sometimes, there is not much to write about in a writer’s life, not even about the things unseen happening in the spirit realm…
Sometimes, the things happening in a life are so personal and intimate that not even a somewhat/almost anonymity as an internet blogger helps to become able to reveal them.
Sometimes, there is a secret, hidden, quiet and personal time with GOD in a person’s life and I believe we all have these or even must have these.
I like to compare it to giving birth.
There is one side of the pregnancy which is obvious and everyone can see that something is happening ,growing… and yet, the changes in the mother, in her personality, in her spirit, the preparations for becoming a mother… some of it is visible for everyone and yet, there are things happening in her which are not even visible to the father of the child, they are only between her and GOD and I assume the father of the child, too, will have these aspects of secret and hidden preparation and transformation initiated and steered only by GOD and only known to HIM fully, not even to the person themselves.
If you have children – and they don’t necessarily need to be human beings or your biological children, they can also be spiritual children, sheep, ministries or big projects you have “given birth” to, something you have created, perhaps out of your desire to serve GOD or your fellow human beings, out of wanting to make this world a better place and out of the desire to become more like THE ONE we all love and adore and want to become like: JESUS.
So if you have physical or “spiritual” children, you will know what I am talking about when you are looking back.
And when you look back to the times before what was growing in you, in your body or in your spirit, before “this” was born – there was a time when it looked as if everything was failing or as if things weren’t moving or as if nothing was happening – on the outside…
Do you remember that this was actually the time when the biggest transformation was happening?
A time of outer standstill…
So it seemed.
A time of waiting on THE LORD.
A time of prayer and reflection and listening and quiet.
A time when all you could do is trust in HIM, because HE had promised you something or asked you to do something and you did it… and now, you were waiting for HIM to respond…
A time when you didn’t really know what was happening.
And yet, you knew, it was right and everything was ok, even though you didn’t know why or how… that HE would make something beautiful out of you…
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
A time when all you could do was keep climbing this mountain… with your hands wide open…
Holding onto nothing…
Trusting that HE would make something beautiful out of you!
I hope and pray that this will inspire, heal and bless you. And that THE LORD will bless you abundantly in all areas of your life, that HE will keep you and shine HIS face upon you and bring you peace. In JESUS’ name I pray. AMEN.
