The reason I am “supposed” to Be Here is that I Am Here. Please read further to see this more clearly.
Of the million places I could “be”
All are in the state of misery
For only in this place, Being Here
Will I see He is Always Near
I have never met a moment that He wasn’t already there. I have never had an instant His Love for me didn’t shield me. Not a single nanosecond ever occurred where His protection didn’t surround me, His mercy wasn’t clothing me and His Passion for me to live The Abundant Life Here and Now wasn’t the driving force behind Every occurrence!
Did I always realize that?
LOL, of course not! But this is one of the main reasons God has me Here and Now. A close second reason is to heal others and in actuality I find that neither is second, both are first and foremost in the mind of The God Who Is Love beyond human comprehension.
“Who has gone up to heaven and come down?
Whose hands have gathered up the wind?
Who has wrapped up the waters in a cloak?
Who has established all the ends of the earth?
What is his name, and what is the name of his son? Surely you know!
“Every word of God is flawless; He is a shield to those who take refuge in him.” – Proverbs 30:4-5
The reasons for the First simple key being: “This place is Exactly where I am “supposed” to be” are at there core three fold:
1)Grow to Know Love
2)Grow to Be Love
3)Grow to Share Love
We are continually reminded that God Is Love, it’s just that most of the time we fail to see it and are miserable at remembering it so we keep coming back to the same point.
Is there a time to leave the place you are at? YES Absolutely, just ask the former slaves in Egypt. At that point we learn Faith beyond belief as at times we have to let go of one vine without seeing the next vine all while under us is nothing but alligators, trust me I know from personal experience. BUT, it’s in that moment that our Faith grows, even if we get eaten, it’s Gods Perfect moment for us!
In short, The Abundant Life is somewhat like “Being” on a circus high wire a million miles in the air without a safety net that anyone can see, with daggers down below “Knowing” He is Always with you and “Sharing” a smile as you do backflips, AND learning this Is the Journey that takes eternity so Relax!
Paul said it this way,
“Rather, as servants of God we commend ourselves in every way: in great endurance; in troubles, hardships and distresses; in beatings, imprisonments and riots; in hard work, sleepless nights and hunger; in purity, understanding, patience and kindness; in the Holy Spirit and in sincere love; in truthful speech and in the power of God; with weapons of righteousness in the right hand and in the left; through glory and dishonor, bad report and good report; genuine, yet regarded as impostors; known, yet regarded as unknown; dying, and yet we live on; beaten, and yet not killed; sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; poor, yet making many rich; having nothing, and yet possessing everything.” – 2 Corinthians 6:4-10
