A captive to my thoughts
feeding the triggers,I asked the question. The answer: My interpretation,
In that moment I didn’t stop to properly identify what you had mentioned, No that was furthest from my attention. THERE I am in the darkness looking for earthly comforts, pleasures and thrills with the hope that they could satisfy and dispel the dim, Life was dull or at worst too painful without this passing thrill.
The nagging voice says *foolish* don’t you know this will soon die out?
I know its true,
The taunting onslaught of questions arose again boldly in mind view Y?
Y were these barriers blocking me from experiencing the fullness of knowledge of YOU?
Why had I believed the lie that I was lost beyond finding and these slanted Lines of mine #crooked #unparalleled could never be made straight?
Y had I thought that the pollution could not be cleared? To breathe life again?
Y do I sinfully devalue the power of Christ’s resurrection?
Y was I so aloof, so self indulgent?
Y did bad things happen to people?
Y must I deny what I desire?
Y was my sight so lacking?
Y couldn’t I see?
Not the Holy One but me !
Y was I thinking of I not Thee
Trapped in these iron bars of strategic plots against me, what would set me free other than the very light of Christ
and the work HE did on the tree!
The sun is not outed whether it sets or rises. It is simply not for a time in my GLANCES.
But time was running out I needed to SEE.
The haze that blocked it refracted even greater colour: so the difficulties that are overcome by Christ burst forth with glory to his name: according to his will, if we sought him, if we fixed our eyes to see:HIM, if we acknowledged him our paths would also be made straight through his understanding not ours….. not my invention!!
Open our eyes to see you through the haze and overcome the dim.
1 peter 2:9 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC) 9
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, [God’s] own [d
]purchased, special people, that you may set forth the wonderful deeds and
display the virtues and perfections of Him Who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.
1 John 2:17 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)17 And the world passes away and disappears, and with it the forbidden cravings (the passionate desires, the lust) of it; but he who does the will of God and carries out His purposes in his life abides (remains) forever.
