When There's Nothing Left But God

When I awake, I wish I hadn't. When evening comes I thank God that it's all over, again, and sleep, the great eraser, is near. And in between it all, I busy myself with cleaning, creating something pin worthy, making some fabulous yummy that I can photograph and showcase, and it all says, "I've got it all going on". It's a lie more often than not{shhhhh, don't tell anyone}. One morning runs into another morning and then into an evening and another evening, and the only thing that changes is the date on the calendar. For as long as I can remember, my days have looked this way. Whether times were good, or really, really bad, one day mirrors the next. 


We're all broken in some way or another. We all fear whether others will think we are valuable. Are we doing it good enough or right enough? Then one day, when it's just another morning, anticipating just another evening, God shows up. God shows up and roars. God says, "seek me always, you're not lost, I know right where you are". I pick up my Bible and read and L-I-S-T-E-N. I pray for freedom. For heaven's sake God, FREE ME.



And He will- free us all, but we have to stay near to Him.... very near to Him, even when the good times are rollin'. That's the hard part, isn't it? To stay close even when life is good. That's when sometimes I loose sight of my Father- and the mornings get darker and the evenings seem so far away. Even the people that look like they have it all going on, might just not. They might be just as lost as the homeless man under the bridge..... just better at the illusion

Remember, you're not lost and neither am I- God knows right where we are, always.
