I have been going through lots as of late.  Really hard stuff…the kind where it would be easy to think God wasn’t even there much less about Him actually doing miracles, like healing me, even a little.  He hasn’t and doesn’t seem to be.  So what do we do when we are faced with these kinds of situations?

I have started to pull closer to God.  My self-talk mantra each day is I love you God, I love you Jesus, I love you Holy Spirit, I love you angels.  Don’t get sidetracked on the angels part–I like them and have learned much about commanding them to do God’s work so I love them too.

Anyway.

There is this place inside God it seems when we turn and run into Him when things are impossible.  It doesn’t make the situation any less crazy (Well, sometimes it might) but inside God I am finding a place of ….the only words I can say to describe it is warm fuzzies–where inside is warm and happy and loved.

Today…there is nothing that you can do that will make you LOVED by God any more or any less.  He is Steady.  He is Good.  He is God.  Think of Him as a Treehouse, like when we were kids.  Climbing up into that beloved treehouse was a safe place for me, a hidey place, a place where no one knew where I was or what I was doing but where I could be…and hang out.

This week is about being in that warm fuzzy hidey place and loving on God.  Not doing anything else but hanging out.  As you come and go in your daily dealings…say, God I love you… Jesus I love you….Holy Spirit I love you (if you want to hang with the Angels, you can tell them too!).  Just turn off the religious chatter and all the insane to dos that we all have…even though you still have places to go and things to do…operate from that warm fuzzy hidey safe treehouse place.

    Interesting. One of the most difficult things has been for me is in this place I have been in about healing. I have seen God move in areas of my life without much effort and see Him at work. So I know He is ‘THERE’ with me and for me, yet I have been seeking Him for YEARS for the one thing I most desire but have heard little from Him about that. Like you I also pull closer to Him. Having seen this as a better strategy than throwing up my hands. But it is hard when you hurt and when each day passes and not much changes. But I figure that is why we walk by faith and not by what we see. I know God’s word is Spirit and life, so I read a lot. I say, “God, I know that You love me.” I remind myself of that constantly. Because like you, I get what you are saying. A difficult place to be in. But hope in God. Keep praying. Hold on. Answers will come. He loves us. God bless.
