Use the time given

Take the time needed

Quick responses are not required

Fall silent as legs give out like wistful embers of a fire
almost depleted

Knees buckle

Face down to the ground

Fall no more

Everything begins to look up

 

Ever watch someone endure a trial

You know you could handle better

and wish you could undertake in their place?

Knowing what you know for a fact

Makes all the difference in all matters

Too difficult to explain

Sometimes breathing comes effortlessly

Sounds like a given

Taken for granted

Until we find ourselves fighting for breath

Sometimes we need reminding of the appropriate

Whens’ and hows’

When so much is going on all at once

The former autonomous functions

Now becoming a concerted effort

 

Things lain dormant in our subconscious

Abruptly awaken

When we are pushed beyond the limits of human comprehension

And in these times O’ Lord

It goes without mention

You have our full attention

Even still…

Knowing better tend to stray right under your nose

Finding fascination in other-worldly directions

Entranced,

Allured,

By charismatic inflections

Negating the spiritual

by our own introspections

as if You are indeed…

“too Good to be True”

And if we believe You are as Good,

As Your Good book says You are,

Then why pose we so many questions?

 

The questions sometimes

Bring secrets to the fore

Into the light and through a door

Hidden no more

Mysteries revealed as You will

“When and how”

It pleases You

Once in a while

Every so often

 

I need say

No more

This might just be too darn deep.

The Pursuit


To apprehend
And gather all the holy gems
Long touted
The purity
And peace of walk
For weary years
Long doubted
And pressing forth
The prize seen by these eyes
So worth the contest
Scarce knowing Christ
Is apprehending me
With His best.
 
Philippians 3: 12-14


(Note: There I go again piggy-backing on your good verses. But I think we have been traveling down the same paths recently, the Spirit bringing us in tandem. I stumbled across this little bit this morning, written months ago.)

*(It's a humble honor Mr. Forrester:)*

...and somehow, someway, just when we think we've lost our bearings so completely, by grace and only grace we are introduced to a Just God and given "just cause" to Love Him "just cause" we've come through the dark tunnel and into the Light to discover that "He loved us first". And some things by our own compehension "just" don't seem fair but He is ever "Just" and can be no other.
