As I Moved to Within 6 Feet,
Ms. Bunny Sat Stark Still,
As If That Made Her Invisible!
So We Too Often Pretend
(and Suffer Therefrom)
That the World Is Other
God Made It To Be:
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
1 Corinthians 13:9-10
For we know only in part, and we prophesy only in part; but when the complete comes, the partial will come to an end.
Words of Grace For Today
The most difficult part of life for most humans is to accept how any idea or work we would accomplish, at best is incomplete, humble, and foggy. We just do not have God’s perspective on anything. We are mere beggars for God’s mercy, no matter how hard we work.
So are we to give up, or work less diligently, or forget entirely about doing anything good and settle for whatever will ‘get us ahead?’
No, by no means.
God equips us with everything we need to do good in this lifetime, so it’s time to put our shoulders to the yokes, to engage our brains at full steam, and to imagine the best we can …
it’s just we must remember how humble our efforts really are … no matter how majestic or impressive they may seem to us.
We work hard and
trust that God will in due time show us everything.
For now we trust that God walks with us, and suffers more than us are our half-baked attempts at making life good.
And we are thankful
for all that God makes good to come out of our efforts.
A world of wonder lies ahead of us each day, if we are humble enough to apprehend, as God makes us able, what’s what.
