Use My Voice

Speaking up about the issues I can't get out of my head or heart.

Trying To Get Unstuck…

on April 27, 2012

I had a rough afternoon. It was actually something I didn’t see coming. One of those times where an issue from the past threatens to come up and take back over. You know those kind of issues. The ones that hurt in a place really deep that you really wish would just go away. The kind of issues or life events that cause you to get stuck.

I don’t think It’s any chance happening that this issue came up today. I have just started a Bible study with a great group of women that is called Stuck. It is all about the places we get stuck in our relationship with God. Earlier this week I got a lot of clarity about one of these issue in my own life. So of course what happens…boom let’s just try and face it head on. Now I am not going to pretend like I have resolved this issue or that today might not have been a bit of a set back. However, I am aware that this is an area where I have been stuck. So now the choice is mine stay stuck or believe that God wants an intimate relationship with me and as long as I am stuck that will never happen.

What I am learning is that God doesn’t want to take these kind of issues away. He wants to work through them. He wants to be glorified through my weakness. Through the things that I can’t handle on my own. He’s not jtrying to make me stronger but to make me depend on him more. It is so contrary to how I think but yet I find great comfort in a verse  I was reminded of this week. “My gracious favor is all you need. My power woks best in your weakness”. 2 Corinthians 12:9
