My head is spinning, but not like Linda Blair’s

I was told somewhere, long ago, that while God’s timing may seemingly take FOREVER, once it comes, things can move into place swiftly. As I get older it feels like I am more able to catch a glimpse of His hand moving the chess pieces, occasionally. And they have been sliding into place pretty quickly.

I’m not sure what He’s up to, but my life has taught me that His promises are true, and that my part for now is just to “be still and know.” Or, as I’ve seen it put:

Be still and know that I am God. 

Be still and know that I Am.

Be still and know that I.

Be still and know that. 

Be still and know.

Be still and.

Be still. 

I haven’t been writing much recently, primarily because…Well, because I’ve been taking a lot of things in, and processing. You know, figuring out what MY part is in things, and looking for the good while still addressing the wrongs in my life. 

Yesterday I believe I found a door that’s about to open for me, and this morning I learned of another door closing. It’s not difficult to accept the door that’s closed, as it had become an unusually unpleasant situation in recent times, and I’d talked to God about whether I could just GO. 

Anyways. This morning I got the news about the door closing and just moments later got about 4″ closer to a concrete post than I’d meant to. With my Element. It was pretty loud, and I’m grateful that it wasn’t any worse than it was. 

So, I guess I’m telling you that things in wondrland are moving right along.

I’m trying to make sure the seatbelt is locked and keep my hands inside while the ride is still moving. 

I’d love to hear about how things are progressing in your world! What helps you when you feel like Gilligan in the Minnow during that awful storm? 

Blessings from the Victorian house on the hill.

  1. As always, I love and appreciate what you share, and how you share it. The addition of the delightful video was icing on a wonderfully-layered cake. Based on this post, we are on parallel paths 🙂 My post (Jan. 24/17) “Just Sit Right Back And You’ll Hear A Tale, A Whale Of A Bait-full Trip is a nod to Gilligan’s Island, and serves as a metaphor for where I am in my own journey. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  2. For me it’s just praying to God to trust Him. As that old hymn says ” I am not skilled to understand, what God has willed what God has planned, I only know at His right hand, stands One who is my Savior”. Some days are so gut-wrenchingly hard. And it’s only by His grace that I get through any of it. And then…it’s all worth it. Hugs to you ❤️
