revelation on the massage table…

For a few years now… I’ve taken time for regular massages… I know it sounds terribly bratty… but often… the time on the table… leads to lessons from Him… or a call to intercede for others…

At the beginning… when I first started going for massage therapy… it was very hard for me to relax… to rest in the work being done…

I kept trying to help… raise my arm… lift my back… turn my head…

The therapist continually reminded… Relax… 

Making a connection to being pliable in His hands… I prayed for my spirit to be sensitive to His touch…

Relax…

Today on the table… I found I’ve learned to relax without being reminded… without fighting myself…

As she worked on arms… shoulders… back… neck… I didn’t try to help… no longer did she have to remind… Take a deep breath… Exhale

I just was…

Thinking back… to the Potter and the clay… the desire to be malleable in His hands… it felt this was now more true than not…

I trust Him more and more… not balking… or stiffening… at a call to obey…

Feeling Him work His will through me… as I listen for His Spirit… follow… obey…

At least for this season… He and I… we’ve come to a place… where I allow Him to work on hard places in my heart… trust the pressing of His hands in my life… and relax…

It’s different…

An answer to prayer…

A revelation of growth… from the massage table…

But now, O Lord, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you are our potter; we are all the work of you hand.

Isaiah 64:8 ESV
