Jesus, You Lean into our Funk, 20NOV
Jesus, You step into our funk… lean in to take the brunt…
Jesus, You lean into danger for us.
Jesus, You catch us before we even know You are there.
Recently I bent over to pick up a pile of wood and just as I leaned a branch came at me – I leaned into the trajectory – ouch. My cheek blessedly took the brunt instead of my eye. The scar is now shiny. Isn’t that just like Jesus taking the brunt of our sin and death for us? Stepping in…
Jesus ALWAYS is “Getting in the Way” – interesting Word play – Jesus is the Way. Replacing our way with His Way. We should always let Jesus get His Way.
Jesus is always ready to catch our funk – catch our downtimes – catch us when we fall – and to grab our hands just as we reach them up to Him.
Jesus, You hold us until we are ready to stand.
Jesus broke thru to save.
Jesus steps into our funk.
Have you ever had a bad day, wanted to remain upset but the Holy Spirit intervenes and steps you out of your funk?
Have you ever wanted to dwell on something bad in your life but find yourself present with someone else who had/has a worse problem? And find you really can’t complain like you were? And you begin to count your blessings instead?
Have you ever dwelled on being stuck, when you realized that you were placed to deal with these exact emotions or circumstances for another issue, and that later moved you forward.
Have you ever been filled with wholeness in loneliness? Happiness in hunger? Peace in pause?
And perhaps we should not wait for the intervention, and we should today ask Jesus to take away our sins, our funk, our pain.
Jesus You Put Your LOVE into our Hearts for You… You shine thru…
Thank You Jesus for being You.
The Holy Spirit uses all His tools in His heavenly toolbox to construct our days.
We see Jesus move in our lives.
Jesus, You Lean into our funk. Thank You!
