Road to Easy Street

He is so good! He gives us just what we need, in His time, which is when we need it. Sometimes we don't even realize that we need it, because we think we can work our own magic. We're hustling and bustling, trying to figure things out; shedding tears; blood pressure rising... we get in a frenzy when our backs are against the wall. Stuff happens!! So when we can't find immediate answers, those humanistic instincts kick in. 
"How soon we forget whose child we are". As Christians, we say we know God, but do we really?? We throw up our hands in despair; we throw temper tantrums like little kids who can't have their way; we get all worked up because 'we' can't work out the problem; we personalize failure and give up! But guess what? That's what He really wants us to do... let Him. "Who's your Daddy"? 

Just when we think it's all over, we've run the race, we've lost the battle, He is standing on the sidelines watching and waiting and then... HE INTERCEDES!

He guides us as He touches us
Takes the reins to lead us out of confusion
Clears the path of obstacles so we can see
and think clearly, as to not draw own conclusions

And then, only then do we grasp who truly has the answers. The only magic touch is the 'Touch of the Master'! When we let Him guide us in the path He wants us to take, we will realize we're in for the ride of a life time. Consequently, we wonder "what was all the fuss"?
... riding on easy street.

Decisions, decisions! Has there ever been a time in your life when you were left to make an impacting decision on something MAJOR? All eyes were on you and you couldn't bail out because your responsibility dictated that YOU had the final say. The ball was in your court!

Problem: Your demeanor is passive, with a tad of aggression if you're passionate about a cause. You generally hesitate to make 'big' decisions for fear of hurting someone's feelings, much less making an 'unpopular' call.

With that being said, how did you get yourself into this situation? Well, the initial concept was yours, you  put it out there and your counterparts ran with it. Talk was cheap, but now those ideas have begun to come into fruition. The next step is to execute and finalize what YOU had started. Now you've got to step up your game or foul-out!

Realization: Somebody believed in you, "Now what"? You started this and you've got to progress to the next level. HOW do you muster-up the courage to pick up the ball and run with it... or just PASS?

Hiding in the bushes and don't want to be seen, because you think your importance is nothing but a pipe dream. You don't NEED to be seen! You're letting others 'show' your work, even taking the credit, while in the shadows or behind the curtain you lurk... unassumingly, unselfishly, unnoticed.
You don't NEED a stamp, don't NEED a pat on the back, don't NEED to be pointed out, as a matter of fact.

Well, the reason you say, is that you're just exuding the love in the things you love to do and you do it 'just because'. Anyway, HE gets the glory when you're through and that satisfaction in itself, is enough for you.

Unbeknownst to you, you ARE seen from afar and admired by many. Some of whom, like yourself, not accredited their accomplishments. Your 'worth' does not go as unnoticed as you may think!

Summation: Humility is not exploited, but anointed! You ARE acknowledged. Maybe by no means of your own, but there is an "All Seeing Eye, Watching You", and SEES.
