NEVER SAY NEVER

You’re born into an ordinary life to people of little means.  You have barely gotten to know your mother’s face when she has been torn from you.  Your tiny body is given up by her in order to save you from death.

Your life changes drastically as you are adopted into a wealthy family.  You grow up in luxury – learn things you never would have been afforded before – grow into a physically strong individual – have power you never dreamed of.

As you mature into a young adult you see the injustices that surround you.  They tug at your heart.   You feel helpless and yet being exposed to so much wrongdoing sets you on fire.  You witness a young man being unjustly bludgeoned by another and intercede.  In the process, you take the aggressor’s life.

What you do next makes you appear a coward to those you leave behind.  You run away.  You hide for many years without apprehension.  You change your identity – try to fit in – find a new life.  You try to forget your past, but it soon catches up with you.  You are no longer a vibrant, young adult.  Time has weathered you.

You’re called upon to go back and rescue your native people from a tyrannical government.  You ask yourself – Why me?  If I go back,  they’ll discover who I am and throw me in jail.  I can’t do this! Send someone else.

The man in this scenario is Moses, but it could be any one of us.  The One asking him was God Himself.  God assured Moses that He would be with Him – He would even provide the right words for him to get the job done.

How often do we think we have things figured out?  We’re content with things as they are.  We make excuses – we procrastinate – we say no.

God doesn’t take no for an answer.  When He calls on us to do His work, He also promises to be with us in every way – giving us the right words, leading us and protecting us.

Lord, when I feel satisfied with my life, you invite me to take a closer look.  Examine my heart and use me in whatever way you have left for me to do.  You are my God and I can do anything with you.  Amen!

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
