That friends, is what I said! “What?!”
Those pesky things seem to come out of no where. Then we spend the next hundred years focusing on how to get rid of them (or calling The Guinness book of World Records ; which belongs to an Iowa farmer ; no use correcting me~ hers does not count)
There’s wisdom in “going back”. Not literally of course, (although sometimes tis true~that’s another story) but going back to the event just before theHiccup (or pothole) Effect derailed your journey.
Time to Listen.
Revisit the last step of obedience God asked you to do.
AND DO IT.
Since God does not waste anything these seasons are simply tender training. Letting old self die~the one who wants to sometimes still cry” this is so not what I signed up for.” Learning to hone in on HIS voice HIS eyes alone, press through, step up. Trust, Obey.
Going back. Saying YES. Stepping up.
Revisiting exactly where the potholes began. Revisiting how the fear of further disappointment or the fear of fear (even the hint of) tries to instill paralysis. (read this about the same time ….So agree! Also submitting the definitive strategy is…take a tent stake to it’s temple !Fear is a toxic enemy…which is robbing YOU of your destiny.)
(Has God said give things away? do it! To pay your bills on time? do it! To go on a year long mission trip? DO IT! To restore the foundation? Let Him! ) Just step out ~ He WILL be there. Promise.
Revisiting exactly the place of Courage and Overcoming. I’ve only just begun and feel great!
The friends who know,say it’s the wisest choice. Truly, I am ready to be done. Honestly, I am ready to walk away. This is from another life and I dont’ want to play anymore. Still, lots to sort through. Pressing through has of course brought~closure. And it will for YOU too.
All will be worth it… sometimes a gal’s just gotta get messy; taking Victory and Breakthrough into her own hands. (pass the tissue box please)
Moral of this Season? God has a clever strategy~stretching us beyond bounds, so that ever so willingly we say to the “smaller” immediate request~
“Oh that? Sure, that I can do!”
Until next time~xox
~just wondering~ what is your favorite hiccup cure? (mine? in the old days it was holding my breath hoping they’ll go away) 😉
