Yep, it’s here…2014! 2013 has ended and we have already ushered in the start of a New Year.
But you have some unfinished business, don’t you? And some of that business dates back far beyond 2013. What’s “unfinished” might actually be more like a “battlefield in your mind, “(like Joyce Meyers calls it) or perhaps it is a condition of the heart. Either way, let’s merely call it what it is……“yuck.”
Yuck is defined as something messy or disgusting. Messy. Disgusting. Either word can be the simplest definition of your unfinished business.
You know what I am talking about….
That messy relationship, which has left you broken.
Broken. Into. Millions. Of. Pieces.
So many pieces that you don’t know where to begin in putting your life back together. The starting point is clouded because this isn’t the first messy relationship, but a continuation of a broken heart that needs some serious mending.
Maybe it isn’t a messy relationship, but Your. Harrowing. Past.
A past which brings thoughts and feelings that need to be numbed, or at least you think so. That’s where the messy comes in. The numbing comes in the form of a pill, a bottle or perhaps a syringe. For some of you, it may not be some substance. Yet you still numb, don’t you? After all dulling the emotions seems safer than illuminating them. Illuminating them could totally get disgusting, right?
Broken pieces or anesthetized pain.
Dear One, this “yuck” doesn’t need to linger. In fact, whether or not you believe in the God of our Universe. He is calling to you! He is pursuing you! He wants to come alongside and help as you complete this Unfinished. Business. Why not let Him into your business?
Yep. It’s scary! No. It’s not going to be easy! So, why not…..
Allow. God. To. Be. Your. Refuge.
And in 2014, let’s finish this……
“Trust in, lean on, rely on, and have confidence in Him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts before Him. God is a refuge for us (a fortress and a high tower). Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]” (Psalms 62:8, AMP)
