MMS – Sea

MMSFor the month of October, I am joining many bloggers in a challenge to write every single day for 31 days. I learned about this challenge through another challenge I participate in most weeks. The “Five Minute Friday” challenge is going to expand to last the whole month! Each entry, will be five minutes unedited of writing on a particular theme – found on Kate’s blog.Today’s theme is “sea.”

Moses parted the Red Sea (see Ex. 14). An impossible task, made possible. It wasn’t about Moses, but the God he served. We all will find ourselves in difficult – yet – seemingly – impossible situations, yet God longs to prevail over them.

My “Red Sea”

Lately, I have felt discouraged – just ready to be done. I am tired of struggling. Needless to say, I have my reasons. Perhaps, even consider them justified. Yet, somehow they are needing to be crowded out with something else. Something real/more-important-than-these-feelings. Something bigger-than-life. Have you ever wrestled with sea of thoughts? Perhaps not discouragement, but overwhelmed? Or, surrounded by a sea of thoughts on how to accomplish a task.

God is bigger than the Red Sea.
God is bigger than the horrors of Dysautonomia without the proper medication.
God is bigger than social anxiety or anxiety and panic attacks – point blank.

God is Bigger

My sea of discombobulated thoughts? He is bigger than those too. It’s not just that He is all-powerful. It is also the truth that God cares for us (see Ps. 8:4) far more than we could ever imagine or ask (see Eph. 3:20). I am reminded that He does have plans for our lives. But, sometimes, those plans mean walking down a path that seems unlit – compared to our brighter-than-the-sun kind-of-days.

I just need God to guide me through my sea of thoughts. I need Him to continue to prove just how B I G He is – despite my despairing moments, roller-coaster emotions, and health concern. I need to begin to look for the various ways that God continues to show up my life on a daily – hourly – minutely – and secondly basis.
