I am taking the night off. However, I am working on a piece that deals with gifts and our greatest strength and our greatest weakness. I believe it is often the same gift and the battle becomes a matter of what we do with it. Rahab the Harlot saves Joshua and is in turn saved by Joshua goes on to be in the bloodline of the Messiah. Samson, King David, Peter, Paul, their greatest strength was their greatest weakness.
In the meantime here is an entry from way back. It allows me to let God be God.
“What we need in the hour of trial, and what we should seek by earnest prayer, is confidence in Him who sees the end from the beginning and doeth all things well.”
Who sees the end from the beginning and even before the day of our birth?
Who could do that?
And in the middle, between the beginning and the end they could lay out our lives and see everything in the middle, even design the events to happen.
Certainly, this quote is thought provoking, inspiring and most definitely from a literary classic.
How about this one?
“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn’t be. And what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?
Also thought provoking, inspiring and most definitely from a literary classic.
The last quote. An insightful view of how our present culture looks. Everything that is, isn’t. And what it is, it wouldn’t be.
As spoken by The Mad Hatter in Lewis Carroll’s classic, Alice in Wonderland.
The first thought? That quote is from the eulogy for young Willie Lincoln, son of Abraham Lincoln, as written and spoken by Dr. Phineas Gurley.
God sees the day of our death from the day of our birth and in between those two events…doeth all things well.
