When you go to new places, it’s helpful to have clear directions because vague is the road to lost. So when we follow God, we like to have clarity. Watch this video for some help with clear directions:
I’m learning in the concussion recovery process that sometimes I don’t see well. Indeed, on Monday I visited an eye dr who specializes in vision help for people with brain injuries. My appointment showed me some interesting problems with my vision that I wasn’t aware of – my peripheral vision is messed up, my depth perception is off & sometimes my visions gets blurry because my brain is tired. All of these difficulties have come from hitting my head really hard.
Sometimes I think there’s a parallel truth that happens in our lives. If we go through a traumatic event, let’s be really careful that our perspective doesn’t get changed in negative & debilitating ways. Let’s be sure to keep our eyes on Jesus & our hearts tenderly in love with Him, being fully confident that He is working out everything to be a blessing & not a curse to us – Rom 8:28 🙂
Feel free to pass this along to any friends who might be in s difficult season!
This morning I read about how Jacob dreamed about a ladder from heaven to earth & how God spoke with him about keeping Jacob safe, providing for him & returning him to his homeland – all at night time.
It seems to me that we frequently want to avoid what is dark, obscure, unclear & uncertain. We find comfort in the known, boundaries & what we can see, feel & understand. At the same time, we must admit that knowing God is most certainly the adventure of a lifetime, the most wild ride with the Infinite, overflowing with genuine love.
Jacob said “yes” to God, he accepted the unknown in the middle of darkness & began his awesome adventure with God – let’s GO!!! Say “yes” to God, even when you don’t understand, in the middle of darkness, obscurity & uncertainty. Genuine Love is waiting for your “yes” 🙂
