The problem was. . .
The barren, harsh, desert.
Are you in a desert place?
We sing a chorus during worship.
“You are perfect in all of your ways.”
We sing it over and over.
It’s not until about the time that I start to think,
we have sung this line too many times,
that I realize what I am singing.
I let the truth wash over me.
God is reminding me.
Holding me fast.
His ways are perfect.
He is perfect in every way.
Sometimes repetition is good.
Sometimes it takes that long for the message to reach our heart.
Waiting to see what God will do.
Hoping in the promises given.
Knowing that our desert will not last for ever.
the trials of this earth will be shaken for good.
They will be cast off for all of eternity.
For now we will rest in the Ancient Word.
Place our feet on unshifting sand.
We will keep our gaze to the Cross.
Where the battle was won.
Where victory was claimed.
No matter what happens.
No matter the outcome.
God is still good.
He is worthy of our praise.
He will bring about his plan.
And above all; His name will be praised.
I hope you will take a few minutes to listen to this song.
The first few notes still bring such sweet memories of a wonderful
time in my life.
My High School years when God took me and began preparing me for all the was to be in my life.
“They that wait upon the Lord Shall renew their strength”
“Put on all His armor and fight the good fight, and in all our weakness we become so strong He gives us the power and the strength to carry on. “
