From awe to art

“…Consider and realize how…bitter it is for you when you forsake The Lord your God and have no awe of me…” Jeremiah 2:19 * image

Like raindrops

trickling down a window

creating paths of change

…..

Like stars

sparkling in a night sky

bringing light to dark

…..

Like leaves

filling an empty yard

laying an autumn crunch

…..

May awe of God

refreshing the morn

establish living art.

May my life flow from an established awe of God.

When there are no answers

Isaiah 50:10 “…Let him who walks in the dark, who has no light, trust in the name of The Lord and rely on his God.”*

When the hallway is dark, but that’s where He’s led, it’s better to be there. Better to follow His word one step at a time. To trust that His way will lead to a lighter room.

Gently, He’ll nudge the way to go. Step here. Now there. To the left. To the right. Straight ahead, and now…still.

His presence is our guide and better to be in the dark with God than living by the light of self-lit torches.

When there are no answers in the middle of frustrating circumstances, when the hallway is dark — it doesn’t mean it’s the wrong place. A hall is just a passageway to the next room.

So then, wait. Listen for the Lord’s guidance. And though you don’t see the outcome — the important thing while walking in the dark is to stick with God.

Better to walk in the dark with the presence of The Lord, than to light your own torch and be singed by it’s flame.
