Bezt Plase Ev-er

Abandoned and rejected, the walls grew tall
Surrounding and hiding a heart broken and in pieces
Conditioned to believe no worth was in this life
Your truth began to break through the lies
Your Love came like a flood and drew me in
From loneliness in the street, to warmth in Your house
In place of a family characterized by violence and anger
A husband whose gentle Love an earthly example of Yours
Children whose smiles and hugs bring healing each day
Friends whose faithfulness restores the ability to trust

Yet, through it all, the biggest desire remains unfulfilled
To connect to You as the Father who knows my name
The insecurity of a step child seeking the attention of ‘Dad’
Feeling prayers answered only if You have spare time
A yearning so strong, yet a fear so overwhelming
Trying clumsily to get to You but never getting near
Knowing that if Your awesome Presence was realized
Your life giving power would penetrate my soul

At last one day these ears heard You whisper my name
Running into Your arms, my joy now complete
Clinging to Your neck, my head resting upon Your shoulder
Never gonna leave because THIS is the best place ever!

AxXess To God’z PreZenze

In seeking God’s presence, it’ s not about what we deserve. If it was, we wouldn’t have anything coming to us. It’s about the fact that He made the choice to die for us BEFORE we were born. He made the choice to forgive us BEFORE we sinned. He made the choice to Love us BEFORE we knew and Loved Him. God is a God of great mercy and graciousness. Doubts and fears are just poisonous arrows that keep us at an unnecessary distance from Him. He didn’t go through all that He went through just to abandon us. He did it so that He would always have access to us, and us access to Him. If we could just set aside our blinders of insecurity, we would notice there is a clear path and open doorway that lead directly to His throne!! Instead of letting the worries of this world ensnare and enslave you, focus on one of the great promises He gave to us:

“Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart, I will be found by you” declares The Lord…” Jer 29:12-14a

The key words here are “with all your heart”. If your heart is crowded with sin, doubt, insecurity,fear and worry, you can’t seek Him with all of your heart. Keeping your heart clean and clear is a daily thing that has to happen at His throne. It may even need to happen several times a day!! All that matters is that you make your way to His throne and then make a continual choice to stay there! Don’t let the enemy move you because, through the authority and power that you have through Christ, he has no ability to do so! He can ONLY be successful at pulling you away if YOU let him. It is solely by keeping your eyes and focus on God that you will never give the enemy room in your life!!

Abandon yourself to God and let Him transform you into the person He originally created you to be! Acknowledge Him in all your ways and trust Him wholeheartedly to lead you in ways and directions that are bigger than you could ever think or dream of for yourself!!! And in making your way to His throne remember to approach it with confidence:

“Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” Heb 4:16

So lot’s of things have been happening over the last few months and I have been super busy. Now that things have slowed down, I have time to think and that is doing me no favors today. My job is not, to be kind, an ideal place to be. I came on, initially, to help a friend, but it has turned into a VERY difficult place to walk into every day. My struggle is that because it is where I spend most of my time, it stinks. As for my friend, well, I feel like I am slowly losing that friendship with him, who also happens to be my boss, because I have lost so much respect for him as a business person. His lack of leadership has caused his entire team to crumble. He once had the full support from one other employee and myself, but unfortunately, even that is fading into oblivion. I feel terrible because I don’t take friendships lightly. They mean so much to me. Unfortunately, I can only do my best to hang on to this one but am not so sure I will be successful at it.

This is where I am facing my faith. I know I am not going to be here long-term, at least I hope not. So, while I am here, can I do it with a hopeful heart and a smile on my face that comes from a surety that my God has better plans for me? Can I really wait patiently when I FEEL so impatient. I almost feel like a caged lion…restless. I want to trust, I want to have faith, I want to believe I can do it. So now I have to make an intention choice on what I am going to do. Today, my choice is to do it God’s way, that’s the easy part. The challenge is overcoming the strong emotions that surge from my soul. If I can do that, then my faith will be legit and I will grow in character and integrity. Here’s prayin’!!!!
