“Is it not amazing, that He who was once God of the fathers of old, has become our Father? A drastic re-adjustment of privileges seemingly too awesome for most to fully come to terms with. So we have the sorry situation of children of God floundering about at a loss about their responsibilities and abilities. If only we would take the time to study the legal document which spells out the intricacies and implications of the change in identity….” – Makafui.
“”Why then testeth thou me Father, when thou already knowest that which is in mine heart?”
“The test be not for that I may know, my child, but for thee (and all witnesses) to realise and acknowledge that which hideth in the deep recesses of thine heart, that Mine righteous judgement be unreproachable.”” – Makafui.
What is there to glean from this realm?
What sense and direction is inherent in this plane;
Where the air gets cloggier by the day,
And morals blurrier by the hour;
Where so much is known, but very little is used or understood?
Really, what are we doing,
Sacrificing long-term health for short-term convenience and luxury?
Father, You deserve more than I give;
And I give far less than I can;
Because I have far more to give than I know;
Instruct me, on all You’ve placed in me;
That I may learn, to truly give all I am.
“One good reason is a lot of motivation. Let’s start asking the right questions.” – Makafui.
Father, why do You feel so far,
When I know You are so close?
Why does this trouble look so overwhelming,
When I know that nothing is beyond You?
Why do I feel so down Lord,
When I know You’ve got such good and perfect plans for me?
Why, oh why, do I cry out so much,
When I know You’ve borne all my shame and distress?
“Sometimes you just need to listen.
Yes, you, I know you think you listen really well,
But you do not listen nearly well enough.
If you did, you would know that I’m always speaking;
Not always in words, but I do speak.
Quiet down. Calm down. Be still.
Then you will hear, and know, and believe.
