Scattered and torn
Weary and worn
Bits broken off of me
Not sure I can go on
I’m falling apart
In front of You
I reach for Your hand
And, still, You remain
On these kinds of days, the act of putting one foot in front of the other requires a stubborn, dogged faith in God’s love and the fact that He has given His Word to us.
Obedience with gritted teeth. Obedience when worshiping Him makes us look foolish to the world. Obedience without questioning our Father. Obedience to the One Who is unseen.
Know this one thing: Unseen does not mean absent. God will never be, cannot be an absentee parent to you.
He is waiting excitedly for that moment until you step into eternity and He truly gets to be with you. He has made plans for all your time together. He is watching for you now. ~ Debbie Bouckley
But if we hope for what is still unseen by us, we wait for it with patience and composure. Romans 8:25 (AMP)
Since we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting), but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting. 2 Corinthians 4:18 (AMP)
Does the Eternal One delight in sacrifices and burnt offerings as much as in perfect obedience to His voice? Be certain of this: that obedience is better than sacrifice; to heed His voice is better than offering the fat of rams. 1 Samuel 15:22 (VOICE)
