Working with God…

img_7890Often times, for me, life doesn’t make sense…

Of course, when I look back, it makes sense… I can see all of the dots connected, and I think, “well I guess it was good that I followed the Holy Spirit in that moment… Even when I was unsure about life”…

And that’s how I feel right now… Unsure… Unsure about so many different things about life… Unsure about my family’s and friends’s lives…

Sure of God and all of His promises, but then so unsure about how His promises will play out exactly…

I’ve come to believe that God and His promises are two different things entirely… Because my mind loves to try and figure out, piece together the “how”… How it will all come about…

And honestly, following the Holy Spirit isn’t always easy… Actually it is flat out frustrating at times… Especially when I still want to fix everything… And when I don’t want to be a team player…

Because for so many reasons I believe we can fix ourselves… That we hold the keys to fixing it all… But then, for so many reasons, well we don’t have that kind of power and authority on our own… But with God’s help through Jesus, I believe we do…

So then, for a moment, I rest in the reality of what I choose to believe so strongly… Because it’s what I’ve believed since I was a child, but then wrestled with for about 5-7 years, only to come back to all of it and realize “this is all real”… And that God never took away any of His words or promises at all… And that He is loyal, true… Through and through…

I believe that’s what we forget so often…. Or actually might not realize about the Father… He is as loyal as they come… Always, always, always there… No matter the party we vote for… Or what we believe as an individual… He loves each and everyone of us and sees the good in all of us… Why can’t that be a take home message that we all live our lives by?…

The truth that we are all loved by a creator… That since He created everything, meaning we are created in His image, that that automatically means He is the very foundation of life… The core of everything… The constant that can’t and won’t ever, ever be shaken… But will always be love… And will always love… He’s like a mountain… He never moves from who He is, which means we can rest in the fact that we will always have a identity and security…

And I believe, I believe that it’s really easy right now to throw a lot of hate… A lot of shame… A lot of opinion around…

But the reality, to me… Well, we all have a belief system… How we believe God views things.. And the truth is, I believe we are each holding a piece of the puzzle… All sides… All ethnicities… All religions… All sexual orientations… We all have a piece of the pie… And a lot of the time, we all believe our piece is “it”… The absolute answer…

But what if it’s just a piece?… What if working together is the only true way we all make it at the end of the day?… What if we have to take the outcomes of things like elections and choose to love each other regardless?…

And more than anything… What if part of working together means working with God?… Because I know for a fact that He tries His very, very best to always work with us… So that we can become better versions… So that we can have a greater quality of life…

So instead of sub-coming to fear of our future… Instead of making a big scene over what’s taken place… Why can’t we just come to a place where we realize there are people out there that are in fear… That need love… That need their story to be heard and shared… So that we, with the help of God, can stand together, bridge the gap and actually come through stronger than ever before…
