Since I’ve last wrote an update, many things have transpired. But isn’t that how it is for most of us? If you take the time to look back at the last few weeks you really can see where you’ve been. So many of us are plowing through our lives forgetting to stop and look back and take inventory. Especially with all that’s going on in our world, I believe we are all in the huge race to 2021…but do we actually think 2021 will be better just because there’s a new year? I’m not being pessimistic, just realistic. I caught myself yesterday standing looking at Jan 2021 pinned to the kitchen wall thinking, maybe it will all be over…
It’s what our humanistic minds are trained to do. Look for a way out. Find a way of escape. Oh well, there’s only One who really knows what tomorrow holds.
Speaking of a way out, I was given a chance to be a light to a young addicted woman. Hooked on one of the strongest drugs, heroine, I could feel her hope and her hopelessness as she opened up via text to me. I felt small and unequipped in truly helping her. What I mean is, I have experience with drugs and addiction under my belt, but what could I truly say to someone to get them to just open their eyes and stop? What could I give her that’s concrete? Bottom line is the Word of God. I gave the scriptures that helped me. The rest is up to her. It takes alot to get to this point in helping others. So many times we want salvation and freedom for others more than they do for themselves.
I turned life off for myself a couple of days ago. Forced myself to just stop. I had some alarming symptoms of stress happen to me and I knew I needed to just slow down. It was so hard to just sit when I could be doing this or that. In the long run, I feel much better. The words I want to say are coming to me quicker than before.
Do you ever wonder what God thinks of all of our running around, buying gifts, and putting on big meals during this time? Do you ever wonder, like I do, if maybe we should put more of this effort in celebrating Easter than Christmas? Just sayin’. I know there’s alot of significance to His birth, but His birth was for one purpose…His death and resurrection. What if we planned for a month ahead for Easter? What if we gave presents then? What if school was off for 2 weeks and family drove in from other states to enjoy a big fancy meal?
I guess my post should say Amy’s Rambling World😀
Have a Merry Christmas blog world!
