The “P” Word ugh

I know what you are thinking. I can’t believe he is gonna write a blog about that. You’re right, I never thought I would either but today God spoke about my state in life more clearly than He ever has, or at least I heard it this time so I had to write about it.

 

I’ve been in 1 Samuel and some of you are thinking goodness this boy is a slow reader which is partially true. I’m more of a slow listener. I want to hear something not just read something. Plus I’m young so you can always blame it on that too. Anyway, David has defeated Goliath and now the citizens know of him and his accomplishments. He continues to be victorious in battle Saul is beginning to get infuriated. There was a verse that stuck out to me that said: 

Now Saul feared David. It was clear that God was with David and had left Saul. So, Saul got David out of his sight by making him an officer in the army. David was in combat frequently. Everything David did turned out well. Yes, God was with him. As Saul saw David becoming more successful, he himself grew more fearful. He could see the handwriting on the wall. But everyone else in Israel and Judah loved David. They loved watching him in action.

 

I have heard the p-word from so many people in my life. I dare even say how many. I have often been upset but now I am beginning to understand why. I am not cocky or prideful when it comes to this subject, but I continually ask myself why do these people say that? What do they see? What are my abilities that give me that p-word?

But this time I heard it differently. What if this time God is saying… “J.C. its time to transition. Your opportunity is now. You’ve heard it from Me, you’ve heard it from people I’ve put into your life on a consistent basis, its time to make a move.” This is where I am at. I am more humbled and challenged by the word that I received today than I have ever been before. Thank you Jesus for speaking to your people and for always growing and changing us more and more into your image. I love you so much.
