Kids: they dance before they learn there is anything that isn’t music.
~ William Stafford
No test or temptation that comes your way is beyond the course of what others have had to face. All you need to remember is that God will never let you down; he’ll never let you be pushed past your limit; he’ll always be there to help you come through it.
~1 Cor 10:13
The test changes faces, times, headlines, situations, but there is always a test. I was watching a favorite show last night. The hero came through with the help of his team, for the love of a little girl. He was willing to die to keep her safe. He was pushed and pushed and just before he was literally going to be thrown into the pit, he was rescued.
There was much joy, and an amazing outcome, the little girl’s custody was awarded to him, though that was not ever an expectation.
This is how life with the Lord is; we live the best life we can, for His glory, rarely knowing the outcome. We get to the brink, and love breaks through.
I know that America as a country is going through a trying time. I know that we as a nation have a major influence in the world. I also believe that love will break through.
Take a deep breath. Fill your lungs with the Lord. Breathe out, breathe Him in. We will dance once more.
Because of Him,
More Than Oxygen
