When The Way Is Long

Little Thoughts For Big Days

So when the way is long and unending and the night lasts oh ‘ so forever ‘ ~ to throw in the towel seems awfully tempting doesn’t it? To run and forget it all just seems so much easier than dealing with the ‘stuff’ on your plate. You can run to the farthest room ~ store or the farthest park on the planet, but you know that your night will follow you! It will even beat you there and conveniently hang the welcome sign just to make sure you feel at home with your troubles. 😦

So ~ I guess running isn’t going to do it for us. I guess when the night goes on forever, we have to face whatever it is that makes it so dark, so alone and so empty. Perhaps it’s jealousy that gnaws, fears that stalk, worry and anxiety that tear you up emotionally, perhaps prayers that go unanswered ~ these all need to find peace in the dark nights and our lonely, but oh so sweet and beautiful souls need to catch a glorious vision of a God who made us and yes, a God who really does care and is in full-out control, even when it seems like He’s not. He’s promised never to leave or forsake His own and because He was faithful yesterday, we can trust Him today for that. Are you trusting through the dark ~ the long night ~ the unending unanswered prayer? Don’t fight and don’t run but simply stand still and see the salvation of our Lord.

Exodus 14: 13
“And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to-day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to-day, ye shall see them again no more for ever.”

Deuteronomy 31:6
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Recycle It

So ~ what about all those prayers that you’ve prayed and it seems like no answers come? Well, beautiful souls, they are heard…every single one of them, you just can’t see the big picture yet. Do not lose heart and hope just because you can’t see beyond your humanity. His answers are in a whole different realm other than our little worlds of influence. Just wait and pray on. God doesn’t work to impress us! Contrary to popular belief, He doesn’t put together a neat and pretty little package just because we pray and then present it to us just because we desire it more than anything. No ~ His work goes deeper than surface pretty and plunges headlong into the heart/s and soul/s of the matter. All those issues that we think might be ten giant steps backward are quite possibly three God steps forward in His economy and scheme of things. He won’t waste His energy on nothingness and wrong moves. As a matter of fact, He wastes nothing. He sends it, pain and all, to His recycling program and remoulds and remakes beauty from ashes. You see, we don’t understand His perfecting, designing skills, nor will we ever! Even after we see the final outcome with our own eyes, we will not be able to piece together His plan of action. It’s too involved ~ too great ~ too out of this world and too awesome to go figure. As a matter of fact His works are so mysterious that when things look like they couldn’t get any worse, if you’ve been praying in His will, be assured that in God’s economy of things that disappointment is “in the big picture” His appointment for good things to come. Oh, if we could just be thankful for the little things and tell Him so and watch Him work through our grateful hearts. His work is not a quick fix or an overnight solution. It may take some healing time with Him, but while He’s working on it, will He find us faithful to the end?

John 14:13
“Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.”

Romans 8:28
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
