Battles in the Secret Place

December 27, 2013

“Our battles are won and lost in the secret places of our will in God’s presence, never in full view of the world….Not often, but every once in a while, God brings us to a major turning point–a great crossroads in our life.  From that point we either go toward a more and more slow, lazy, and useless Christian life, or we become more and more on fire, giving our utmost for His highest–our best for His glory.”         Oswald Chambers – My Utmost for His Highest

I’ll walk in the light

The first thing I’ll do is sit

In the secret place

One minute, ten or twenty

Alone contemplating love

~

How I interpret the facts

Will determine directions

Wisdom is needed the most

We are subjective

~

And who defines love

My lived experience speaks

That’s my decision

This is subjective, I know

One life captures my soul

~

Some things are true regardless

The sun rising and setting

The seasons will come and go

Death is a sure thing

~

Who speaks to the death

What about the injustice

I will make a decision

Consider the facts

Interpret them in some way

I’m responsible for that

no ear has perceived,

no eye has seen any God besides you,

who acts on behalf of those who wait for him.”  Isaiah 64:4
