Words Of Yea Yea

main image

People have some needs that are excruciatingly deep. Poet Alfred, Lord Tennyson wrote, “Never morning wore to evening, but some heart did break.”

We find ourselves in conversation at times with heartbroken friends and may feel at an utter loss to know what to say. How can we “speak a word in season to him who is weary,” as it says in Isaiah 50:4?

Telling people what human teachers have taught us may have some impact on them. But the most helpful or persuasive words are spoken by those who are taught by the Lord Himself.

That’s why it’s essential for us to sit at Jesus’ feet and learn from Him. The more we receive from Him, the more we have to give to others. George MacDonald pictures this time with the Lord as having “a chamber in God Himself.” He continues: “Out of [that] chamber . . . man has to bring revelation and strength for his brethren. This is that for which he was made.”

It’s through our thoughtful and prayerful Bible study, reading, and quiet meditation that God speaks to our hearts. He gives us “the tongue of the learned” (Isa. 50:4) so that we have something to share with those who are in the depths of despair.

Foot Prints In the Sand

main image

Someone wrote the poem Foot Prints. The poem tells of how a pilgrim was walking in a desert place and he noticed the foot prints in the sand where he had walked. In the good places there appeared two sets of prints and when he had struggled there were only one set of prints and when things were good again, there were again two sets of prints. The pilgrim asked the Lord about this and the Lord replied "When you were in a good safe place that was when I allowed you to walk beside me". The Lord continued, "when you needed me most I carried you, and then when I saw it was safe for you again I let you walk beside me again".

We often forget that Jesus is the good shepherd, and he tenderly watches over us allowing us to walk with him. And guiding us he leads us beside still waters and pastures that are green. But when we've wondered too far away, he places us upon his shoulders until he determines when it is best to walk with him again safely. Remember He doesn't love us with a superficial love but with one that goes beyond our comprehension. Are you wondering where he is sometimes? Have you wondered away from him and fallen? We'd love to hear from you to encourage you that his grace is extended to you write us and let his love surround you!!!
