I’ll be there in 5 minutes
One word – “HERE“
succinctly captures one of the main points I learned this weekend at the Amazing conference & at church.
“STOP CHASING. EMBRACE YOUR PLACE”
That’s one of the themes I heard over and over. Stay faithful to where God has planted me. If I run ahead of Him, I run the risk of injuring His body. I shouldn’t “confuse my due date with His due season.” (Christine Caine)
I need to be HERE – NOW (not later, not in 5 minutes)
I need to be HERE – NOT THERE in what I think are greener pastures
I need to be HERE – WHERE GOD PLANTED ME, doing what He wants me to do with the people He’s given me (like my boys)
I need to see HERE as God’s great place, even if somewhere else looks more enticing. Because it’s in the faithfulness God can build what He needs to build in me.
HERE is a word of contentment. And God says that Godliness with contentment is great gain.
So HERE I am. Choosing to tweak my focus a bit. Choosing the joy of being content with God’s plan, because it’s so much better than mine!
Where are you today?
