I don’t even know why I am posting. I want to have something to say, but my head is so full of the events of this week.
God is faithful. I am not.
I have been shaken. I have fallen. I am still standing, but only by the grace of my God.
He lifted me out of the pit of despair,
out of the mud and the mire.
He set my feet on solid ground
and steadied me as I walked along.
I am still struggling with the concept of a vow to God. I am not capable of keeping it perfectly, but does that mean I should not make one? That I should not aim to be true to Him?
Had bouts with fear this week on so many levels. Including, but not limited to, a man who came to our door and scared me so bad I slammed the door in his face, locked it, and called 911. I have not been so shaken up in my life.
A dear friend of mine shared her thoughts with me on the shaking that is going on. She said she also went through a time of shaking that was from God. I would like to believe, and am choosing to do so, that all of this is part of God’s plan and that I’m going to come out of this on the other side with a bunch of things removed from me that need to be.
Be careful that you do not refuse to listen to the One who is speaking. For if the people of Israel did not escape when they refused to listen to Moses, the earthly messenger, we will certainly not escape if we reject the One who speaks to us from heaven! When God spoke from Mount Sinai his voice shook the earth, but now he makes another promise: “Once again I will shake not only the earth but the heavens also.” This means that all of creation will be shaken and removed, so that only unshakable things will remain. Since we are receiving a Kingdom that is unshakable, let us be thankful and please God by worshiping him with holy fear and awe. For our God is a devouring fire.
Lord, let what remains of me be only unshakable You.
