"Once we clearly acknowledge the soul, we can learn to hear it's cries. - Dallas Willard, Renovation Of The Heart."

It takes courage to pursue our dreams. It takes time and patience to unearth buried treasure. But I believe with all my heart that we must do both.

God has not moved

I was reading over scripture I had previously underlined in my Bible. I came across this Psalm and though how appropriate for our times.

I've already run for dear life
straight to the arms of GOD,
So why would I run away now
when you say,

Run to the mountains; the evil
bows are bent, the wicked arrows
Aimed to shoot undercover of darkness
at every heart open to God.
The bottom's dropped out of the country;
good people don't have a chance"?

But GOD has not moved to the mountains;
his holy address has not changed.
He's in charge, as always, his eyes
taking everything in, his eyelids
Unblinking, examining Adam's unruly brood
inside and out, not missing a thing.
He tests the good and the bad alike,
if anyone cheats, God's outraged.
Fail the test and you're out,
out in a hail of firestones,
Drinking from a canteen
filled with hot desert wind.

God's business is putting things right;
he loves getting the lines straight,
Setting us straight. Once we're standing tall,
we can look him straight in the eye.

Psalm 11
The Message


God has set things right through Jesus. I can, you can look at him, come to him. His heart is for you.
