Utterly unpredictable is God
“He is love”
You say, and say rightly.
And yet the overwhelming essence of the love seldom gives clues to what he will do or want.
After all, in love he made sin possible and left Adam alone with the serpent.
His love drove Jesus to a desperate and lonely death.
And His love filled Solomen’s house with gold in greater abundance than gravel.
What he does (or does not) is indeed governed by love, but by a love I will never comprehend.
The eye is the lamp of the body
If your eye is good, the whole body is filled with light. If your eye is bad, you are filled with darkness.
How great is that darkness.
Renew the eyes of my heart, Father.
Fill me with light.
Help me when the troubles of this life and the weakness of flesh boil up in great overheated red bubbles.
Provide the cool, clear living water from your spirit. Only You can give peace, power, calmness and love.
My need for you is greater than I will ever know.
