The Other Place.
“Show them…let them know why they are there…bring only the right people. Only You be Glorified…not anyones agenda but yours.”
I know in my own little world I can flow with what God wants… I feel safe there…I know above all else He has got me..
I have seen it.
But this new thing…this creating the “other place”…naming it Prayer~Fast~Worship…inviting others to come…
You should see how fast humans want structure…How do I explain He just wants us to show up?..wait on Him.
No wonder He chucked those Ten Commandments on some nearby stone…for 40 days He just wanted to hang out with Moses… but in the end they wanted structure.
People want time spans… their human hearts beating a set amount per minute, and them wanting to know what will occur in each beat.
Funny how I created a loose frame… “we will make the middle hour more of an organized music session”, so they could organize their human minds…. and He has already flicked it.
(And I laugh typing that!)
On one hand I worry (and it’s a teensy worry, luckily I don’t care much what anyone thinks…err…to a fault) …
what if He has us just stand there…
what if they are bored…
what if they are coming to be entertained…and then in the next moment I feel that lift on my shoulders…and I know,
It’s not mine..
He told me to make “the other place”
He told me to “tell them to come hungry”
And then with all that…I still ache for them all to see it… to see how bad He aches…truly aches to just be with us.
Sad yet happy if that is the New Thing.
Sad if The New Thing is us coming to Him just to praise Him…and that is it…with nothing expected in return.
Happy if it can be a New Thing…
When time stands still, or falls away, and Beauty can be noticed…appreciated…Praised.
