God Rules Above

Though most of the time spent near this little garden was full of very wearying pursuits, the pictures paint portraits of peaceful moments spent in the garden. How often are we very near to the garden, but not there, still not with the Gardener. Those moments with Him are better than the "necessities" of life. The word is life to those that find it. Burdens lighten, stresses dissolve, for humanity can see that there is One who orders the affairs of men. One who orders things right. 

God rules above.

Why be anxious oh my soul?
God rules above.
And He holds supreme control,
Yet reigns in love.
For the times when all seems grim,
Let us only look to Him,
And those troubles will grow dim,
God rules above.

Circumstances may look bleak,
But trust His hand
For He leadeth still the meek,
To better land.
All we have may be too small,
But 'tis then we must recall,
That One ruleth overall,
God rules above.

When confusion weighs the mind
Which way to go,
When the eyesight seems so blind
It cannot know,
Then on bended knee behold,
As our Guide will there unfold,
All the map that we can hold,
God rules above.

Sonshine & Shadow

Let praise and thanksgiving

Resound to the One

Who knows no misgiving

Through shadow or sun

He giveth and taketh,

But blessed is He

Who never forsaketh,

Though dark the day be

His ear is not deafened,

His hand is not tied,

His grace will extend

To the soul that is tried

At dusk don't forget this-

God's honor and name

Are staked on the promise

That He is the Same

He's proven His faithfulness

In days of old,

So let us have thankfulness

For what He'll unfold

Then lift up your head

To the clouds in the sky,

For our Father has said

All our needs, He'll supply

And though troubles gather

Like vultures of prey,

Remember our Brother

Has passed by this way

He knows what we'll take

To become purest gold,

And our hearts He will make

To His character mould

Then rest in the promise

Of Him who is true,

For He is still working 

In me and in you

And when on the shore

Of eternity's page,

We'll see all before

In the light of the age

And cast crown and praise

At the foot of His throne,

For through those dark days

He has made us His own.

RD//On the Road//Picture Post//Day 6-Headed Home

    Somehow the verses in my journal seem to so appropriately correspond to the day. 

Clouds are either darkness or light depending on whether you or they are closer to the source of light. 

At times the call is to go. At times to stay. But always, always, comes the call to work.
