Those that know me, know that I’m not necessarily a J. Moss fan. However, the other morning I woke up with his song called “Rebuild Me”. No matter how much I tried to shake it, I couldn’t. So, I took that as a sign that there was a lesson in this song/message for me. So, me being the researcher that I am, I looked up the definition of rebuild. The definition was very eye opening for me.
Rebuild: verb// 1. to repair, especially to dismantle and reassemble with new parts: 2. to replace, restrengthen, or reinforce: 3. to revise, reshape, or reorganize.
For those of you that have been privy to what I’ve been going thorugh the past 3 or so months, know that is revelation in it’s purest and simplist form.
When God revealed to me that I was in a rebuilding stage of my life, John 8:23-24 (The Message Bible) was one of the very first scriptures that I read.
Jesus said, “You’re tied down to the mundane; I’m in touch with what is beyond your horizons. You live in terms of what you see and touch. I’m living on other terms. I told you that you were missing God in all this. You’re at a dead end. If you won’t believe I am who I say I am, you’re at the dead end of sins. You’re missing God in your lives.”
I read that passage over and over because to be honest, I could NOT see the God in what I was going through. I was so busy focused on me and waddling around in how unfairly I have been treated in this time of my life that I couldn’t see God.
Friends, I know it looks rough right now and you may not be able to see the forest for the trees, know that God is up to something. It is our job to worship through it all. Then, we will be able to see the God in our lives and allow God to begin rebuilding in us.
I’ve been broken and stripped naked and I’m standing there with all my “goodies” flapping in the wind for the world to see…lol However, I’ve learned that I’m not alone besides God, I’ve had some AMAZING people that have allowed me to “bend their ear”, cry, vent, and just feel sorry for myself during this process. I now feel stronger, wiser, and better for the experience. Over the next few posts, I will be sharing what God is revealing to me to learn from and then share with others. I hope each of you will stay around for the journey and promotion to my next place in God. I encourage your feedback and your “rebuilding” stories. I look forward to hearing from each of you.
