That Awkward Moment ….(Troubled Waters??)

Recently on BBM and on Twitter I noticed that a lot of people say so many things with the #tag “…that awkward moment when …” and most of what was said made a lot of sense and even sometimes funny. Well, I had my own personal experience with such, it was an eye opening moment for me and it was that awkward moment when I realized that I had been chasing the same thing for far too long.

It was on the 4th of July (in the U.S.) and as required by custom, I was planning on where to go watch fireworks with my friends when it occurred to me that; in a particular aspect of my life, I am still where I was on the 4th of July last year, and still vigorously chasing the same thing.

It was a self-revealing moment for me and I had two different emotions: initially, I was sad and I felt sorry for myself. I had been engrossed in something so pointless, investing time and money into it without seeing the result that I wanted. I was so involved in it that I failed to hear God. As a result, for a whole year of my life, I was stuck at a bus stop!!

After I got done beating myself up, I felt gracious and thankful that the Lord had opened my eyes to see that I was going down a road that was dangerous & at the end of which laid emptiness. Proverbs 14:12 says “there is a way that seems right to a man, but the end thereof is destruction….” But just as well, Job 32:8 says that “but there is a spirit in man, and the inspiration of the almighty gives him understanding.”

Well, I found that understanding on the 4th of July 2012, but have you? What road are you walking on? What path are you treading? Have you gone on your way and forsaken the Spirit of God? Is it your need leading you or your Lord leading you? If the Lord almighty is leading you, then you should know that he will NOT lead you beside troubled waters. Psalm 23:2 “…he leads me beside still waters….” Selah!!
