Isaiah 30:18~ But the Lord still waits for you to come to Him so He can show you His love and compassion. For the Lord is a faithful God. Blessed are those who wait for Him to help.
This picture is one I took while on a Retreat to Lake Shasta with our College Group from Church. This was a "wait on the Lord" moment. One in which HE spoke deep into my heart in an area that I didn't even realize it was needing to be touched. Taking that "moment" was life changing for me. You see, I felt a stirring in myself, and I wanted to "do" things instead of being quiet, alone with JUST God. SO glad I took that "moment."
Have you found yourself staying pretty busy, but not much is changing inside of you or in your circumstance? I know for me, when things are painful, one of my past behaviors would be to get VERY busy. Involved in projects, cleaning, Church stuff, helping people...
What IF you took some time throughout the day to praise God for His goodness EVEN the things that seem out of control? What if you slowed down and enjoyed whatever moment you were in? For example: When I found myself in a circumstance that I could not change, I became busy and wasn't connecting to God or those around me. Once I stopped to thank God EVEN for the circumstance that was difficult, I began to see the circumstance differently and my relationship with God grew more intimate. My relationship with those around me grew also. As I did this, my heart inside began to change. A gratefulness, a calming, a peace happened! He wants all of me. He wants to carry me through grief and through life transitions, through financial strain. He does it so lovingly. There is a promise at the end of this verse: “I will be blessed if I wait for Him to help.”
Challenge: What choice in coming to God, can you make today that is different than the choices you have been making? Feel free to share what happened with this new choice on the Hidden Potential Coaching Facebook page.
