Heavy eyes, heavy body, slow mind, but dusty clarity. The heart ba-dumps ba-thumps with a Love, and a Life rejoicing in Christ. It’s time to be asleep but my soul would rather weep than to miss this opportunity to give His due credit and glory.
Been reading the past published prayers, I’m always surprised at how He always answers my prayers and gives what I ask. Truly, “all things work for good for those who love Him”. I don’t think I’m correctly quoting that word for word but I’m hoping it conveys it’s meaning.
Second and foremost, humility…. Humility births from an intimacy with the Trinity. And right now it’s the second highest of my desires. First of course is to love Him with all my heart, mind, soul, and strength. Or maybe to please Him with obedience to His Word spoken from His still and quiet voice, belonging to He who created the heavens, the earth, the universe, all for the purpose of His pleasure and love. His Word is alive, active, living, and powerful. Read the Word … Consistently and you too can be a fool for Christ. Oops tangent.
Humility, after His agape love, was the most obvious thing I needed. And still do. He knows my steps, and sees my ways. He knows what’s best. He plans my flow my growth my sows. And that’s something very exciting to insight upon. He’s shown three times how my life rests in His hands. Three is the number of the Trinity. Third times the charm yanno.
He resolves all my doubts in the most mysterious ways. He strengthens my faith. Deepens my trust. Tests my strength. Molds my heart. Makes me anew in the knowledge of Christ, who came down and willingly gave His life, obeying our Father, to become the Passover lamb, defying and breaking Death, taking the sting of sin and burning it up in fiery furnace of His heart. suffering for who? Me, you, them, us. for what? The ministry of reconciliation. And why? To awaken us to true life in His love.
A focus that won’t break is required to stay walking on water on that stormy sea. A faith in JC as the Son of God, the Christ, is required to be saved. Be saved from the obliviousity of the ways of this world, the self-centered disease, that only The Lord can cease if only you have a faith to take a walk on the narrow path without socks so your wriggly jiggly toes can soak up His love and send it back way up and above, glorifying Him and horrifying the world. To live is Christ, to die is gain. What is a life in pain to those who live life with One who was slain and risen up in vain for those who aimed to kill their one and only messiah?
