As I sit and watch my favorite tree blow in the wind, I notice other trees in the background, also blowing in the wind. Each tree has it's own way and sway of letting the wind pass through, none the same.
Have you ever witnessed this?
Now, accept the fact that God moves through us in the various ways we allow Him, or don't allow Him. Every one of us is different but different does not mean bad. It just meas different. If God moves someone in a way different from the way He moves you, IT IS WHAT IT IS! We get so caught up in wanting others to be what we think they should be, while failing to even know what God's breath is trying to teach, tell, and show us as He blows through our souls.
We are those trees, doing our own and various things. Lack of knowledge, chosen ignorance, and fear of the unknown is what drives one tree to despise, criticize, or ostracize another. Sound familiar? Think about it this way. We still have such behavior among different church denominations. Yet, God is able to accomplish His Will through each and EVERY one! God may even reach someone through a horoscope!! Uh oh! Was that a toe??!! I'm sorry!! That horoscope is not that different from the belly of the whale, in which Jonah found himself all those years ago.
GOD IS GOD!! GOD DOES AS HE PLEASES!! GOD MEETS PEOPLE WHERE THEY ARE!! If it's in the prison, then God will go there to get who He wants to get. If it's in the gay or lesbian home, then He will go there to use who HE Wills to use for HIS purpose! If it's in the club, the pagan church, or the gutters of the world, then God will be there to reach who needs reaching!! To say that God won't do these things is to say GOD AIN'T GOD, and that's BLASPHEMY!! Who are WE to have issue with ANYTHING God does or sees fit to happen??! Who are we to judge? If God blows you left and blows me right, then SO BE IT! The gap He's creates, between you and I, is just the right size for that person, He's been trying to reach, to pass through to Him. There is so much about God that lies beyond human comprehension. The quicker we find ourselves content with this the sooner we will become what He wants us to be toward one another.
HAPPY THURSDAY EVERYBODY!!! I LOVE ALL Y'ALL!!!
