Fall Back

psalm 107Time changes are funny things. You know they’re coming, you don’t believe it will make any difference at all, and then suddenly you realize how exhausted you are; a lot like trials in general.

I whisper to myself, “I should write this down.” How many times have I said that this year? How many times have I forgotten or gotten side-tracked? Does that make me a bad person or just really forgetful?

“Write this down,” He speaks to me again. God and I have become quiet friends over this past year. I’m learning things I thought I already knew. I thought I believed in Him but I only had faith. I’ve found this is not the same thing. (I should write that down.) I thought He expected so much from me but realized that I am the expectant one. (I should’ve written that down too.) I thought I knew His heart; I had no idea why. (I didn’t record that somewhere?) He does answers prayers. He will protect me. I am heard. (Where are my notes?)

I didn’t spring forward, I fell back. Lucky me, He loves me anyway. He didn’t expect me to do a thing. I’m tired, but I’ve learned so much.
