(this song is my current favorite song to “soak” too)
There are times in life when all you can do is just rest in God. Just lay on the floor, listening to worship music and “soak”. Taking in the majesty of God and His faithfulness to see you through every dark night, and His promise that joy always comes in the morning. There are times…when nothing you can do will change a thing and you must trust Him. Tonight is one of those nights. I do not look at it as a negative thing, not being able to do anything. I see it as an opportunity to see God work nightly. That is what He is best at. Have you seen the stars in the sky tonight? Stunning! Miraculous!
The choice to enter into this place of rest comes right before the laying down on the floor (or curling up in a chair, whatever you do) you make a choice; will you try and make things right that are beyond your capability, or will you simply choose to enter into His presence and let Him have his perfect way in your life. There are times in life when the best thing you can do is just lie there and worship Him, let the tears spill over, call upon His name. Laying there you have nothing to offer the King of Kings but He is so willing to meet us. For years I got caught up in trying to be perfect before I came to the Lord, prayed, or talked with Him. Now, I have learned that sometimes the best thing I can do is lay out a blanket, blast my favorite worship music and just lie there dwelling on God. Giving him total control over every circumstance in my life. Resting assured He will see everything to completion. It has become a favorite time of mine just laying my heart before the Lord.
There are times…when we can do nothing and have to hand it over to God to do the miraculous.
There are times…when offering your weak heart and your faith of a mustard seed are the perfect recipe for seeing the Wonders of God revealed.
So next time you feel like you cannot fix a thing, might I suggest- find some soothing worship music, lay out on the floor and just soak. Talk to God about your heart, your dreams, your loves, give it all to Him. If you have no words, that is okay 🙂 God is amazing as speaking love over His children.
