Tomorrow is a pretty big day in my world.
So by the time you are reading this (Tuesday), it will be tomorrow, and the big day will be upon me.
I’ve talked a lot about how the foundations of all I’ve “been knowing” are getting a pretty good shaking… well, that continues today, err, tomorrow, err Tuesday, and I can’t go into a lot of detail yet, but Lord willing, I’ll know more soon and then I can share.
What I can share with you is that I lost another 2.5 pounds and I am at 123 – whoop whoop!
I can also share that sometimes our weight loss journeys (or other types of journeys) that we enter on for “our plan” or “our dream” may have deeper resonating streams of purpose that we cannot even begin to see until we land in the place that God has designed for us.
Clear as mud? Sorry about that. I’ll go into more detail later, I just can’t today, err tomorrow, errr, you know what I mean.
So here is the dealio.
I could really use your prayers today (Tuesday) because it is a really big day. And the biggest thing that I’m beginning to see is that it is not really about me – like really NOT.About.Me- but dang sometimes it feels like me because I’m the one going through it, you know?
But it’s not about me. Not even close. And it’s not about how tomorrow is a big day “for me.” It’s about signing up for a journey where I have relinquished control to a better driver than me, and submitted to a Will that is far wiser than my own, no matter what happens. It is about letting God open my eyes to what I have not yet fully seen because I have chosen to live with blinders rather than binoculars.
“This is the kind of fast day I’m after:
to break the chains of injustice,
get rid of exploitation in the workplace,
free the oppressed,
What I’m interested in seeing you do is:
sharing your food with the hungry,
inviting the homeless poor into your homes,
putting clothes on the shivering ill-clad,
being available to your own families.
Do this and the lights will turn on,
and your lives will turn around at once.
Your righteousness will pave your way.
The God of glory will secure your passage.
Then when you pray, God will answer.
You’ll call out for help and I’ll say, ‘Here I am.’
