living here.


here…

being that place between “before” and “thereafter”.

My impatience saps the joy from my heart and life…

and I so easily forget.

forget the gospel

forget the truth

forget grace.

And so, I am surprised by mercy.

It finds me in my anger, and lonliness,

frustration, worry, and fear.

…(the gospel)…

finds me in this moment.

and all I can do is sigh, give thanks

knowing He meets me here.

knowing and believing

that His grace is enough for today.

that He sees my going out and my coming in.

“even there your hand shall lead me,
and your right hand shall hold me.”

“For you formed my inward parts;
   youknitted me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from you,when I was being made in secret,
   intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed substance;in yourbook were written, every one of them,
 the days that were formed for me,
   when as yet there was none of them.

How precious to me are yourthoughts, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
If I would count them, they are more thanthe sand.
   I awake, and I am still with you.”

Daniel 2:22

he reveals deep and hidden things;
he knows what is in the darkness,
and the light dwells with him.”

Romans 11:33

“Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God!How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!”

Psalm 44:21

“would not God discover this? For he knows the secrets of the heart.”
