PSALMS 139:7-24

Where can I go from your Spirit?

Where can I flee from your presence?

If I go up to the heavens, you are there;

if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.

If I rise on the wings of the dawn,

if I settle on the far side of the sea,

even there your hand will guide me,

your right hand will hold me fast.

If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me

and the light become night around me,”

even the darkness will not be dark to you;

the night will shine like the day,

for darkness is as light to you.

Season 2 Episode 1: Hell on Earth

You ever want something so badly

but you just know it’s not the right time?

So then you take the hit like umm all of 2019 thinking,

“2020 what’s good - maybe you’ll be on my side?”

Then it doesn’t look at all how you imagined - for all the good and the bad!

I’ve had to turn to God and practice praising thank you;

for your protection, your love, and for this journey that I’ve had.

Imagine all of God’s mercy:

doing as much as He can do.

There is still a devil;

we face him every day too.

So are you operating and making choices by faith or fear?

Because only one can manipulate you.

The words practice and patience

were ones I for real, had to adopt.

But when you learn to just be still

your insight gets unlocked.

Suddenly those big things,

feel like little things

because He’s holding onto you.

And overtime His faithfulness

makes you trust in His timing for truths.

It’s all in how you frame it.

In your faith or in your fear?

When you’re running on empty

Do you look to God?

Or do you usually crawl back here?

Keep on moving forward.

Better is all subjective.

Trust in God with all your heart.

And He will transform you if you let Him.

I say that knowing and remembering exactly what it feels like to be consumed by the chaos.

But You've helped me stay anchored in my faith and know what it feels like to stay at peace when there is constant chaos around me.

Because let's face it - it's not just 2020 that we have all been thrown through a loop.

There was a moment that I had this realization or reflection or even prayer of "maybe it's not the chaos around me that is the problem. Maybe it is that I think I can't handle the chaos."

If hell is wherever God is not or wherever God's love is not present, then I also believe that you can be in heaven in a room of people that are in hell - here on earth.

Hell can be when are spiraling in our thoughts - when we are using distractions for however that presents itself to be in each of our paths to get us through the chaos.

Too often, we forget to give ourselves that credit. To recognize how far we have actually come to get here today. We are still standing. Think about that.

"To live is to suffer. To survive is to find meaning in the suffering."

So even when it feels chaotic around you, know, God is with you.
