Do you every feel like you are stuck in a moment? Do you look around and think, “how did I get here? This is not what I saw coming?”
I have been feeling like that a little the last couple of days. I feel stuck. I have seen amazing things. I have seen God transform my stoic and hard heart into one of flesh and compassion. But today, I feel stuck. Not sure if I can still trust. Not sure God knows best.
I have even wondered if the April Fools Challenge is my fleshiness breaking into God’s work and me trying to control. It might be. I sometimes feel like I need to “get ahead of the curve” on what God wants to accomplish. That is my usual moment of stuckness.
Philippians 3: 12 says, “not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own.”
This is a challenge and great assurance. My moment will pass because I will keep pressing own. Not because I can do it or I know best. I can press own and be moved from my moment because Christ has made me his own. I am His. He takes me at whatever moment and holds me. He takes me in my stuckness, in my turning my back or running ahead and He holds me.
We are His!
PS. The lyrics of the song really don’t have anything much to do with the post except for the title. I just like the U2 song and included it.
