Often as we walk through life were looking into a haze. Our sights are set on the things not yet seen, obscured from view by the noise and unknowns of life. But it’s only through our daily relationship with Christ that we can begin to understand where to step next. Sometimes we hear God’s voice or see His sandal prints in the dust. But more often than not it’s when His serenity floods our heart with confidence, when His transcendent peace puts our heart at ease from all our own wisdom and understanding and we step out completely vulnerable to God. This peace does not come to us through a frozen state of waiting and question but by worshiping our creator through faithfulness, obedience and trust.


All the way my savior leads me; What have I to ask beside?

Can I doubt His tender mercy, Who through life has been my guide?

Heavenly peace divinest comfort, Here by faith in Him to dwell!

For I know what e’er befall me, Jesus doeth all things well;

For I know what e’er befall me, Jesus doeth all things well.

Eyes the lenses through which the purpose of life is realized. The dominate focused solely upon the incomprehensible nature of our uncreated father. The lesser fixed on the things at hand, that which currently occupies the expanse of the heart and mind. The near point of visual unity beginning its existence in worshiping that viewed by the dominate through the tangible reality of the lesser. This visual window creates the drive that pushes man to effectiveness and defines his application of reason. And it stretches to the uttermost expanses of our mortal comprehension, the far point of our human understanding.      

Yet these eyes transcend their spiritual roots in the soul and are embodied within spheres of flesh. Windows from the heart and soul of mans inner being, displaying both the inner turmoil of clouded understanding and the brilliant light of awestruck worship to the life giver of the soul, creator God, and Father.

No backup plan

This week the word trust has been plaguing me. It has caused me to hold too question the essence of my personal integrity both past and future. But I have to reflect on the fact that my trust in the lord is just as much in question.
Trust does not just appear, it is formed, and it grows and is strengthened only through the exercise of it. Thus my trust in God is only made stronger as I allow that trust to be tried. Now trust coincides with an element of vulnerability. If I decide to drive my car across the country I trust it and thus am vulnerable to it as I do not have another one in tow if it were to break down.
Trust that is pure does not have a backup plan. It places full confidence in that which is being trusted. But how often do I say that I trust God yet devise a plan in case He doesn’t come through in the way or time that I would like Him to. I say that I trust God to provide for me but I have my backup plan in case I don’t get paid this week. Thus my trust is nullified by the absence of vulnerability. I really never trust Him because as soon as it gets uncomfortable I revert to my own plan. I never allow myself to slip from the precipice and fall free from my range of control to allow God to prove his faithfulness. Now I’m not talking about irresponsibility but I’m talking about living our life as to allow our creator to prove Himself faithful as whom He has says He is.
