The Wait of the World

020 - Copy

The wait of the world when the press is strong on every side,

within, without,

and we feel guilty for complaining in the presence of so much blessing,

but the pain is constant

and a constant reminder that we are not home yet;

and so we wait under the weight—

the weight of this alienation,

this strange mix of great dark and hope-filled light,

ever looking up and on,

letting go more and more the grip on these rags and rages that wear and wear.

But we work on here,

and we hope here,

and we wait here in the world.

 

“There is no time for anything but getting ready to go.”

~~George MacDonald

    There is so MUCH that GOD displays for us in the heavens!!! Oh that our eyes would be opened to what His speaks. . . that our hearts would humbly respond; for GREAT IS THE LORD, AND GREATLY TO BE PRAISED!!!

    I am thankful you share such pictures, for there are many of us who aren’t fortunate to see it for ourselves!
