I liken it to a yo-yo. I am This Girl….flick of the wrist…now I’m back to That Girl….flick of the wrist…This Girl…flick of the wrist…That Girl…flick of the, well, you get the point.
It’s the yo-yo thing. I have it in every avenue of my life, I believe. Eating. Relationships. Marriage. Work. Exercise. You name it, I’m back and forth, lovin’ it, hatin’ it, doing’ it, avoidin’ it.
Unfortunately, I also yo-yo my faith. Oh, it’s always there. Simmering just below the surface. But sometimes, it’s like a slow simmer, few bubbles bursting forth. I talk the talk and maybe crawl the walk. The iPod is on my Fave Travis playlist or maybe The Pit playlist. I flip open my bible, sure enough. I even read some scripture. Kinda blah. Kinda boring. Kinda pathetic.
Praise God, sometimes it’s like a big ole fat rolling boil…bubbles bursting forth everywhere. Bursting with the desire to WORSHIP. Bursting with the desire to PRAISE. Bursting with the desire to STUDY. Bursting with the desire to LISTEN (ok, not so much this one, but it COULD happen).
I paused today to think about what it would be like if God did the yo-yo thing. My heart started pounding in my chest and I had the panic-induced churning in my belly. Just entertaining the notion…imagine if it was reality.
I will never (no, not ever) leave you nor forsake you… Joshua 1:5
I CLING (1. to adhere closely; stick to. 2. to hold tight, as by grasping or embracing; cleave. 3. to be or remain close. 4. to remain attached…) (Websters.com) to that promise.
I will NEVER leave you nor forsake you.
