While in God's Grip!
"By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures." ~ Proverbs 24:3-4
Our ability to love one another often involves "mercy" and "sacrifice." As we struggle to sometimes even love ourselves, we find it even harder when applying this to others.
How does God do it?
The patience that God demonstrates makes me realize just how loving God can be. The tragedy of our life involves the times when I am not patient enough to realize God is working something out in God's time, and I expect more.
Today I pray that God gives me the wisdom to wait upon the Lord.
God of the Current...
God of discovery and re-creation,
help me to know
that there will indeed be times of wandering,
but in my wandering
lead me to green meadows;
I understand that there are times of darkness
but while in that darkness,
I know that there will also be the dawn;
that in my heart
which seeks You
through my whole being
will begin to flow
washing over the valleys of my soul;
and that I will journey
wet from the experience
when again I find that I am wandering.
Stay in God's grip!
