Whether good or bad, he knew God had complete understanding and a strength and ability to work it out. So can we! In our highs and lows we can know, Romans 8:28, “That in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
So when He has to recycle the wrong, He has to recycle our worry into TRUST, our fear into COURAGE, and our doubt into FAITH. Then He can work it out and fashion a new hope for our road ahead bringing a new joy and a new peace into the hard place!

Hit And Run?


So there’s a lot of us wondering just what’s around the next bend, the next winding curve, the next twist in the road. Yeah, so many bends, twists and curves in the way of this life isn’t there? So many issues that just pop up out of no where and have every intent to take us down with defeat. Truth is, sometimes they do take us down and take us over with their overwhelming heaviness and ‘no sense’ logic. They warp our minds and our hearts and leave us reeling right there smack dab in the middle of life and just when good things were happening too.

What do we do with that? What do we do with the nonsense distractions that take our focus from the good things in the journey and try to fragment our spirit with a hit and run collision? Those issues don’t stop to consult or discuss, they just ~ well, they just hit and run and leave us trampled and bruised. No answers and with really so much chaos there are no questions.
David was there at that bend, at the twist in the road ~ that winding curve, when the collision overwhelmed him. In Psalm 142: 1 – 7 the Psalmist reaches a point of despair when he cries out to the Lord…

“I cry out to the LORD; I plead for the LORD’S mercy. I pour out my complaints before Him and tell Him my troubles. When I am overwhelmed, You alone know the way I should turn. Wherever I go, my enemies have set traps for me. I look for someone to come and help me but no one gives me a passing thought. No one will help me, no one cares a bit what happens to me. …..Oh, but David in verse 5, though very low in spirit, very alone in the journey, so lonely and entrapped in his prison of harassment by foes, knows that his trust still remains in the LORD, who is his life, and he directs his focus back to the LORD’S goodness and protection. He knows that he knows his Redeemer and then yeah, what does he do? He offers praise in the hardship. Let’s do it! Let’s offer praise to our maker even for the problem.

Beautiful soul, if you’re having a bad day and that twist in the road is a sharp one, and that hit and run has left you beaten, drag your beautiful self into God’s presence and read the words of David in Psalm 143 then say with him in 143: 10, “Teach me to do Your will, for you are my God. May Your gracious spirit lead me forward, on a firm footing.” Then pray for God’s goodness to overwhelm you today and shut out the no logic nonsense of harsh distractions. God’s got this road for you, Father filtered it is and comes with His protection and safe keeping. Stay with Him! Walk with Him! Find peace in His presence and joy in His light!

Give It Over One More Time

So you and I and we and us, we sometimes find it difficult to just ‘let go’ of the heap of stuff that nips at our heels breaking into our day, and dragging on into the dark of our sleepless nights! We give it over and we take it back. Oh yeah, over and over again we do and time and time again these things trip us up and defy our faith and our trust in the God that we know really cares about us. He’s graced us with His favor in a lifetime of blessing and yet, these issues creep into the nooks and crannies and small moments of the day to steal from us. Yeah, they do! They rob us of joy if our eyes aren’t focused properly on the God in control of it all. Eyes fixed on the problems turn even small things into overwhelming moments,huge hurdles and big days to navigate through. Sometimes we may find that we don’t do so well on the journey and weariness sets in and looms heavy about our hearts and our heads. Well, beautiful soul, give it and all of it over once more to the God in charge! The One who holds you in the dark nights, in the storms, in the rough waters, and carries you through the fire unscathed and unharmed. He knows you through and through; your fears, your worries, your insecurities, your weaknesses. Yeah, He made you from scratch and no one understands you like He does. Let Psalm 139: 13 -14 refresh your memory for now, let it sink in deep. “Certainly you made my mind and heart; you wove me together in my mother’s womb. I will give you thanks because your deeds are awesome and amazing. You knew me thoroughly;” Did you get that? His deeds are awesome and amazing! You are His creation ~ yeah, awesome and amazing you and you can know that not one thing will touch you that He doesn’t allow. So tuck that under your soft pillow tonight and rest on it. Relax in His presence and focus on God’s goodness. He knows you inside out and He got solutions for all that information overload jammed into your mind and all that heap of stuff on your plate. Breathe and ask His counsel. Don’t forget to listen. His words are wisdom and truth. He won’t lead you off track.

Isaiah 55: 8-9
“Indeed, my plans are not like your plans, and my deeds are not like your deeds, for just as the sky is higher than the earth, so my deeds are superior to your deeds and my plans superior to your plans. For just as the sky is higher than the earth, so my deeds are superior to your deeds and my plans superior to your plans.
