Sometimes darkness creeps up on my soul, entering the crevasses of my heart and troubling my mind.
I notice the spinning thoughts, the obsession with problems, and the oppressive spirit that weighs me down, and I know it is time –
- Time to walk outside into the whirling, drifting colors of fall;
- Time to allow my mind to wander through drifting clouds and dive into the endless blue sky;
- Time to listen to a rippling steam or the brush of sea on sand;
- Time to be still in the wonder of God’s creation and remember –
My Creator planned and pieced this mighty creation.
My Father has not forgotten His creation, nor has He lost me in its vastness.
My Sovereign Lord is still on the throne, and He is attentive to His children.
My Omnipotent God will honor His promises and keep His covenants, and my life is inextricably hidden in His love for eternity (Colossians 3:2-4).
Evil will not win. Death will not conquer.
When the skirmishes and battles are done, victory is sure.
Until then, He will keep my heart.
Isaiah 40:28 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. 29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
