Recognize

 

I don't know a lot. I'm an expert at nothing. I recognize God's creation, his Triune plan, and His purpose for my life. This doesn't mean I know what my days will look like; it's more like "Hang in There, Baby" I've got this. You, my child, are eternally secure. Lean on me when you're not strong, and I'll be your friend; I'll help you carry on! I strive to stay close to my Waymaker-Peace Giver.

I recognize that redeeming today requires a pace of life that we are unfamiliar with– it is not a faster one but a slower one. I strive to live a slower one! Time has one direction, and it is forward. When we remove the busy, a whole new set of opportunities are given to us. We must be selective about what we schedule as we move towards each new day. 

No matter what we struggle with, it gets really small when we compare it to eternity. Trusting God through the process of prayer is beneficial to our core. In prayer comes claimed calm. Struggles are real, but they aren't in control of God's children.

Allowing the Holy Spirit to actually be set free within us, as followers of Christ, is the most unutilized gift that God has blessed us with. Recognizing-freeing our Holy guide brings the Triune into perspective...slow down, allow it to move. 

I recognize church for what it is, a gathering place for broken sinners. The church is where we come to take off self and put on praise and worship to the Holy One. Let's be intentional in planning to be in the House of the Lord. We must humble ourselves.

I recognize that I choose to move at the pace the Holy Spirit calls me into. I recognize deep connectivity to God when I am in the Word and in prayer. I recognize that I must allow time for God to nurture me. I recognize He alone is worthy of my praise.

Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths. Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long. Psalm 24:4-5
