Through the Ages

Where there are no pauses.

I don’t know why one of the things that has always most fascinated me as far as movies’ special effects go is the illusion of suspended animation. The movie that most comes to mind is The Matrix. My favorite scenes are when Neo dodges bullets at the speed of slow motion and then almost to the point of suspended animation, you can hear the bullets whiz by.

I’m probably being a nerd, but I feel like the world has come to that almost but not quite point of suspended animation. Many things are on hold. Appointments which were scheduled months in advance have been canceled until further notice. We live a day at a time not knowing what to expect of tomorrow. Not that tomorrow is ever guaranteed, but we used to at least be able to plan ahead. Now, many of our plans are on suspended animation.

I am going to step into the world of faith now, so if this is not your thing, you can click away if you’d like. I would like to express myself to those of you out there who want and desire to have hope and faith. We are all in this together.

There is One who is not, has never been, and will never be in suspended animation.

Everything but Jesus and the work of the Holy Spirit is on hold.

I trust in this time of uncertainty much is happening behind the scenes, much is being worked out in the heavenlies, and much is being resolved in our hearts and minds by the work of the One who loves our souls, Jesus. He loves us too much to leave us in a state of human suspended mess. His desire is always for the salvation of those who put their faith in Him.

So, I have failed big time so far in this season. I have been annoyed. I have been angry. I have been resentful that my plans and my agendas have been turned upside down and are suspended in mid-air. But the problem I have is I’m a bible reader. Inevitably I have looked in the mirror of those pages and have found myself to be looking pretty ugly lately.

God forgive me! I have cried. I have repented. I’m picking myself up and deciding to do better. I am finally beginning to learn how to dodge bullets of negativity and unproductive thoughts. Help me Lover of my soul!

If you are struggling, I encourage you to pause and think on these things. I am willing to have private chats with you, if you would like the company of one who understands all about being a dire mess! But there is hope on the God of Salvation. He never pauses, never goes into quarantine, never locks down His shop. He is always working.

Blessings!

Just a typical human thriving in the hostile land of life. I am almost at the end of my child rearing years, with the youngest child in the autism spectrum. Three children later I can honestly say the experience has been amazing, this side of it is bittersweet. So I'm just gonna write. I hope I can entertain you at least a little.

  1. Love this and so true!! Throughout this time, a common theme amongst believers I have heard over and over is “what is He trying to teach me?” “what can I learn during this time”. If we are all honest with ourselves (cuz you’re not the only hot mess around here!), there are valuable lessons to be learned, and great opportunity for growth. Definitely a brighter side to this quarantine. Thanks as always for sharing your heart! 💕
