The morning started off roughly. Wasn’t sure what was really going on. Tears seem to creep up to the overflow status and just waver there. I put on a worship CD and began to sing as I got ready for work.
I have learned that when I change my focus from me to my Creator, my Father, I can see more clearly.
I spent four decades running from place to place, job to job even church to church. I never found what I was looking for.
You see our happiness, our destiny was formed even before we were. Ephesians 1 says:
He deposited these treasures within me, but I was looking outward. When I began to look within and deal with the things that were not God, there was finally change.
When we find God in the little things, then we need to tuck ourselves up under His wings like a baby chick does with her mother hen. Our Father loves us and we need to hear His heartbeat for our lives.
Most of my life, when things got too intense, I ran to avoid the pain. I hated confrontation. Soon I found I had gone full circle and this unresolved issue was facing me once again. How many times did I want to go around the mountain? How many times did I want to sing the same song, different verse?
It isn’t running away that works, it is drawing closer.
