What would it be like?

What would it be like?

To have never known jealousy?

To have never known impatience, or irritability or complacency?

To have never seen anger as a demon; or heard a sarcastic tone that left its mark on the soul?

What would I be like?

If I saw Angels in amongst us everywhere I looked?

If I heard the Voice of God surround the wicked and the crooked?

If I could not discern hatred or envy or strife

If the only thing that registered was the Way, the Truth, the Life

What would my life now be?

If my heart never felt as breaking?

But took the hits and called it love;

In the Christ-like me, in the making

If it never knew the winds of doubt or never shook with fear

If it never wanted to protect itself

Or never emptied of His grace and shame just disappeared

If it had no concept of condemning guilt;

or never felt a selfish hand to touch or bend its way.

If only Gods completeness bled thru its life-force pump each day.

These things are true”, He says to me, “Now live as if it is.”

“No weapon formed against you shall stand.”

“Hear My Voice, and come follow Me and I’ll lead you to this ‘land’.

    What a never ending blessing to know that God stands firm on his promises to us. Many times Jeff and I stood on the His solid ground and that verse held us through because He was in control at all times. “No weapon formed against you shall stand”.
