The other day I heard one of the morning pastors I listen to say that God never created a chair, a house boat, an airplane or electricity. He created iron, steel, wood and rain. He gave us the raw materials to create the chair, the houseboat, the airplane and electricity. He then added that God has given each of us the raw materials to create something. What are we going to do with our raw materials?
When I heard that I was like OMG, OMG another Oprah aha moment!! In other words we are all an idea way from the creation of something. You are not waiting on God, God is waiting on you. He has given each of us something and yet so often we do nothing with it or we do just the least little bit and when it gets to hard we stop, we retreat, we over-think it and if this hesitation continues we lose it. God has not given us a spirit of fear. In my life as many times as I have been afraid I have not allowed it to prevent me from anything. I was talking to a good friend of mine today that I had not spoken to in months. He said that he was proud of the things that I have managed to do in my writing because he has known me for over 12 years and he has seen me do things afraid and do them anyway.
I admire writers who are able to put pen to paper and make his or her words touch the person reading in some way that causes a change in the reader. When I find that I get tired, I tend to babble. It is the way that I attempt to stay connected. Tonight I babble. The past few days my life has been changing. God has allowed people to walk away emotionally and people to walk away physically. The material that God has embedded into me is changing and I think it is gonnna be a good thing one day. Today it is just change. My girlfriend told me that I need to rest my mind because the grace that He has given me is there. I need to let Him take over. I have. I am retiring at 55 secure in the knowledge that I am a child of God and He has never failed me yet.
