Some victories are won by steadfast surrender
…And a whole lot of time.
Excerpts from Psalm 46:
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, even though the earth be removed..
..Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!”
I resist what your “I will...” infers. I would prefer a time frame or a quick fix, and I would like your plan to match mine.
Forgive me. Quiet me. Remind me who You are.
By your grace, give us the will to endure until YOUR will is accomplished in all that we face. Sometimes we wrangle with superficial silliness, other times we wrestle with soul-crushing agony. May we always know AND share your Only-Divine Joy. Light the corners of this dark world with your love. Give us courage to light our candles at your Faithful Flame and follow you.
