Has anyone seen my blinders?

Take Me Aside

Take me aside Lord
Show me the things that linger undiscovered
Things so warped and defiled
That they stop Your living life in me
Take my hand and guide me to
Those areas never missed by You
And when my eyes fill with tears
And my soul is resigned to live within
Draw me near to Your dear side
Hold me close in Your Spirits tide
And in Your will let me abide

If I just knew that this
part of life was a test
.......I KNOW I'd pass

And if I could see the angels standing round
ready to step in and hold me steady
.......I feel sure I'd pass the test

In those times of greatest anger
Smashed by life
And the feelings of danger
If I just knew that this was a test....

Would I, dear God......................................................................pass the test?

It seems as if I walk daily with blinders on........
Stumbling, reaching, sliding in this thing called life.

At times I stop and take the blinders off
Turning them all around to examine them with earthly eyes
These strange things that do not allow my human eyes to see
No, a tool no good to human eyes
They blind my eyes and cause my earthly flesh so much frustration
And yet..... when used with heavenly eyes
They guide my feet safely, smoothly, steadily

And so I put my faith back on
I resume the test
Without these blinders
I know it is impossible to
Please You God.

Stepping back into the test
Finding peace in the One
Who will one day guide my stumbling feet
Home to rest.

There is really so much going on that I am not sure what to blog these days.
If I talked about what God was teaching me.....I think I would be talking about the same thing in a hundred different ways. He is speaking of His love for the body. A body that does not really understand......or has never felt the full love of the Father. That love that is unconditional. She has never felt how obsessed God is with her. How she is individually loved.

I feel the Lord calling, drawing me near. Asking me to step out.
My flesh cries out for security......and yet He says He is all the security I will ever need. He says let's do this thing NOW....and I cry out...What is this thing?
What do you want me to do?
So, here I am.
Wanting to please my God........ And I know that without faith it is impossible to please God. I pray that He continues to break these bonds of humanity that bind my heart and flesh.

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen Hebrews 11:1

I am going to be sending my computer off to have a little work done before my warranty is over. So I will be a little sporadic in posting and reading. Please be patient with day soon I pray things will settle and I can get back on a schedule. Yes, to me routine=security.
Yes, feeling a tad insecure.
Has someone seem my schedule?
Love you guys~
Keep knocking.......He will open the door.
Keep seeking......He will be found
Purely pursue Him.
The pure in heart will see God.
Matt 5:8
Standing on the rock......which will NEVER be shaken!

Oh, dear sister. You have no idea how God used your words today to echo my heart. I put some words down on paper too as I struggled with my spirit, but yours said them so beautifully. Thank you. I agree with Denise. A beautiful post. A beautiful heart behind it! Love always in Christ. Leslie

I love what you said about putting faith back on and stepping back into the test....loved that thought and could almost visualize it. You remember when Joshua and the Isrealites crossed the Jordan river...the river was between to valleys so there was no wading point it was just a drop off. God said,"When you reach the edge of the waters, go and stand in the river.". We gotta step in and be strong and courageous!
Love you!

Hey! I'm not that far from WS so getting with you is doable. If I were to blog on what the Lord has been revealing to me I guess I would have to say I would be blogging about my listening skills or lack thereof.

Good to hear from you- thanks for the encouragement! I will pray that all settles for you as well. Routine is comforting.

melanie said...

Oh I can't wait to hear more about what God is doing! I hope things settle in for you soon! How close to Asheville are you? I will be going heading up to see my mom in a few weeks in her new house and I just thought I would see where abouts you are. Not that you need one more thing on your list!! =)
