God's Timing

I've had this thought on my mind a lot.

"Being in position for God"


So naturally this meant, time to write.    ðŸ˜Š


Here I am so many paths before me. Some I look down are lit up by rays of bright sunshine. Others are shrouded in a misty haze and others are dark as a back street in the mountains.


Which path will I end up on?


I feel like my future is out of my control.


And I began to react as I usually do when I'm not in control ...


I rant.


I complain.


I grow angry and bitter.


I get scared.


Anxiety ramps up.


And then I hear a voice, "Will you choose this time to grow through this season of difficulty? Will you choose to see my hand? Will you choose to surrender to my hand in all of this?"


Will you let ME position you?


Suddenly, it was like my eyes were opened and I could see a greater purpose!


The questions were still there. Job, house, teen, husband, ministry.... but suddenly I saw beyond my mountain to the One who had the power to, not only change my circumstance, but ME in the process.


You see, it's not always about God moving mountains, but rather the opportunity we have to grow as we choose to allow Him to teach us new responses to uncertain and frustrating circumstances.


Move thru the mountain.....


In that moment I chose to surrender to  God, to surrender to his great plans for me....Magnificent, Grand plans for me!


Each step of the way I will praise the Lord for his amazing miracles, knowing that my response to Him positions me to be able to receive his gifts: the ability to watch Him do what seems impossible to do!


You see, our response to difficult times and seemingly impossible situations is critical to being positioned to seeing God's hand at work!


I believe there are many times we miss this opportunity because we are not positioned properly.


Just like in sports: football, basketball, baseball ... for a player to make the winning toss, touch down, or home run, they have to be positioned properly to receive the ball!


Position is vital.... to them ... and to us.


"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ"

Ephesians1:3


We have been blessed with EVERY SPIRITUAL BLESSING in heavenly places thru Christ!


The question is, are we positioned to receive them?


They are already there, but are we partaking of them?


God wants to position us for all the wins! We just need to keep our eyes on him.


Lastly, as I'm typing this Gods leading me to Romans 12:2


"And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and PERFECT will of God"

Let God position you for the winning move!


Right. Thru. Your. Mountain!

Peace Love Fire & Light
