Repose

 22.9.10



 

HEAVENLY FATHER,

My faith is in Thee,
My expectation is from Thee.

I believe Thee,
accept thy Word, acquiesce in thy will,
rely on thy promises,trust thy providence.

I bless thee that the court of conscience
proves me to be thine.

I do not need signs and wonders to believe,
for Thy Word is sure truth.



I have cast my anchor in the port of peace,
knowing that the present and the future are in nail-pierced hands.

Thou art so good, wise, just, holy,
that no mistake is possible to Thee.

Thou art fountain and source of all law
what Thou commandest is mine to obey.

I yield to thy sovereignty all that I am and have;
do thou with me as thou wilt.

Thou hast given me silence in my heart
in place of murmurings and complaints.

Keep my wishes from growing into willings,
my willings from becoming fault-finding with Thy Providences,
and have mercy on me.

If I sin and am rebellious, help me to repent;
then take away my mourning and give me music;
remove my sackcloth and adorn me with beauty,
take away my sighs and fill my mouth with songs;
and when I am restored and rest in Thee
give me summer weather in my heart.





May you find repose in Him,

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."

-Persis

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
