Ten days ago I surrendered control and it appears that since that time things have gotten a bit uncontrollable.
Case in point, a couple of months ago the motherboard on my computer crashed. To compensate for that lost I started using my husband’s computer. This past Saturday his power cord stopped working. No computer?! With a blog to write, emails to answer, and social media updates to make this was not the time.
This past Friday, for our first Weekly Wrap-up Call I was on the rode traveling to Virginia Beach for a speaking engagement. For both Cycles 1 and 2 I have been nicely positioned at my dining room table for every call, but this time I was at a rest stop. No dining room table? This was not the time.
But then I started to wonder, what is this all about; this is all so abnormal. Then it came to me, God is preparing me for my NEW normal. He’s teaching me to be flexible and to “go with the flow” because more will be required of me. And believe you me, this training period is necessary! For a girl who likes normalcy and expectedness all this spontaneity can be overwhelming.
But overwhelmed I will not be. So I am learning to be flexible and to change the way I approach each new situation. In other words, I am renewing my mind until it catches up with my new reality. And for at least a while, I may not be able to predict what is to come, and that is okay. Knowing that God is in control is enough for me.
I am in transition and I refuse to get in the way of my elevation; my new heights in Him. Therefore, if throwing normal out the door is part of this process then so I be it. God is building my house therefore I am taking my hands out of it.
Let me ask you. Are you allowing God build your house? In what ways do you need to change in order to give God full reign of your life?
Stay tuned as we continue to explore the theme: Who’s building your house? “Unless the Lord builds the house, he labors in vain who builds it” (Psalm 127:1).
Remember, in your new normal things aren’t going to go the way you expect. God may even do things in an unorthodox fashion. But don’t fret or worry, just move knowing that God’s grace will sustain you through any and every situation. And when you do, what you thought was abnormal will easily become your new normal as you operate in His normal.
With God all things are possible,
