Refocusing (Day six)
You can spend many years traveling down a path that seemed correct, then like Paul you will have an encounter with the Lord that will change the course of your life.
I used to think that the “things” I perceived were common, that others were undergoing the same experiences.
Then I would share information with people and they would look at me sideways, but I didn’t really know why they reacted to me that way. They would even say, “You said this and that and you were right.”
I can also remember being a child and saying this would happen and that would happen and found that I was accurate.
I mean, I have other examples. But my point is this, I thought this was normal. I thought others could look at someone and see “right through” that individual.
Well, now I know what God has called me to do. Now I know why I had to go through so much rejection. Now I know why I desire God more than anything and anyone. Now I know, and I submit myself to the call on my life. I am used to living an “isolated” life, not participating in what others are doing. I am familiar with betrayal, I am used to the lack, I am used to heartache, and I am used to people going out of their way to attack me.
However, I am also familiar with the merciful Holy Spirit. Now, instead of cursing people for hurting me, I choose, out of obedience, to honor the Father. He is the Potter and I am just the clay.
So I accept everything that is to come. I praise You Jehovah for opening my eyes. I submit myself to You. Hallelujah!
