You were meant not to fit. It was by design he set you apart and to search for a love you couldn’t find. People who fit don’t seek. The seekers are the ones who don’t fit. Seek and you shall find.
The Lord spun you around on that barstool and said, “This is NOT you.” God’s call is setting you apart, not aside. Predetermined steps. He labored in seeking you out. When God seeks, he most certainly finds.
I wonder who you are that the Lord would put so much labor and work in setting your platform. What is God doing in your life? The labor involved into setting apart your steps and orchestrating each one of them.
The Lord has designs on you. He has marked you for a purpose far beyond what you could ever do on your own.
Think on this.
Lord, you must have the wrong one. Have you seen me? Have you seen what I have done and the web of sin I am tangled in? Have you seen my mess? Have you seen the brokenness that has become my place of abiding?
He is not afraid or overwhelmed by your past. He sees you. He knows you. He is intimately pursuing you. You are the very one he wants.
Promiscuous grace. Love laboring until you are found. Leaving the 99 because his love is without measure. The kind of love that doesn’t see through the lens you now see from.
God knew what he was doing from the very beginning. He decided from the outset to shape the lives of those who love him along the same lines as the life of his Son. The Son stands first in the line of humanity he restored. We see the original and intended shape of our lives there in him. After God made the decision of what his children should be like, he followed it up by calling people by name. After he called them by name, he set them on a solid basis with himself. And then, after getting them established, he stayed with them to the end, gloriously completing what he had begun. ( Romans 8:29-30 Message Bible)
Do you see the correlation? God looks for the one that looks as if they are too far gone. He looks for the one culture has rejected and abandoned. He is looking for YOU. I believe he has found you and that you are at a pivotal crossroad. Right now, in this moment. He is pointing at you. He has locked eyes with you. You have his full attention. Now is the time. Today is the day. He is calling you to come and walk on the wild side of grace.
Tonight, I had no intentions on putting in an entry to my blog. I felt a tug on my heart strings. I listen up real quick when I hear his heart speaking. I asked the Lord to take the pen of authenticity and that he would speak. That this would be not of myself in any way, shape or form. Instead, I stepped back and said Lord what would you like to say. I’m yours.
Praying isn’t complicated. Nor is there a right or wrong way. It’s simply sharing in the rawest form to your best friend. It’s an unfiltered dialog and relationship with the Lord.
My prayer is that you would allow the Lord access to your heart. That you would lay down your heart, your past, present and future at his feet. Handing over the keys and deed to your heart. Embracing grace that covers all sin. Not one is good. We all have fallen short. A relationship with God is where it all begins. A journey of hope, freedom, life and the promise of never being alone. He is enough for you.
Keeping the green light on,
Speak for the Unspoken
