Messenger: The wind blows and we do not see it.
We live and were trained to act certain ways.
Some of these ways were imperfect.
As much as I may want to see the wind I cannot
Why did God give us the hidden wind?
Why does God call us to faith?
God wants us to love Him and others and He tests us —
and helps us to grow out of these imperfections —
or like the hidden wind — when God gives us
a little insight into our weaknesses we
can say —
"Oh I don't see me doing that God."
Love may be seen by our actions, but we do not touch it
Constant tension in a person may be seen how there
is always, conflict, confrontation when they
are there, but we do not touch tension, hatred,
disharmony as such.
A person blind to their disobedience to authority may
automatically try to get away without doing
what they need to do, just because one over
them told them to do it.
It is an act of the will, when children and adults obey
those over them, even though it may become
somewhat habit forming.
God gave to us such beauty to see, blue skies,
puffy clouds, autumn days, wavy oceans,
but in all the beauty of this earth, it can
go unnoticed by some and they can be ungrateful
if they live in constant tension thinking
thoughts that aren't true.
Does the beautiful blue skies seem to go with
happy days and
the cloudy, cold dark night with sad ones.
You know what — it may seem it should be
that way, but I have had sad sunny days and
good cold dark nights.
So it tells us our happiness is not in the elements,
the houses we are in, the sunny days —
nor our sorrow in the dark cold nights —
We have a free will and darkness is in our
thoughts, light in our heart — love in
our soul and hatred in our clenched
fist motivated by an angry heart.
Sometimes we just can't even see our angry,
tense, bleeding hearts, months, years of abuse
disappointments, unmet needs from childhood
may lead way to constant angry, hatred thoughts,
but we can change and control even these
things we do not see.
We have a free will —
God shows us in the death - there is the resurrection —
I have walked behind Jesus and said "yes" —
Do we say "yes" to do God's will when men
spit in our faces?
Argue with us for the sake of argument.
I learn one thing —
Surrender to Him
Surrender to His will
Surrender, surrender, surrender — in this we are set free.
NOT MY WILL
But Thine BE DONE
Quit trying to force what
God has made clear to us
is probably not His will.
Embrace the green lights
Let Him have His way.
