While I was working on releasing a blog post on a particular week, my thoughts strayed a bit or better put, I had a recall of how I had struggled to upload a post online the previous week because I changed my location. And possibly my network provider was trying to get a hold on “if this was my new location” or “maybe we need to ascertain this” or “Nah!, she is so not in the place we knew her to be” etc. 😂
Funny right. But this really did cross my mind. Because fast forward to some days later and for the following week’s upload, I was no longer having this network difficulty. And so I didn’t have to carry it over to the next day as I had to, the time the network acted up, which also continued for about 2 – 3 days afterward. So yes, it’s possible that is what happened because I still don’t have an answer to what happened to it that it got better some days later. 😁
Just the way my network provider decided to watch out for itself, and hence went all MIA (missing in action) on me because I changed my location. Many of us have also left our home zone and we are now in a place – unrecognized. And hence we are struggling to survive. We have left our source and hence we just keep trying so hard to make something good happen. Because no good happens when God who is Good is not in the picture.
So what am I trying to say?. Go back to your root. Reroute back to your source and stay in your lane. Stop trying so hard to function out of your natural habitat. Because trying so hard to do this, can only lead to more pain, hardship, and embargo you most likely will need God to help you fight off.
Just as a plant would thrive only in its recognized soil type (loamy or sandy) as the case may be. But wouldn’t, when planted outside its “recognized” soil type, so also we are. We can only function right and function well when we let go of ourselves and seek God!.
Let’s read this Bible verse:
But first and most importantly seek (aim at, strive after) His kingdom and His righteousness [His way of doing and being right—the attitude and character of God], and all these things will be given to you also.
Matthew 6:33 (AMP)
Our natural habitat/ dwelling place is in God. Hence, if we try to do any other thing before seeking Him first, we are most likely setting ourselves up for a big failure. And I am sure we don’t want that. So why don’t you recourse and get back to Him – your only source. He in whom we can fully and truly thrive in. He is our source – made in His likeness. Hence a life outside of His aura and demeanor is just a shadow of itself.
Begin to live the FULL life today. And let’s get back to seeking God first – the one, who is your source and is also mine.
