Coming Out

This has been a time of doing, of moving, of seeing, of being seen.  So what does it mean?  It has been hectic as I come out of a time of being stagnant. Well not really. You see, to an undisciplined eye it would appear that nothing is going on; yet to one who has experienced spiritual disciplines, to one who has been in that desert place - that trained eye knows that God is working.

It really should not be that big a surprise.  You see, all of God's creation goes through a moment of stagnation, of regeneration, and then life returns.  So what does that do for you?  Well I reminds me of a sermon I heard preached in Nassau long ago by Rev. Jeffrey Johnson.  In order to understand how God blesses you must know how Jesus presented that last supper.  Jesus took the bread, blessed it, broke it, and then used it.  And He takes us, blesses us, breaks us, so He can use us for His glory. 

Did you see it?  It would be helpful to understand what stage you are in. We He takes us, that is indeed special. He then blesses us-  but don't get too excited about the blessing phase because the breaking is coming. But it is all for the using us. 

Enjoy your place, contemplate segment. Find out what is there for you.
