God’s Will in Six Stanzas

“To choose suffering makes no sense at all; to choose God’s will in the midst of our suffering makes all the sense in the world.” – Oswald Chambers

 

A few thoughts from my morning meditations…

There is a trend toward believing life with God is easy, and I would argue it is…and yet, easy is a relative term- we need context. If something is easy, it needs to be clearly shown- easy like …a walk in the park? Easy, like Sunday morning…like running water in the faucet. Easy like, gunshots NOT outside your door, like peace, like safety? By definition easy means without difficulty, painless. I do not find life with God to be “easy”. But synonyms for easy are serene, peaceful, and tranquil. I have found that life with God may not be “easy”, but the peace – the easiness in my soul because of the One who resides there brings stability in an unstable world that continuously offers a variety of reasons to feel shaky…and uneasy.

May I present to you God’s Will in Six Stanzas- yes, 6. For the obvious reason. I pray you know this One who brings easiness, peace and safety to the soul.

As It Is in Heaven

“Moreover, I saw under the sun that in the place of justice, even there was wickedness, and in the place of righteousness, even there was wickedness.” Ecclesiastes 3:16

 

I debated on naming this poem, “On Earth”… but decided after I penned the last lines, “As It Is In Heaven” was a better fit, though this is fresh from this morning’s journal so may need to be tweaked a bit. Either way, I hope it hits you where it needs to.

Praise The Lord

 

 

It is an adventure to know the One True Living God…day and night His Spirit ministers to us. Our God never sleeps. He is ever attentive to the needs of His people. He is worthy of all praise. This little poem came to me earlier this week.

Praise…simple and profound, directed to and by the One who gives and takes away and ultimately has the final say.

I pray you,

Praise the Lord…

As a new year starts many consider setting goals.

As I consider my goals, I can’t help but consider the One who is my ultimate goal… my aim always,  but articulated and affirmed in my One Word 2018.

As we move forward into all God has for us in this new year, may we affirm and acknowledge Him, trusting His purposes and plans will always come to pass. May our will be in harmony with His.
