What do you see?
Our world is ever changing. Our days are filled with moving parts. The more responsibilities we have the faster time goes. If you are like most of the world you have a lot of responsibilities. We are a busy society. This we all can agree on, yes?
Whether you live in the city or out in the country life is busy. One of my mentors once told me that busy stands for: Burdened Under Satan's Yoke. BUSY. It is one of those lessons that has always stuck with me. BUSY. BUSY. BUSY.
Wow, even just saying it now...makes me feel yucky, overwhelmed, pressured.
No one wants to be under a yoke.
Biblically it means to be under the control of another. Comes from the Hebrew word ole which is derived from the Hebrew word 'alal which means to abuse, defile, mock and a bunch of other painful things.
AND biblically it refers to a pair of animals coupled together. I don't know about you but I NEVER want to be coupled with satan.
As with everything I have learned to ask God what to do about it. God, how do I stop being so BUSY? In most cases we have to go back to the beginning to understand where we are. Retrace your steps to figure out where, what, and how life got so busy. From there you can submit, surrender and let God reorder your footsteps.
He did it for me! I know He will do it for you.
When I was a nurse I was so busy that I had no time to hear the voice of God. I have experienced this to be the MOST beautiful thing EVER. What we see leads to what we hear which leads to what we do which defines who we are.
So for this week's question, ask your COT mates what they see? What do they see in you that you might want to change? Ask them what they see in the world that is beautiful? What do you see that is unstoppable? What do you see that is possible?
If answers come up negatively don't stop talking until they end positively. No matter our situation there is still more good than bad. Because God is good and He is more powerful than ANY and EVERYTHING.
What do you see in yourself? What do you see in others? What do you see in the world? What do you see in our Lord? What do you see...?
Smiles and God bless
