I’m Drowning But Don’t Save Me

It has been raining this week for what seems like forever. I’m sure it was only two days, but here’s what my pond and pier look like. cockWhere are the steps? Lol

Looking out my window, this is what I see. Earlier today I was comparing this to God’s goodness. How He just loves to overflow in our lives. Later in the day what began as overflow, turned into drowning. Was it all God?

I don’t believe God wants to ‘drown’ us in goodness. We wouldn’t be worth much to Him in that capacity. He wants us to be usable so, gasping for air is not a pretty sight. Absorbing the occurrences throughout the day, I had to discern what was good and what was not so good. Was the not so good fixable? Yes. Sometimes we have to face the challenges and responsibilities of life to get to the goodness.

If I do my part and do the very best I can, God meets me there. If life hits too hard and fast, I’m learning to wait. God has taken so many problems out of my life just by waiting on Him and His timing. By continuing to give it to God, to lay it at His feet, He will take either take it, because it was a test of my faith, or use it to grow me up.

The picture of the flooded pond is a great example of my faith. Even though I cannot see the steps leading to the pier, I know they’re there. They are right below the surface, and by waiting for the water to recede, they will be revealed.
