Where from here...

I've started reading Habakkuk and only made it to verse 5 of the 1st chapter yesterday which says "For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told." Now I know God was giving "Baky" a promise about the deliverance of the people from the Babylonians, but let me tell you the Lord gave me a Word for my life.

I think about all that's happened/is happening in my life and I KNOW and BELIEVE that the Lord is doing something that is UNBELIEVABLE to me! I just can't hardly wait to see what it is. Then today I made it to verse 3 of the 2nd chapter which says "For the revelation awaits an appointed will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay." Does that hit anyone like it does me? Somebody wants to say "There is a God in heaven"! God is promising me that He will reveal His plan for my life. All He asks of me is to wait, trust Him and wait.

Now please don't think I'm "spiritual" enough to tell you that yes I can wait - I can't! I want to know NOW!! I want direction NOW!! I want clarification NOW!! Boy does that sound like my 4 yr old! God isn't sitting up there withholding things to torment me or make me angry, but He's simply creating His Divine Special Effects on my life! (Right Beth Moore girls?)

He is so good, ya'll! I mean really good! It's taken me a LONG time to figure out that He truly wants to give me abundant life, but I'm the one that keeps getting in His way and messing up His plan. If I can be still long enough to KNOW that He is God, He'll work. He'll move. He'll fix it. He'll make it better! Now that I FINALLY get that I feel like a 100 lb weight has been lifted from me! I'm FREE! INDEED! I pray that you know His blissful freedom. Not drudgery servitude but FREEDOM people!!!

"Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance, I just wanna praise You, I just wanna praise You. You broke the chains now I can lift my hands and I'm gonna praise You, I'm gonna praise You!" (you know you were singin along! teehee)

I'm glad to know I'm not in this battle alone!! God is good to show me that I'm never alone in the battles I face!! Blessings to you this day!!!

Oh, man! We've been on the same sheet of music these days. I KNOW THAT I KNOW THAT I KNOW and then something happens and I get all antsy and want to know RIGHT THEN AND THERE how this thing is going to end. I get all stressed out and make everyone around me stressed out and then as always, God proves Himself faithful and I'm standing there feeling like an idiot for getting antsy. I don't do the waiting game well at all.

How's this for a little walk down memory lane......

"I'm alive, alive, alive hallelujah, alive, praise and glory to the Lamb."
