The Road Ahead (Soli Deo Gloria)

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.
Isaiah 43:18
You know when God is trying to tell you something…
Friends, He always wants to tell us…something.
Let us listen well. 
You say, “Ask”.
I am asking, Lord. 
You say, “Seek”.
I’m seeking, Lord. 
You say, “Knock”.
I’m knocking, Lord.
I listen and try to figure it out.
But then it seems unclear.
Yet, I know He is a faithful teacher,
a solid guide.
One who longs to hear.
So I start trying to hear Him better.
Until it is clear.
I look right and left
until the right path appears.
I read His Word.
I pray.
I look for those little gifts that speak multitudes…
like dew on a flower,
a brambly path.
A bird singing in the morning
or splashing in the bath.
I listen.
And seek.
And wonder if He heard.
I ask myself,
does he really care for
each and every bird?
Then a breeze gusts through my hair
and I suspect that it’s absurd.
What’s absurd you ask?
I’ll tell you this today,
For you or I to tsk, tsk
and fret,
act with dismay.
For He hears, and cares
and speaks- 
masterfully weaves His plan,
and He holds the smallest feather
and frets not at our demands.
He longs to teach us in each moment
if we will at last,
listen to His whisper
and not dwell upon the past.
Focus on the road ahead, 
He has much more for you
both here and hereafter
With you He is not through.
Nor is my Lord, finished with me,
I’ll take my chances on His grace
and all sufficiency,
and the hope of His embrace.
Let’s fix our gaze on the horizon
He will meet us there
set our eyes toward the sun,
turn away from our fear.
Look toward the East
For His Feast, let’s prepare.
We will be together
always in His perfect care.

Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, 
dwell on these things.
Philippians 4:8
Soli Deo Gloria.
(For my SDG Sisters and Sisters in Christ everywhere, we are united in Him)
