Through His Eyes

I will not fear the desert place–it is there that You speak to me with greatest tenderness.

I will not mourn lost popularity–You speak Your secrets to the solitary who will take time to listen.

I will not begrudge sleepless nights–You never slumber nor sleep, and keep a midnight vigil with me.

I will not despise small beginnings–my lowly state draws Your heart.

I will not compromise holiness–Jesus balanced His time among tax collectors and sinners with isolating Himself in Your presence.

I will not avoid trials–You test those You love, discipline Your sons, and bring judgment to Your house before Your pour out Your Spirit.

I will not doubt Your word–it has never failed.

I will not cling to anything above You. I will not hesitate to sacrifice anything that stands between us–You will only fill hands that are empty.

Jesus…give us Your perspective…

    Good morning. Isaiah 26:3 comes to mind as I read this. Complete confidence in the Lord, who inhabits all of eternity and sees the end from the beginning. You have made some awesome reflections here.

    Blessings always in Jesus name.
