Wait on the Lord

It was hard for me to get out of bed this morning and get going. Have you ever had those days that you seemed to be running on empty? Or beyond that–even running on the gas fumes lol?

The Lord has been reminding me here lately if I’m too busy to pray or read His Word–I’m just too busy period. Everything can wait till we seek His face.

The enemy can run us pure ragged, if we let him. It’s one of his tactics. To wear us out. Make us give up this race.

Don’t stop. Keep going. You don’t have time for THIS!!! THAT can wait later. HURRY. You are late. You didn’t pray again? Just pray on the way there…Where’s that To Do List again?….Oh, I forgot to find that receipt to exchange that item from the store….Eek! I forgot to pay the car insurance!Does any of this ring a bell to you or can you relate?

This morning I was startled to hear a car horn blowing in my driveway. I muttered under my breathe, “Now who could that be? The mail carrier? I haven’t ordered anything….”

I peeked out the window and saw my SIL (sister-in-law) getting out of her car. I gasped and ran out the door in my pj’s.

Oh no! 😱😭 I had forgotten to meet her at 9:00 a.m. at Walmart to get Chelsea’s baby shower gift for tomorrow. She won’t be able to make it. I apologized profusely!

Last night I was trying to set aside a time to do my checking account statement. I got 2 texts. One says call me.

So busy. Not enough time. But the Lord has been really impressing that the devil will keep abusing you if you keep letting him, slinging you around like a rag doll.

Shut the phone off. Unplug from social media. Turn that tv off. Put on some Christian worship music. Get to bed earlier. Get up earlier to meet with God. Go to your HAPPY Place.

So, I just shut all activities down after my SIL left. Went to my Happy Place. My porch as you all know. This song kept playing in my mind, so I looked it up and listened…Listen to the words. Let His Presence speak to your heart and soul.

I worshipped with tears flowing down my face. I prayed in the Spirit. I didn’t have the words, so I let Jesus make intercession for me. I don’t know what I would do if I could not feel His Presence!

I know there are some who have never felt that sweet peaceful Presence of His. It is so real and tangible! I suggest if you are hungry and thirsty for that Living Water, He will meet you right there in your home! I have heard of people being filled with the Holy Ghost/Spirit right in their living room by themselves. Just Jesus and them.

We are living in a face-paced world! And it’s amping up…We can’t make it without Him! We’ll buckle under the pressure. The heavy burden will crush us.

I had another post I was going to post today, but it will wait.

“Pile your troubles on God’s shoulders–He’ll carry your load, He’ll help you out.”–Psalms 55:22

Jesus said, “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest.”–Matthew 11:28

Bravely Seated

She attends church by herself. Every Sunday morning. Every Sunday night. Every Wednesday night. With the diligence a mail carrier models, she treks through the days, and shoulders through the rain, sleet and snow, into her fierce trials and disappointments.

There was a time–previously in her fond memories–where they all stood as a family, on the old familiar pew. Together was once a feeling of familiarity and comfort. Even though her circumstances have changed, somehow she knows she isn’t truly alone.

Bravely, she takes a seat, hands clasped, fingers locked tight with her promises. “God has seen his ways, and will heal him”….”They will come again to their own border….”

And there is hope in thine end, saith the LORD, that thy children shall come again to their own border.” Jeremiah 31:17

Seated together. Hope. Promises. God. She is not alone.
