An Uncomfortable Place

Sitting in a difficult meeting is just uncomfortable. Especially with a parent who is not pleased.

On this day, I had a not so happy parent, who was known for a few choice words to demonstrate her displeasure. Prior to the meeting I sat in my car and said a prayer:

“Father, help me to see her as you do.”

I knew that this was the only way to not be offended by her words. If I called on the Protector, He could build an invisible bubble-like force field to surround me and any evil words would just bounce off. Thus, I would walk out of the meeting unbothered, unharmed, with a successful meeting under my belt.

Standing On God's Word

I feel anxious.

The kind of anxiety that makes your heart pound 83 million beats per second. It’s identical to a steady and fast drum beat. My mind started to come up with 530 solutions and 850 scenarios.  

Okay, maybe I am being a bit dramatic.

God said be anxious for nothing...so stop beating so fast heart. Be still.

My heart didn’t listen. I still feel anxious. My mind won’t focus.

When You Don't Feel God's Presence

But then I recall all you have done, O Lord; I remember your wonderful deeds of long ago. They are constantly in my thoughts. I cannot stop thinking about your mighty works. {Psalm 77:11-12​}

God, where are you? Have you ever felt that way? Has life been so difficult at times for you or someone you love that you start to question whether God has turned His back on you and your situation?

To You Who Are Ready For Truth

During my quiet time I read through Luke 6:27-35 and the Holy Spirit would not let me forget the very first sentence. "But to you who are willing to listen..." or as the Message Bibles states "to you who are ready for truth..."

Jesus is giving us a hint. He is preparing us for some difficult truth. A truth that requires ears of a person that is willing to listen.  And then He says it...
