Have you ever felt like you were in the wilderness? Now I don’t mean literally but just in life in general. Where you have felt like God was stripping things off of you but at the time you didn’t realize what was going on? I am raising my hand like crazy over here on the other side of the computer screen.
For about a year I felt like I was just walking in the wilderness, where God was taking things out of my life that I thought were meant to be there. I have felt like I have been in a haze of just wondering what was next, wondering really who I was in Him. And sometimes we can blame the enemy for those feelings but I truly believe God will allow times of haze for us to learn something.
And I am learning so much lately. It is like He is taking off the blinders in so many areas in my life. I am finally catching on that this time that I have been going through is for a greater reason and I am just beginning to see it unfold. When God calls us to higher places, there are usually things in our life that we are supposed to sacrifice. I honestly believe that’s why a lot of people get stuck in the same hamster wheel over and over and over. We have such a hard time letting go of things. Why is that? And you have been there – don’t act like you haven’t! There are things in our lives that we recognize on a daily that we know we have to let go of, but for some reason our grip is so tight.
Its time that we finally release the things God is asking us to let go. Do we not trust Him enough that He will provide? That there is a bigger reason to why He is asking us to release those things? His ways are higher than our ways and just because we may not understand everything He does, doesn’t mean we have to doubt His plans for us.
What He has for our lives is far greater than anything we can imagine. If we just learn to be obedient and die to ourselves, His plan will begin to unfold!
Oh and we have some major things brewing in our lives and the people around us! Hopefully within the next couple of weeks I’ll be able to explain more and let you in on what God is doing.
Be back soon and remember its time to Let It Go! (now you are singing it, don’t lie)
