It’s Complicated

This is a picture of my brain. No… this is a picture of my thoughts.

I have been hearing a lot of good messages. The issue is my past experience has created broken pathways between my head and my heart. What does that even mean?

For me it means what I hear, what I learn, I believe is true. At the same time, I struggle with living it out in my life. Somewhere I am broken.

I once thought I could never be great spiritually. I was doomed to be just an ordinary person. I was nothing special and I hoped God would still love me.

Now, I’m beginning to question this thinking. What if I’m shortchanging God’s intentions for me. What if I can walk with Him in the garden in the cool of the day? What if I can have that relationship of a daughter with her Father? What if there are miracles waiting to happen?

Know that the Lord, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.

Psalms‬ ‭100:3‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

This verse was read at church this weekend. What stood out to me was that we do not make ourselves, God does. The question I should be asking is what does God want to make of me? Am I willing to lay down my past notions and let Him work? Yes.

Are there thoughts or experiences from your past you would be willing to lay down?

Grace & Peace,
