Sometimes, I’m in my head so much that I can’t hear God. Does that ever happen to you? Oh my bad, I forgot you’re perfect…I digress. Well, those of you who are just like me, I’m pretty sure you can relate to what I’m about to say.
You ever ask God a question and then try to answer with what you think He might say?? And then get mad when He says the opposite of what you really wanted to hear. Yep, that’s me too. Don’t feel bad, sis, you’re not alone.
What I’ve learned over the years (yeah, I know I’m only 27) was that staying in my head only prevents me from truly hearing from God. If I surround myself with only thoughts of my own, I do myself a disservice. How can I expect God to answer my questions, when I am too busy trying to predict what He will say?? Make that make sense 😑
When I was in high school, I used to be so confused at church. You see we went faithfully and I knew church to be a tradition: we attended church 8 days a week, if you know what I mean 🙈 Although, I was there often, I realized as I grew older that I was so confused about who Jesus was. I mean I know they told me that “He died on the cross for my sins and on the third day He rose” but I didn’t know what that truly meant. It wasn’t until two years ago, when I began my quest to find out who this Jesus guy was. My findings were mind blowing.
To say the least, Jesus was a G! I’m saying, like he was so relatable. He’s like LEGIT my homeboy. Jesus was all in the bible sassing people. Reading about him made me closer to him. Becoming closer to Him, made me dependent on Him. All those years of playing church was just what they was: playing church. It was time for me to do more and I desired more, not just for me but for my family. In order for me to get to God, it had to be through his son, Jesus.
I say all that to say sometimes you just gotta get out of your head, die to your flesh, posture yourself to allow God to use you.
