stillness? waiting? really?!?!

So i've got this reoccurring image that i don't know where i first saw it, but it comes around every now and then-mainly when i'm trying to make a decision or sort out what's going on around me. I'm in a circular room made out of mirrors. every single surface is reflective (maybe i got this image from a movie, the labyrinth maybe??). there is one door in that room, but you can't tell its a door, it just looks like a mirror. so i furiously go around the room trying to find the door out at some point the room feels like it's spinning so i loose track of which door/mirrors i've tried and which ones i haven't.

when people have asked me how i've been recently this is the first thing that comes to mind. trying to find my way out of the mirrored room. thinking things are doors when they aren't and just getting exhausted and frustrated. i was telling some friends this a couple weeks ago and they both just spoke stillness into me. not the answer i wanted to hear. i wanted to hear, you're almost there. go for it. instead i got wait. sit in the center of that room of mirrors and wait for Him to open the door.

easier and SO much harder all at the same time. so i'm waiting. sigh.

so true, girl. waiting is the hardest part of it all, but if you are obedient in waiting for Him, He promises to be faithful to show you which door will lead you out of that room...and into a beautiful, glorious season where HE wants you to be! love you!

Cool image - I'm glad you have chosen to wait on God, even though that's one of the hardest things to do.

This is not deep or serious, but did you ever go to the mirror maze thing at Ripley's Believe it or Not in Thailand? That's what that reminds me of. And that reminds me of the polka dot man in the haunted house -- yikes!
