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.

Chances are if you are on this writing journey, you not only love to write, but you also love to read. Today’s prompt is all about the books you love, or have loved, to read. Originally I wrote the prompt to focus on a favorite Devotional, but as I considered this further, I realized that the power of a great book to speak to us is not limited to Christian literature alone. The power of great literature or just a timely read can speak volumes to us personally, and sometimes great insight and inspiration can come from unexpected places.
