"But, if anyone loves God, he is known by Him." 1 Corinthians 8:3
In the midst of a very tryin' weekend that had my nerves on edge with anxiety, I turned on my cell's blue tooth to listen to Pandora while I rode as a passenger in my daughter's car. The station I chose was Contemporary Christian, hopin' I'd hear somethin' at some point that'd be upliftin' to my restless spirit. Immediately, a song came on that I'd not heard before. It's by one of my favourite artist duos, for KING & COUNTRY. I'll place the link below in my endin' text, as usual. The title of this song is "God Only Knows". It's relevance to me at the time was uncanny. As I rode in the back, I literally felt that's been my place in life.
After all the bickerin' I'd been caught up in, I thought that my point and my feelings or thoughts hadn't been, nor ever are, heard..like, I'm just plain unseen. Maybe you can relate. It's like, no matter what's said or done by you for the benefit of others, somehow you've been left feelin' that your opinions or advice doesn't matter. Not only that, but you've also been put in a predicament that seems to slam your heart to the ground only to be trampled all over by a herd of elephants.
Now, never would you wish that any or the worst of anything you go through would strike anyone else, but in a way you do wish for an understandin' of someone to have empathy for that which is afflictin' you in such instances.
I felt exactly like this. It's as if no-one has a clue what their actions cause for someone else, and I just want some comprehension and acknowledgment of the repercussions..but, nope, it ain't comin'.
Moments before I thought to play my music, I shut my eyes and took a deep, long breath as I tried to remain centered, and God reminded me that it's okay if no-one gets me, for He knows me, and that's His intention with us. It's ironic that after that communion I shared with him mindfully such a song would come on.
When I was beyond done with dealing with such negativity, He let His presence be known and calmed my senses. He knew the message I need to receive, the feelings I needed to dissolve, the troubled thoughts He needed to quell. He met me. He knew ME.
I can't help but to find Joy in that fact. Those moments where I feel that 'cause of it all rainin' down on me with things I don't wanna bear any longer, He turns such thoughts into an element of release instead. Even with the tiniest hope for Him that I have left, He's there to turn my outlook all 'round.
He can be so for you, too. I dunno where you are with your life, what your feelin', what's tryin' to drag ya down, but your purpose in this world isn't complete, or He'd have allowed you to come to an end. If He hasn't, your mission, though you not know such a mystery, isn't done. The bridge that you keep comin' to? There's a reason you've been unable to jump. No matter how big or small the situational circumstances you face, He knows your path, why it's the way it is, and has a plan.
Please, let God know YOU. Click here if you'd like to listen to the song I'm sharin' with you.
