Luk 18.1 +

Luk 18.1

“…Men ought always to pray, and not to faint”

 

Do you pray? Oh, I expect many readers pray for their “beans & tatters.” And many say a few sleepy words before pillowing their heads. Do you pray in the day? in the night? Have you established a Praying Place? Is there a spot sacred to you & God: an attic corner, a barn nook, a group of trees, a stretch of lake/ocean shore where you hold forth in prayer? Go there. Wait before the Almighty. “…Pray ye therefore the Lord…”

“When wise men see the Savior

they always go home a different way.”

– S D Herron

 

Heb 11.38 (Of whom the WORLD was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the EARTH. Earth&World – think. #28

 

MINE

I claimed it, I owed it; it was mine!

That mountain of ponderosa pine,

That spread of sage and crested-wheat grass

That cluster of boards and nails known as a house

That orchid of fruit I’d call “world class.”

 

I paid the taxes, held the title

To rolling pastures green to the line

To cattle and horses and sheep so fine

To full-headed, golden, bearded wheat

It belongs to me and you can’t take it away

Uh – What did you say?

 

You say that another soon will own

These bottom lands my hand has sown?

You say I won’t sell it or give it away

Instead I’ll simply leave it here when I sigh

That final sigh and quickly die

Another! Imagine that!

 

Another will sit where I’ve sat and look o’er these fields

And claim them his and gripe or brag about their yields

And then like me he also will slip

Beyond the sound of human lip

And, leave as I will, his all behind

His ALL, unless he will the Savior find.

– eab, Sep. 1995

 

Isa 55.9

“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,

so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

 

Heaven will have no staunch republicans. And, no unfaltering democrats will be there either. (The same could be said for all historical “parties” in USA, Europe, Asia, etc.) Political connections mean nothing up there. In fact, as we became more interested in Paradise we begin to expect less from some “worker’s paradise.” We become less interested in making earth a-kind-of- heaven, & want to live for the Real.

Wesley “…Requested in his will that 6 poor men should bear his corpse to the grave

& should be rewarded with 20 shillings each…no hearse, no coach…”

– Able Stevens

 

If your “ex” gave a signal that he (or she) would come back, would you have enough God in your heart to forgive them & take them back? Would you re-marry your rightful (in God’s sight) life companion? If not, maybe they sense that & know not to come back because of your attitude? Hello!?!
