The other day, I found myself yelling out for Calgon to come and take me away. I wanted so desperately to get away from it all. I truly thought that this stuff that you put in your bath water would come to my rescue and wash all of my cares away. But I had not the time nor the energy to go in search of the miracle bath salt, and it certainly didn’t come looking for me.
“Take me away, to the secret place, where it’s just You and me, God.”
Life can get overwhelming at times, but in those times, God desires to take you away with Him, to the secret place, where it’s just you and Him. He wants to pour life back into you, the kind that you long to pour into other people. I am learning that life must be lived out of the overflow. Sometimes, it’s just not flowing and you need a little time to rest, to be restored, and revived in His presence.
As a writer, there is nothing worse than not having anything to say. Oh, I have lots to say, but nothing to offer that will change you. You see, when Jesus comes, He changes us, from the inside out. I want my words to bring about change. Not necessarily big changes (although that would be pretty cool), but the small ones, the ones that make you want to stop and ponder, reflect and to breath Him in deep. I write these words for Him first, and you second. My prayer is that God would give me words to say that would have a ripple effect in your heart, and bring about change.
In those moments when the world seems to be moving too fast and too loud, I cry out for Him to take me away. I’m going to run away with Him for a bit. Oh I’ll be here, and there, but the deeper things He has yet to reveal to my heart. And when He does bring the words, they will change me, from the inside out, and hopefully you as well.
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most HighShall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. (Psalm 91:1 NKJV)
What is it that has you crying out for Him to take you away from today? Take His hand and go with Him. I promise you He’s so much better than Calgon!
