Alignment is the single word that God is impressing on me for 2012. Once we truly realize (and always remember) He is above all things, our problems, our pain and all the events of life that are swirling around us and threatening to overwhelm, then and only then can we rise above ANY circumstance and rest in His peace. Sometimes when I feel like I am sinking in one of those seas of circumstances a simple “help me Jesus” immediately draws me back into His comforting arms. Those arms are always there, He knows all my weaknesses and meets me in those moments as soon as I take the initiative to seek His face.
2 Cor 4:7-9
7 But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. 8 We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
Seeking alignment with Him, seeking His face is a daily journey of intimacy for me, it’s kinda like a treasure hunt. No it’s not always an easy road, hardships can be a part of the journey but what delight and a privilege to hang out with the Creator of the universe.
So I say all that to just encourage you to trust Him enough to believe He has a tremendous plan and purpose for your life. Guess what? God REALLY does love you. If God has a wallet, your picture is in it. If God has a refrigerator, your colorings from school are on the door . Trust Him enough to spend time with Him. Push aside those constant demands and you will find you can accomplish much more in less time if you give God time every day. As you align yourself with His perspective its so much easier to sort out what’s important and what’s not.
41 “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, 42 but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”
