Well then…

“ A man should go
where he won’t be tempted.”
{Movie – A Man For All Seasons}

For me…in this season…
i know where i am tempted.
I am tempted to lose hope.
Living in the seen…is how it plays out.
Lack of trusting anticipation…is how it feels.

“…For how can one hope for what he already sees?
But if we hope for what is still unseen by us,
we wait for it with patience and composure.”
Romans 8:24. 25

Hope that is seen should not be called
Perhaps this is temptation’s root…
anticipating & trusting only the seen.

The place i will not be tempted:
engaging my mind around
His controlling
when i can not see
…what’s ahead.

What to do with the seen?
The now.

Trust…i am living in His will.
Laugh…a faithful letting go.
Move…my lips aloud in praise.

May the God of your hope
so fill you with all joy
and peace in believing
[through the experience of your faith]
that by the power of the Holy Spirit
you may abound
and be overflowing
(bubbling over)
with hope.
Romans 15:13

Understand this…
i do not.

God is making this
have meaning.

He who did not withhold
or spare even His own Son
but gave Him up for us all,
will He not also with Him freely
and graciously give us
all other things?
Romans 8:32

The ultimate Hope.

Beloved, now are we the sons of God,
and it doth not yet appear
what we shall be:
but we know that,
when he shall appear,
we shall be like Him;
for we shall see Him
as He is.
I John 3:2
