Finding God in the Mysteries of every day

Week 10 Day 6

Finding God in the Mysteries of every day

Genesis 1: 20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. (KJV)

It is coming on August as I write this today. I was reminded the other day of the necessity of not giving up on the beauty of God’s creation simply because in this hemisphere we have entered a time that can bring what feels to us as oppressive heat. All to frequently this is also our response when relationships, particularly with those who are closest to us morph into something that feels monstrously different than how we have envisioned that relationship should be.

We have struggled through the teen years with our children having experienced the pain of their rebellion and rejection. We have watched as lives, which we cherish still, have spiraled out of control as they sought to discover their own “unique” path through life. One of the most difficult parts of that experience has been to watch as these beautiful creatures, which God saw fit to place in our care, stumbled down one blind alley after another seeking the kind of fulfillment and joy that can only be known in our Lord Jesus, the Messiah.

I have found comfort down through the years, as usual, in the Word of God as stated in the book of Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.. Note that the scripture does not say that everything will be easy, or rewarding, but it does at the very least imply that training in godliness will come full circle. We dare not give up no matter what the age or what has gone “down the river”.  If we have been wearied with trying, fatigued by sorrow, we must seek to be re-energized with power and wisdom from the Holy Spirit. Love in action is the light that will point them to the Way.
