A moment to live!
I was in a hurry one afternoon and had a lot to do. While rushing to get things out of the mouse and into the car, I locked myself out of my house with the keys locked inside. The keys to the car and the house where INSIDE the house. You can imagine; my life flashed before my eyes of what I was going to do. But I had my phone. Thank you, Lord! So I was able to call someone and get some help. But, because I had so much to do, I grew very upset about my life, because there was no help for me in that moment. There was nothing I could do. My hands were tied. I had no control. I continue to get to this place, over and over again! So I just sat in the car, which was already unlocked, and I sat in the dark in the garage. Now on this particular day, it was about 94 degrees outside. I didn’t care! I was upset. I was mad because I had so much to do and couldn’t get it done in the time I wanted to get it done. And I had no control. Once again no control. Once again no control. Once again I was stuck between a rock and a hard place. Once again I felt like my life had stopped! And so I laid in the car and I began to cry. I reminisced all the bad times, recent bad times. Next thing I knew, I began to pray. And after praying, I meditated. I was in silence. I was hot, but I was in silence, meditating. And low and behold, the voice! (No, not the show!). I heard, “Get up and live.!” And I thought, “I am between a rock and a hard place and I have no control.” All I heard was “Live!” So I got up and I began to do things in the garage, after all we were moving soon. And I got so much done in that 30 minutes, (I knew I had to get to it soon) that I began to go through my life while in that garage. Box after box. In that garage were memories. In that garage and I heard it again, “Live!” Sweating, hot and feeling out of control, I saw nothing but opportunities! I began to sing, speak words of life, declare and decree, etc. That moment ignited a fire in me! I began to live! I began to change how I look at things, change how I do things, change what I say, change where I go, and change what I say yes to. I began to live! And since that time, I have learned that even when I’m out of control, I can make a choice to live! So many times we are in a situation where it seems like we’re out of control. But when we really think about it and when we really look at the situation, all we have to do is make a choice and live! The choice is ours! We can stay stuck, crying, worried, mad, upset, angry, moping, or we can get up, let all those feelings go, and live! I challenge you today to get up and live!
