Child of God! If you want God to answer your prayers,
you must be prepared to follow the footsteps of
' our father Abraham ' even to the Mount of Sacrifice." ( Romans 4:12)
(streams in the desert)
Whole-Souled...does wholeness come through troubled waters?
It is at this pivotal point that I've found myself in this week
I've realized that God is stirring the waters of my heart
through new eyes I'm beginning to see these hard places, trials and emergencies
are for my learning. To try out in " real life " what I'm learning on the inside.
He is taking my fingers
and gently undoing them from around the deceit and oppression that I have been
trusting in and placing those same fingers in His hand...showing me the
deep waters of trouble that have kept me from living life as He intended.
Ah Ha...this is why " It is not me that is seeking wholeness it is Him that has
initiated the wholeness with the stirring of the waters. "
Is this how the Great Physician heals hearts? by stirring up the waters so we can look
at the hunger that gnaws incessantly...inviting me to come.
He does allow us to choose doesn't He. He never forces.
I know to do so will be hard. I will have to sacrifice things I think I can't live without.
the hunger presses me forward though. to take that step down
into the deep troubled water...
and He waits for me there.
For an angel went down at certain times into the pool,
and stirred up the water.
Whoever stepped in first after the stirring of the water
was made whole of whatever disease he had. ( John 5:4 )
Are you holding anything back from God..thinking you could not live without it? Are you willing to take that step into the deep water...deeper faith? Have the waters of your heart been troubled? Are you longing for wholeness? Happy Holiday Weekend:)
