the reason

Wood

 

In the quiet You find those who need You most. No matter what the situation is, You are there, watching.

Perhaps it’s in these moments that we truly see Him for who He is. Maybe it takes silence to feel Him here. Sometimes it takes deafening quiet, where you can’t even think and you are hurting to hear Him, that you find Him where you are.

 

He is always watching.

 

Sometimes we see not nor do we hear Him—hear His voice, feel His breath, upon us. Yet just because you see not, feel not, hear not, does not mean He is not there. Because He is.

 

The wind and rain know Him, they abide by His word. The birds of the Heavens, and the creatures of the earth live by Him. He is they’re master, and they are His servants. All things move, breathe, live, by Him.

 

All things.

 

Even you, a tiny speck in his vast universe, YOU. Yes YOU. You are His. And with one word He can erase your existence from this earth. Yet you are still here right now, living. Just think for a moment about the fact that YOU WERE CHOSEN TO LIVE AND BE A PART OF HIS PLANS. If that is not crazy enough for you, I don’t know what is. But what I say is no story, it is no little thing. It is one of the greatest and most important things, and you have a choice to acknowledge it.

 

He Is The Reason For Why You Exist.

 

 

{in all things there is} Joy

in all things there is Joy

 

My brothers, count it all joy when you fall into various trial.

James 1:2

Trials are those things that happen to us that we could probably do without. But the thing is, you can’t do without trials. You see, trials are what build us up—or at least they’re suppose to build us up. It’s when we let them put us down that the trials turn out to be a bad thing. You see, trials are meant to strengthen us, not break us down.

One way to keep your spirits up is to count the Joys and Blessings in the midst of the bad. It isn’t as easy as it could be, but I guarantee it will get you through the hard things a lot quicker than wallowing in them.

Count It All Joy, my friend.

{in all things there is a} time…

There is a Time

 

In all things, there is a Time. A time for what? For EVERYTHING. A Time for Peace. A Time for Joy. A Time for Speaking.

It doesn’t matter what it is, there is a Time for it.

Maybe it wont be in YOUR Time.

Maybe what you want to happen NOW wont happen till later.

Maybe it takes Time for things to be worked out.

Time. Is. Not. In. Our. Hands.

Sometimes we have to wait for our Time—for our turn.

Because Time is in our Maker’s Hands.

For every matter there is an appointed time, even a time for every pursuit under the heavens.

Ecclesiastes 3:1

{in all things there is} a Purpose

There is a Purpose

And we know that all matters work together for good to those who love Elohim, to those who are called according to His purpose.

Romans 8:28

Purpose. That one thing that we all tend to look for in every single thing we come upon. The Reason, for this or that. Why did this happen? Why did I meet this person? Why, Why, WHY?

The point is not to ask why. So what does one do in the middle of events that cause us to question what is happening? We trust.

Trust that there is more than all the questions and doubts that flood your mind.

Trust that everything is going to be sunny in the end.

And in Time, things will work themselves out for good. Because all things work to good for those who LOVE THE FATHER and to those who are called according to HIS purpose.

in all things, there is…

Inspired by Ecclesiastes 3, I’ve decided to put together some posts that focus on what can be found in the midst of whatever each of us goes through in life. And for more encouragement, look out for posts on The Narrow Passage Facebook page.

in all things there is...

In all things, there is a purpose

                     there is a time

                     there is joy

                     there is peace

                     there is healing

                     there is light

                     there is hope

                     there is good

                     there is mercy

                     there is forgiveness

                     there is love

                  there is wisdom

                  there is beauty

 

If you would like, you may put what you have found in the midst of trials, in the comment section, finishing the sentence “In all things, there is…” And I will possibly post something on it. :)

for everything there is…

Waving In The Wind

For every matter there is an appointed time,

even a time for every pursuit under the heavens:

A time to be born, and a time to die;

a time to plant, and a time to uproot;

a time to slay, and a time to heal;

a time to break down, and a time to build up;

a time to weep, and a time to laugh;

a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

a time to embrace, and a time to refrain ;

a time to seek, and a time to lose;

a time to keep, and a time to throw away;

a time to tear, and a time to sew;

a time to be silent, and a time to speak;

a time to love, and a time to hate;

a time for battle, and a time for peace.

-

He has made it all, pretty in its time.

Even the ages He has put in their hearts,

except that no one finds out the work

that Elohim does from beginning to end.

 -

I know that whatever Elohim does is forever.

There is no adding to it, and there is no taking from it.

Elohim does it, that men should fear before Him.

-

Whatever is, has already been,

and what shall be, has been before.

 

All For You

Take Me Now

Every moment, that I breathe

Every second, that I see

Every day, that I live

That my heart is beating

-

All the words, that I say

All the things, that I do

Every chance, that I take

I want to lead them back to You

-

One moment to change the world

One second to speak a word

To show them who You are

-

My heart, that’s beating

The life, that I’m living

I want to live it all for You

All for You

Every second, I want to give

Every word, that I say

I’m pointing back to You

It’s all for You

-

Just one word, to change a life

One voice, that comes alive

A soul, giving it all

To reaching, and saving every broken heart

-

You’ve got a moment, to change the world

One second to speak one word

To show them who you are

-

Do you hear, the sound

Of a million hearts beating?

That’s the sound,

Of a one army fighting

For

The

King

-

Do you hear the sound

Of a million voices speaking?

The sound, of a chorus singing

To

Their

King

-

One moment, to change the world

One minute to speak a word

To show them who You are
