The “bus stop”.


I don’t believe YAH wants us to ever settle in one place. We are on a journey and the destination

is heaven. But something does happen in this life that makes us lose our focus. It may be disappointment,

pain, really good times and the list goes on….

There are a variety of reasons we lose our focus and stop moving.

YAh showed me something the other day. A bus stop came to mind and he showed me how I had gotten

comfortable there because as you know,

you can never really set up camp at a bus stop. A bus stop is not really a destination in itself.

A bus stop accommodates people who are going somewhere and people who are coming from

somewhere but not an actual destination and that’s the place I got comfortable at. I can’t explain it

but I just thought that was the destination but I was so wrong. The settling was so subtle……if it wasn’t

for the Lord I would never have snapped out of it.

 

I got comfortable. I confused the place I am at as the destination when all it is, is a

bus stop. You cannot have a life at a but stop. It was never intended for that.

A bus stop helps you get to where you are really going and on this journey we are on there will be many

“bus stops”. But don’t mistake them for destinations because they are not.

So the goal is to always keep moving in YAH.

There is so much more journeying to be done. Don’t lose focus of where you are going.

Don’t get so comfortable at the bus stop that you think it’s the destination.

Something like that happened in the word. Let’s take a look at it,

 

“That evening at sundown they brought to him all who were sick or oppressed by demons. And the whole

city was gathered together at the door.” 

 

“And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, He departed and went out to a desolate place, 

and there He prayed. 

And Simon and those who were with Him searched for Him and they found Him and said to Him, “everyone

is looking for you.” 

And He said to them, “Let us go on to the next towns, that I may preach there also, for that is why I came out.” 

Mark 1:32-39

 

The disciples got it wrong. They thought they had arrived at their destination. Yeshua could have set up camp

there but He didn’t. He knew what He was called to do and because He knew, He also knew He hadn’t arrived

at His destination.

We can learn something from that story. We need to keep moving in what YAH has called us to do. You don’t

have to see the whole picture to move, you only need to move when He says move.

I don’t want to set up camp at the bus stop. The next bus is rolling in to take me to my destination but

there are many “bus stops” along the way. I need to constantly be aware of where I am and understand

the Lord is directing and guiding me.

 

What about you? Have you gotten comfortable at the “bus stop”?

Do you have an idea of Yeshua’s plan for your life?

 

 

Bless you friends

The problem with this moment…..


Happy 2014 to everyone!!! I hope I find you well. This year has so much potential. I really believe it is going to be a great year. As 2014 has come I realize there are things that need to be accomplished in my life. There have been things I have been trusting God for, for years and they have not come to pass. But my faith is in Him. A lot happened last year and I know there is so much more. Here is where it gets tricky though, I can see all these amazing things God has for me but my current reality betrays me. The challenge is to not get sucked into the present reality, what I see, taste and touch. This present reality with it’s trials and challenges and failures makes it hard to see ahead. There is such a temptation to think, this is it, God has done all He can, this is all He has destined for me!!
But that’s not the truth right? My present reality is not the ALL of God’s plan. It’s just a part of it. In fact, this is part of the journey and not the destination! It’s only by faith that I can go beyond what I see to reach what God has for me. It may seem like nothing is happening but it really is happening!!! God is behind the scenes making things happen. I will not allow my present circumstance to dictate who I am. God is the One who dictates who I am. I will not allow my present circumstance make me believe there is no hope because God says, He knows the plans He has for me, to prosper me and bring me to an expected end!! (Jeremiah 29:11) I will not allow my present circumstance to dictate what I can and can’t do.

Abraham was told he would be the father of many nations when he had no child! It must of being difficult but He made a decision to trust God and it was counted to him as righteousness.
His wife was barren, they were well advanced in years. His circumstances were saying the total opposite of what God had promised but he decided to trust in God.
His story gives me hope. There is hope. God has great things in store despite what people say, and despite what my circumstances are. God is in control……!!!!

That is what has been on my heart. My hope and prayer for you in 2014 is that you will always keep God first. Trust in Him with all of your heart. He can be trusted!! Looking forward to a great year…..   🙂
