At The Bottom?
So this last week I have to be honest I was struggling with some of the things in my life. I was not happy with where certain things in my life were going. I was not happy with how I was feeling physically. I was not happy with the sound that the bird was making outside the house. I was not happy with . . . well you put it in there I was just not happy. I don’t know about you but for me it was one of those poor me days. I just want you to know that I hate you if you don’t know what I am talking about. (Just kidding, not really.)
So I just started looking at twitter. If you don’t know what that is . . . then get out of your cave. Maybe that is why you don’t have poor me days either, your hiding away in a cave. (Just kidding, not really.) While I was reading about all the great things that was happening in this church, or all of the cool things that were happening in this persons life, and about how this person got a new job. I found one tweet from Catalyst that had a link to a video and there I watched a video that really spoke to me. Check this one out!
There I heard Donald Miller ask the question, ‘If God came to you and said it is going to work out great. Do you think that you are going to have to go through a lot of hard times?”
As I listened to the rest of the video I realized that I was obviously not Joseph but I felt like everything was hard at the specific time. That in my heart and my head I was wondering really if all that we were doing was worth it? For me I knew the story of Joseph and how his family had sold him off, that he was a slave that was accused of misconduct, and who spent many years in jail forgotten. Until ONE DAY! ONE DAY he was brought in before the King and then ONE DAY he was put in charge of everything. (If you don’t know his story read here in the bible: Genesis chapter 37 – chapter 46.)
What I want to know is are you so tired of fighting, or are you so tired of being alone, or are you so tired of not having enough money, or are you just so tired that you feel that you are at your bottom? You see there is going to be that ONE DAY. But what if your ONE DAY is tomorrow and you quit today? But what if your ONE DAY is next week and you give up on Sunday? But what if your ONE DAY is next year and you quit on New Years Eve?
I want you to know that God is going to do what God is going to do, because He is God. I also want you to know that right now maybe as you look from the bottom of what ever it is in your life. I want you to know that God is able to do something great.
What is that great thing with you? I don’t know God does ask him.
If you want to know more about what means to have a relationship with God then please feel free to contact me. Especially if you feel that you are at the BOTTOM.
