Chapter 38: Something Else Under the Sun


I have seen something else under the sun... Humans are a reflection of the image of God A true image of God holding the Spirit of God in her This reverence for the holy space where God resides is the fear of the Lord... So... Where you go I will go Lord Where you lay me to lie, there I will lie Where you call me to remain, there I shall remain Where you nudge me to boldly step into, there I will step into I have seen something else under the sun... Humans are conditioned to act and will out what other humans deem relevant But where the Spirit of God dwells, such human is set apart for the works of God Such human reveres the special position given to her... So... Where you caution my footsteps, there I will obediently listen Where you quickly hold me, there I will humbly surrender Where you hasten my feet to run, there I will do so diligently I have see something else under the sun... Humans fear what they don't understand, cannot see or logically explain But in the Kingdom of God, the senseless is sensible, the thoughtless is thoughtful, and the impossible is possible...

So... Where you have attended to my needs, my heart is eternally grateful Where you haven't attended to my needs, my heart is very hopeful Where you have made it abundantly clear of greater things to come, there I am believing Where you have promised, there I am trusting for your faithfulness Where you have provided and provisioned, there I will steward with gratitude I have seen something else under the sun... Humans are passing through time and space Here for a purpose, gone into holy places someday...we pray But where the Spirit of God dwells, eternity is inevitable Life and chance happens to all humans... So... Where you have protected my life from the hands of the wicked, there I shall forever praise Where your peace has surpassed all my understanding, there I will cling to you and lay at your feet Where your strength has joyfully encouraged me, there I will move forward in faith Therefore what is the gain when another life happens around the sun? Today, my heart aches for the reminder of this truth; that humans are just passing through. Yet my heart rejoices...for the eternal promise to live FREE Today, another year around the sun...38!
