The Middle Man
About a year ago, I casually, yet excitedly, blurted out to my family, "Let's change our lives!" My suggestion was met with various responses. Guitar Girl was the most vocal, "Mom, that is so like you! Here we are driving along in silence and you come out with that!"
Well...we have had some changes. Not what I had in mind and none that I would have asked for but God has certainly been in the midst of those changes.
Jesus said of Himself, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last” Revelation 22:13. And I have found Him to be right in the middle, too! He sees the end from the beginning but He doesn't leave us alone to work out the process of getting from beginning to end. He is in our midst ~ our middle.
The three Hebrew boys found Him to be a middle man, too! When King Nebuchadnezzer had those faithful men bound and thrown into the fiery furnace, 3 went in but a 4th showed up!
The king was astonished and said, "Look! I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God” Daniel 3:25. (The fourth man - a preincarnate appearance of the Messiah)
In the midst of our process I am changing. I have posted in the past about some new ministry projects that I have been working on. But so much was put on hold with my husband's accident on 1/1/09.
However even in my middle, God is speaking and I am listening.
A change on my blog is my Monday Magnificat has been moved here. It is my 2nd blog that has been up for awhile, more as a placeholder than anything else. But things are changing...
Are you in the midst of change?
