He was magnificent!
He did not see himself
The way she saw him
He had no idea
Her love for him…
He only saw
What she wasn’t
What she would
How many people
Live in the close proximity
That sweet land
Of milk and honey
Where it is easy
When we give God our everything
(which really has always been His anyway),
then what looks to be our biggest failure in life
is most likely the staircase to what is truly the
biggest blessing in our life!
What seems to be “bad” could really be for our own “good”,
for He will never forsake us!
That moment when you realize no matter how much you pour into something, no matter how much control you’ve deceived yourself into believing you have, all you truly have is a small window of opportunity to do the very best you can. The rest, well, the rest is to be given completely back to where it’s always been – to Him.
Having FAITH that His promises stand true, and that He remains on the throne.
FAITH in knowing that what He started, He will finish…even amidst our stupidity.
How nonbelievers get through the valleys of life, I’ll never know or even begin to imagine, nor do I want to.
I’m thankful that while in what seems to be agony and despair, I can recall the words my God spoke so clearly to me at the altar all those years ago, “Stand up and REJOICE! My hand is upon you!
The work is already being done!”
As I fall from the mountaintop into the shallows of the valley, I cry out, and He hears me and rescues me … every … single … time.
