|| BE STILL MY SOUL || Everyone experiences seasons where they feel anxious, worried, or depressed. Those seasons often come disguised in purpose or identity crises. But there is hope: Jesus Christ was the ransom for our sins and because of His sacrifice, we can have communion with Jehovah and complete our God-designed purpose with the help of the Holy Spirit. When we are going through those seasons, we must remind ourselves that even though things may be out of our reach, God is always in control and we can trust in Him. That is when we must tell our souls to be still and wait on God. *Please excuse the weird lighting .
For those of you who do not know, I am a Christian. When I was 11 years old, I gave my life to Christ and He freed me from depression and erased my sins. After that day, I have experienced a new freedom and know that I am not alone, because He is always with me. You too can experience freedom from the bondage of sin if you accept Him as your Saviour. If you have been born again, I encourage you to share your testimony and most importantly the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. .
Thought I’d wordvom a little of what went through my brain last night on my flight back to LA from a quick weekend in Boston… remember, wordvoms are never planned, often may not make a lot of sense and are unfiltered/unedited… :P
1. How in the world do airplanes stay in the air with all this weight…. Doesn’t matter who explains it to me… IT’S INSANE.
2. Im flying over the entire United States, completely from east to west, 2,600 miles. That’s a lot of miles and a lot of people are below me living their daily lives while I’m up here.
3. Here’s where I had a tiny lightbulb of God’s perspective: I know God hears EVERY prayer. I don’t need “proof” I simply know it. In the pit of my being, I 110% believe it. He hears every. single. prayer. But it wasn’t until I was way up in the sky that I realized how many people are actually below me on land as I fly. Any idea where I’m going with this? If God is above and within the entire universe, then I GET IT. I visually get how he hears every prayer, how he is with every single one of us from so high above the universe. There’s a really cool discussion about God + Time in Learn The Bible In 24 Hours that talks about a parade and how God is above the parade, so he sees where it starts, goes and finishes all at once, but we are on the sidelines watching it in real time. FREAKING SO AWESOME to have visuals like that. Any who, that was one thought.
4. And lastly, how there are thousands upon thousands upon THOUSANDS of you praying all sorts of prayers as I fly over head. Prayers for healing, time to slow down, time to speed up, financial relief, guidance, hope, marriage, love, family feud. Prayers are so interesting, while some are praying for God to speed things up, and others are praying for it to slow down, He has a way of making them both happen. I think we often overlook how powerful prayer is, we say it is, but I don’t think we fully understand it. Flying overhead knowing so many of you are praying all these prayers and they are being lifted up to Jesus, man, I feel like I’m flying through prayers.
That’s all I’ve got. As I fly over thousands of you tonight (rest continued in comments!!)
