I thought I knew who I was. And I’m pretty sure I have things figured out. But then, I took a wrong turn and realized I needed Him to figure out who I am.
I think letting Jesus take full control of our lives is the easiest thing we could do, right? I mean, all we have to do is believe that He is in total control. He knows what he’s doing and definitely knows what’s best for us right now, tomorrow, and for the rest of our lives. All we have to do is do our part and let Him guide us through the rest. What else could go wrong?
Unfortunately, as easy as it sounds, we make it complicated. We think we are the master of our own lives. We think we have everything all figured out. So, we do it our way. We set Jesus aside and most times only remember Him when we needed him the most. And whether everyone admits it or not, this is the truth.
A few days ago, I had a dream. It was one weird dream if I may say so. I am going to spare you the complete details. In that dream, I was given the message that Jesus was buying me time as well as the other people in that dream. Buying us time…..?
Jesus is buying us time so we can turn around. Correct what we are doing wrong. To do what is right. To go back to him. To bring him back into our lives. To let him take full control. I don’t know if I sound believable, but I promised him I’d write about it.
If you are reading this right now and I told you that Jesus wants you to know that he is buying you time, would you believe me? What would you do?
I am not perfect. And a lot of times, I don’t think I am worthy of His love. But in the end, when I have no one to turn to, even when I set Him aside, He finds ways to let me know of his love regardless of what I’ve done or what I have failed to do.
So if you feel like you have failed Him, one….two…three or several times even?
He is buying us time, as patiently and lovingly and forgiving like his Father has.
We got time. Right now.
Let him take the wheel.
I’m pretty sure it’s going to be a beautiful ride.
I took a few joy rides, some bumps and quite a few wrong turns. But Jesus took the wheel and bought me some time. Now I know, I may fail Him many times….but His love of me manifested itself even when I failed to yield for His mercy many times.
