Always Happens.

Sep 01

A God Story.
There always is one.
Recent journaling captures quite a familiar appearance …



Strengthened again & again to win a victory over an inward foe.
Finding myself tired out & thirsty when quite close there is a quenching.
There is a Water.
Then, the cry for help.
The Word of Life comes.
Always happens.


The inward foe:
accept the no-s,
receive the yes-s.



No-s to weddings, kittens, road trips & beaches.
Yes-s to His Word & Presence amongst
… herbs flourishing in cracked & lovely clay pots,
… belated sunflower seeds popping up; unthwarted,
… horses crunching the oat & molasses bounty,
… escorted evening strolls with all the doggies of country living,
… text & instagram richness of loved ones callings, gifts & joys,
… life with my men-folk, the relishing & adoring of the now.


God Himself restrains the yearning to fix and waits for me TO COME, TO BRING what’s dark into the Light of His Love for help & for cleansing. Why the fix & be relevant modus operandi for this sojourner?  Why not purposefully lead the foes into His Love & Presence for transforming.



In the end the crisis will always be a God story, just the moment when the startling meaning breaks full upon us.
” … Be thankful & say so to Him …” Psalm 100:5
“Who is the King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.” Psalm 24:8
” … we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ.” II Corinthians 10:5
