Fighting to Stay In Position

Fighting to Stay In Position

“You are handling this with such grace.” 
“I am so proud of you- you are so strong.”

I am not. He is.

Every single sermon I have heard since my separation has told me one thing. DO NOT GIVE UP. Don’t give up before the victory. Keep fighting. During this week's message, I heard, “You are not getting in position to fight, you are fighting to stay in position.” 

It is easy to fight, to defend yourself. It is easy to say you are fighting for something. But are you? Should you? Maybe this isn’t our fight. Maybe we are not the ones who need to be fighting. Maybe we need to relinquish control, let Him handle our battles. I have given up control of my situation and can I just tell you- it’s been the most powerful and relieving thing I could have done. 

People give me the tilted head, "I'm sorry" look when I explain my situation. Don't be. God's got this. God's got my back, and my husband's, and my kid's, and that stranger's over there and the lady's I always see at Publix...and yours. Definitely, yours. He's got it.

I don’t need to fight for restoration. He will. And He will do a much better job at it than I ever could.

But I do fight every day.
I fight doubt.
I fight hope.
I fight faithfulness that God WILL restore what is broken.
I fight every single to stay in a position of surrender and faith. 

So, when I feel like I am not doing enough, questioning if I am really fighting - I am reminded that I am. Right now, my fight is this- DO NOT GIVE UP before you taste the victory.

God has put me on this path that looks like punishment. It is something that has happened to me. But what if it is something happening for me? What could He be working on? Our God is so huge that He does the unthinkable. So, I don’t know. But I trust Him.

Listen to this, close your eyes and lay it at His feet right now.
