We sang the song “King of the World” in church today. It really hit me.
As life has been getting better, I’m going to be honest and admit that I sometimes forget God.
I mean that not in a “I forget You exist” way, but a “I’ll put You in a box” way.
As I get better, I find that I tend to forget all God has done and proceed to put Him in a box of what I want to see happen. I proceed to tell God what I want him to do.
“I want to go to that place, date that person, or do that life-changing thing.” I proceed to shrink Him down and put Him into a small box.
When I dare to do that, God proceeds to find ways to break out of that box I put Him in. He says, “You might want to go to that place, BUT I, the One who set it all in motion, have you right here, right now. MCS is your mission field right now”.
As I heal, I need to remember, Jesus speaks and the storms quiet.
Jesus breathes life out of dust.
Jesus is the King of the World.
I need to remember to hold my plans, my aspirations, and my dreams losely. I’m not who I was a couple months ago, and I won’t be who I am now in a couple months. I am always changing at what seems like a breakneck pace and a turtle pace at the same time.
I’m learning to be patient with who I am and where I am right now. It’s not primarily about the destination, but it’s about the journey.
It’s about falling more in love with the King of the World.
It’s about the quiet mornings when He speaks through the sunrises.
It’s about the way He provides rest on the busy days.
It’s about dear friends who push you to seek refuge in Him.
It’s about the people who speak life into you on the days when your soul is empty.
It’s about sharing your story of the wilderness, and the sweetness of our Father.
You will eventually get where you are going, but the destination might not look like what you planned it looking like.
God is the King of the World, and He is present in the wilderness as you journey forward.
