When it is NOT your turn to move...

When It's NOT Your Turn To Move... #BloggingontheGO Romans 15:5-6 NIV May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Greetings! BlogFam, for the last month or so I have been writing about transition, changing, moving on, and saying goodbye. However, I do realize that there are some of you who feel somewhat disconnected from the conversation simply because it is not your turn to move. You are excited about the shifts in the lives of your friends. You are not jealous. You want to see them do well. However you are not moving yourself. You are not moving because perhaps you are awaiting that final word of confirmation or perhaps you are resolutely clear that you are already exactly where you need to be and until your assignment is complete in that place and with those people, you are being still. Today, my friends, will you indulge me and allow this word to minister to those whose assignment is to be still? PLEASE DO NOT BELIEVE THE HYPE!!! Moving On is not all that some of those around you have made it appear to be... especially for those who are moving out of order, out of turn, out of line, out of the timing of God. And those who are moving need the support and love and patience of those who remain still. It is not a dishonorable position for one to remain... particularly if you know that this is where the Lord would have you to serve at this juncture. If you are choosing to remain stable, still, set in the place where God has you in a season that is not yet over, then KEEP STANDING!!! Your prayerful presence is a testimony of our text on today... Romans 15:5-6 NIV May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. In other words... BlogFam, your stability in the midst of the movement of those around you is a witness that God is able to help you to endure whatever you face right where you are as well as encourage you, uplift you, strengthen you, and give you the peace of mind to remain. Just because there is movement around you and seemingly without you, check again. Look in the mirror. Go back to your prayer closet. Get in tune with the Holy Spirit. The movement in your life may not be the kind that warrants a going away celebration or a moving truck or a new place to live, work, or play. God moves us in so many ways including ways that keep us exactly in the same space and place where we have been. And your ability to just be still in obedience to the One who set you there in the first place has been God's creative way to bless those around you who have no idea where they will land when all their moving halts. And since God has already given you endurance and encouragement, you are now being summoned in this hour to share the same with those who are moving around. It may not be your turn to move but it is your time to remain as a stabilizing presence by the power of God that looks with compassion upon those whose life is shifting for good....or for bad. It is your witness to them about the keeping power of God that will bring the shifting and the standing together so that with one mind and one voice you all may together glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. My friends, do not dismiss this season of stillness and stability and stick-to-it-ness as a time that you are being left out or forgotten or weak. No! If you are in a place where peace reigns in your heart and you know you were set in this particular situation for a reason, a divine purpose and all apart of God's miraculous plan, BE STILL. IT IS NOT YOUR TURN TO MOVE! It is your turn to be a witness to all who are moving all around you. It is your turn to allow our God to show them through your life that God will help you to endure, to hold out, to keep pressing on. It is your turn to speak words of life and encouragement to remind them that God truly is in the mix of it all. It is your turn to remember the times you have moved in your own life and to be a resource, a companion, a prayer warrior, and a friend in the same spirit that you once received. It may not be your turn to move but it is your turn to just be still in the mind of Christ and... May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. AMEN. God Loves You and I Do Too!!! Delesslyn FOLLOW @AudraSunshine or @Spiritedconcept
