I love long showers, I mean who doesn’t? I do because a lot of my thinking and praying gets done under a nice warm shower …
Today was not the exception, I have been troubled by a few things, and my mind has been going wild and free, and “wild” until today when it was stopped by the Holy Spirit…
“Sometimes we think we are trusting Him for the outcome in our lives yet we continue to manipulate the outcome and working it out because we simply don’t trust God in some areas, some compartments of our hearts are not yet opened to be confronted and enlightened…
So we try, and try and try until we figure we have no control… We argue with The Lord and shower Him with all kinds of questions based on our perspective and unmet needs… Oh dear Jesus I just have to know because I just got to have control!!!
The reality is that we ARE MORE in control when WE are not.
When we are working on our own outcome we are focused on us, on what we can do, on what we can materialize because we are desperate and we just have “to see it”
We got to see the “it” that is the thing we think we need, we need “it” now, therefore I can’t wait for You Lord to bring it to pass, I will do it and will do it “In the Name of Jesus” tho He has nothing to do with it.
As the water mixed in with my amazement I realized that looking at myself for the outcome of my life or even looking at the people around me for it only shows how much I believe in my own ability over Jesus’ … It sounds crazy! But all of us experience this at some point in our lives, some people breaks thru this enigma, others don’t.
One more area of my life has been re-directed, thank You Holy Spirit.
“Turn your eyes upon Jesus.
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace…”
