walk with me as i walk with Him
so i was listening to KLove today on the radio and one of the guys on the radio talked about being a lifeguard.
at first i was like … uh … what?
but then he got into the story:
“when you’re a lifeguard, the scariest thing to see is a big, strong guy who can’t swim. if he starts drowning, you can do nothing to save him. you can try to pull him out, but he’ll just drag you down. instead, you have to wait until he is near drowned, at his weakest to save him.”
how often do we struggle against God?
even especially when we don’t know what we’re doing, we would prefer to fight than accept the rightness of His will.
God can only save us when we realize how weak we are. when we stop flailing and denying the help of our Savior, then will the Holy Spirit be able to come down upon us.
someone once told me that the exhaustion and struggle of our daily lives come from fighting against God’s will. only when we concede to the flowing river that is He can we find rest!
“But true worship is not concerned about what others think of us (2 Sam. 6:21-22). To worship Jesus, Mary was willing to be thought of as immodest, perhaps even immoral.
In church, we should be able to reveal our weaknesses to find strength rather than conceal our faults to appear strong.”
i really really need to remember this!!!
