Good Morning, God!
I have no idea how long this Green Gecko has been living in my favorite room. But yesterday as I was admiring the koa whale on the wall — I thought, What is that green leaf doing on it?
Well, it wasn’t a leaf but a LIVE gecko!
Then this morning, it came to me that I have a lot of Hidden Creatures living inside of me. Alas, God, many are not as delightful as this gecko.
In fact, it was impressed on me with startling clarity that I have been trying to “protect” myself with Fat and Fears. Huh?
How long it has taken me to get a good look at my behavior! Why now? Why not years ago? Well, it could have been because this morning one of my friends in our weekly women’s Prayer Group at church gave me a mini scolding/exhortation that NOTHING feels as good as RESTRAINT!
Restraint? Feel good? It was a Brand New Thought!
It turned “Restraint” right side up. Before “restraint” was a Block put in front of what I was doing . . . now, it is not a block . . . but a Positive, Powerful and Active Navigational Wheel.
I can feel energy that used to go into negative stuff now flowing into my Command Central Control Hub. Good Heavens, God! I can actually feel that I HAVE a Command Central Control Hub. Who knew???
And out of that amazing REFRAME somehow came the “information” that I have been padding myself with Fat and Fears. Fat yes . . . but FEARS? I guess part of me felt that fearing stuff would “protect” me? How odd . . . how wrong! And, how clever Fears are at Hiding!!! Better than little green geckos!
So, God, THANK YOU for the new understanding. And when I see the gecko — please help me remember what I’ve learned!
