"Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now." Matthew 6:34a The Message
There has been something hanging for a while now in my life, the details of which I cannot blog. It's a waiting for the shoe to fall kind of thing, and it's now falling. I want to say very clearly that I know that God is not doing this to me. This is not a "test" of my faith. But all the same, my faith is being pulled to its limits. This is the place where the rubber meets the road....do I believe in all of these things that I preach...yes, to others but mostly to myself...."Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life...Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don't get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes." Can I trust that no matter what happens, all will be well somehow? Do I really know that I am called to this place for this time to do this work, all of it, and that God will help me deal with this hard thing that is part of it? Can I claim myself in darkness as well as light and know that this too is what God is doing?
