New Things are Happening!

28 Aug

Have you ever had something to happen to you that you never wanted to happen but it turned out that it was the best thing that could have ever happened in that particular situation?  I know that was a mouth or a mind full, but as I think back on the things that were the most dramatic for me they turned out to be the most life changing. 

Well, this year in particular has been one of those years!  It seems that one thing after the other was happening and none of them seemed good, as a matter of fact most of them were very

traumatic for my family.  We took  some  very serious blows, but  one thing I can say, is that we are still standing, thanks to the grace and mercy of our GOD.  When life is changing at a pace faster than you feel you can keep up, all I can say is that you better know what you believe and in whom you believe.  When your faith is tested over and over again and  when one event right after another is occurring and you feel like you’re in the middle of a battle that really has nothing to do with, what do you do? 

When answering that question for myself, my thoughts run back to a message that I heard several years ago about a young boy whose Dad loved to ride Harley Davidson motorcycles.  The little boy kept begging his Dad, to please let him ride on the back with him.  The Dad would not let him ride until he really felt like he was old enough to listen to his directions which were very plain and simple but were also very serious.  His Dad finally told his son one day  that he could ride, but only under the following conditions.  “Son,  yes today you can ride, but only if you will get on, hold on tight, and shut up!”  At first that seemed pretty rude to me, especially the “shut up part” what did talking have anything to do with being safe on a motorcycle I questioned.  But I then found out that if you do not keep your mouth closed while riding on a motorcycle that you  have a mouth full of flying insects…GROSS! 

  Well what does this story have anything to do with the events of my year, you may ask?  I guess I felt like this little boy this year!  Once you decide to ride with the Father, he gives you certain directions, the ride is thrilling and fast and sometimes very furious, so you “must get on, hold on tight as if you’re life depended on it because it does , and yes and even SHUT Up!”  There are times to speak and yes times to be quiet!  The Lord says to be still, or quiet and know that He is GOD!  With every change that has taken place in our lives this year, though difficult, we have learned that GOD will turn things around for our good.  We have gotten on for the ride and we’ve gone around some bends in the road that we were not expecting to have to go down, but my Father is driving and all I have to do is hold on tight  and yes even shut up, especially if I am not speaking words of faith but agreeing with  the enemy of my soul  who is trying to get me in fear. 

 Ecclesiastes Chapter 3:1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven!  I guess the reason for my blog tonight is just to encourage those of you who have been going through some very difficult changes!   I would encourage you to know that it is but a season..   That this difficult thing has come to pass, it will not stay! Just hold on tight, and yes be quiet and know that He is GOD! Life is about change, nothing will ever remain the same.  The Lord will not allow us to remain in our comfort zones where we will not grow or learn that he can be trusted, so just know that nothing will touch your life that is not filtered through him first.  If he lets it come to you, then he will use it for you!
