I'm being broken right now, this very moment. I am a very orderly person (so laughs the rest of the CDO community. If you don't know what CDO is, ask me.)
I have a to-do list for every day of the week. Monday (today) is for going on Twitter, not for updating any blogs. But this routine started crumbling last week, and it has just been breaking down more and more since then, doing the wrong things on the wrong days. Driving me insane.
Why is it happening? (I won't say I'm doing it on purpose.) I feel I am being broken down, bit by bit. My walls of consistency had a very strong mortar. And apparently, it needed to be chipped away so I could learn to get out of my comfort zone.
Staying in my comfort zone keeps me too reliant on myself and my routines. Leaving that safety net, I am blind to possible results. I can't see what will happen, so I must fix my eyes on something else besides myself. Like, maybe God?
The words here explain a promise.
"I'll pick you up, won't let you fall
I'll build your trust and it won't hurt at all"
We just need to trust and believe.
I'm not very good at waiting. Just ask the "advisors" on my softball team who insist I take the first strike. Ha! In everything I do, I almost always find myself saying, "I might as well do it now." And I literally have a fear of procrastination. I'm not sure what I will think will happen if I put something off to the last minute, but I don't want to find out. In college, I was often rewarded in this behavior when I completed syllabi of work by Thanksgiving or spring break so that I had nothing left to do in the semester but play racquetball.
But that isn't the focus of this song. Whereas my attitude was a "let's get it over with" one, this song reminds us that we can have our eternity start now. No need to be a glum Christian. He has saved us, which is cause to rejoice. So let's get the party started! Praise Him now, and you will be in great practice when you see him face to face in heaven. :)
