I saw a commercial for gorilla glue the other day, and I found its claims to have the ability to hold anything together fascinating. It also got me wishing there was an offshoot brand version for life โ€” for when things fall apart. 

I have had the privilege of having many dances with life. Some of which I did not care for. Life just does its thing sometimes, spinning me around and around until I see a million stars, and none of them me. That is when I have no control, or I am off balanced, unhinged or as the Bible says, tossed to and fro by the issues of life. It has a dizzying effect, and its difficult to see clearly when your head feels like its been hit with two sauce pans, and your issues appear in twos โ€” a double wammy. 

There is a point where you give in, and you let go of your body, even if it is just for the sweet release of all the hurt and pain, weight and confusion; and then your body kisses the floor, and hits rock bottom.

As if life could get any more dramatic, sometimes the fall happens in slow motion. You see it coming but are too tired to brace for impact. Other times itโ€™s a high speed free fall in fast forward, and you barely have a second to think much less prepare a protective stance. Either way, the fall is great, and it is never graceful. Every thing takes a hit, including your mind. 

Rock bottom is much like being in the belly of a whale. All perspective is lost surrounded in pitch black darkness. There is for a moment, no flicker of hope, nothing to grasp unto for inspiration. 

Who do I call on? God. 

What do I do? Surrender. 

How do I pull myself back up? His mighty hand. 

I have learnt that rock bottom is in many ways a spring board to greater things. It is often the one time we see things from a lowly/humble perspective, and we are forced to hang up our god complex. Its a character refinery, a grownup timeout. 

While spinning out of control, there are frozen moments when God speaks and balance is regained. Confusion evaporates. Soundness of mind is restored. It is so like God to flip you over like an overloaded purse, just to empty out the useless, unnecessary and heavy content stored in you, to make room for Him, and for the more He has planned for you. It is so like God to bring light out of darkness and turn a fall to a short break in your victory dance. A moment to catch your breath. 

It is so like God to never leave or forsake us, just so like my father to not just piece us back together, but use what was broken to minister to the need of another.

Wherever you are, in whatever state you are in, God is the master โ€˜glueโ€™, with healing properties that no man-made brand can replicate. 

Who do you call on? God. 

What do you do? Surrender. 

How do you pull yourself back up? His mighty hand. 

Happy monyaaaaaaaay! ๐Ÿ’š
