To everything there is a season, and a time for every matter or purpose under heaven:
A time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to pluck up what is planted,
A time to kill and a time to heal, a time to break down and a time to build up,
A time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance,
A time to cast away stones and a time to gather stones together, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
A time to get and a time to lose, a time to keep and a time to cast away,
A time to rend and a time to sew, a time to keep silence and a time to speak,
A time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.
It feels like I am sitting on a chair or a couch and they are being moved around the room, in and out of different rooms looking for the right fit.
And I have nothing to say about what room they should go in, nor where they should go in each room, nor how long they should stay there. When in the middle of a thing, of change(s)....
Being quiet, seeking what I have missed, because, I now there is much I miss every day, I need to know what I have missed. I need to learn what perspective is best for me now...
I keep thinking about the natural seasonal changes that we are within now, and how I feel aligned with the pace of it. As I think about it, I feel aligned with all of them as they each pass through.
I keep hearing, when the leaves are all on the ground, you should be finished with all things you need to let go of also!
Laid, fell, or thrown, but on the ground.
I know all this is a part of this season of letting go. I've been knowing this for some time now, and have clarity as I look through all the baggage that the Lord holds open for me to decide what I am going to do with it all.
He is asking, do you still feel you need this, and why?
Did you know that trees literally cut the leaf free from itself and that is why it falls to the ground? I learned this a few years ago and it has always stayed on my mind and is recalled at certain times of the year.
God's Love continually prepares us for what we are expecting from God. I am not trying to preserve the temporary that God used/uses to get me from there to here. Just because the thing/person that God used is gone/ is going, and I am not at the end of this, does not mean God has not already lined up another way to get me to the next destination.
Being quiet and still as I am being moved through the details of the changes..... watching, waiting till they are complete for this season, for this cycle.
Not trying to hold on to any person that has decided to move away, not by God's decision, but by their own. I will let them go.
Accepting the truth that some I used to trust, have shown me I can't trust them now.
Facing the challenges that changes create with Truth, Faith, Boldness, Peace and Joy, because I know, how the challenges make me feel is not powerful unless I allow them to be powerful. I have come too far to allow emotions to govern me.
Because I know, that these challenges are temporary and will bring me into the Best God has for me and mine!
I am Not moving outside of God's boundaries around me and mine.
Making sure that every idea that pops into my mind is From God, and not from any places in me that are still in need of healing and deliverance. Not from ego, pride, or any place like that.
I am not trying to pull anything or any person into The boundaries God put around me and mine.
I am not ever on my own, going back to places or people that God cut away from me, or moved to a different place in my life.
If they have no purpose in God's plans for me, that is the end.
Surrendering to God's re-alignment to happen as He has planned.
To take me out of every place that I stepped wrongly into and place me where I should be.
Remembering that many people love me, call on me, want to be around me, as long as I am helping them through their mess and issues.
I realize some were only there for that moment, that I was only in their lives for a moment, but some others were to stay, but decided to do other things aligned to their ideas.
Not going to allow what I don't know to hinder me. I've not allowed the unknowns, the "what's and if's" to control me up to this point, and I'll not be fooled into allowing them to control me now.
Remembering that I am prepared for what I am expecting from God.
This process.... that I am in the middle of, it's not over--it turns and twists into the next phase of what God has planned...seeking clarity, understanding, connections, and God's Outcome as I am calmed and shown what He's all about....
Trusting all the way through...Not fighting the changes, that makes no sense anyway, since I can't do anything to stop them, hinder them, etc...
Not holding back from accepting what the changes bring into my life or take away.
God's changes are always the Best for me.
The Peace and Joy Jesus Gave to me, are my foot holds, are my places to sit, are the cool drink of water I need, are the pieces of bread I eat.
Praising my way through, focused on His Love as I am moved through the process of these changes.....
I am receiving from God what I asked Him for, though I have no idea about the details, nor the order, timing or pace of what He is doing, I Trust Him for Providing everything I Need.
To God Be The Glory, In the name of Jesus
On feet of Faith & Peace Resting In His Peace & Faithfulness,
One Day At A Time By Radical Faith.
