    Sometimes we spend so much time “in the struggle” we forget the miracles of the past that have positioned us
    in the path of a brighter day. We sit and drink milk and honey in the land of milk and honey and we forget that God expects us to dance sing and praise his name in all that we do. On this hea Gods green earth there is a time for every thing and there is a time to marvel at the Lords ways.
    Just think about it!
    My God who grabbed the moon in his left hand spit the stars into existence pulled the sun from his hair reared back and slung this Universe into existence.
    This same God is my God and he cares for me.
    Now to imagine that God would grab the molten energy that is the sun with his bare hands while palming the moon and stars with his other hand creates an image that testifies to the magnificence that is God but in the spirit of keeping it real all of that was not necessary
    This God is so powerful that he simply spoke the words out of his mouth and
    It was so
    but
    This same God when he got to you and me
    Knelt down on bended knee and reached into the ground pulling forth a mountain of clay
    Took a seat and fashioned with his bare hands a being in HIS OWN IMAGE
    Did you hear me
    IN HIS OWN IMAGE
    Not even the Angels were fashioned like this
    But it doesn’t stop their
    He grasped this perfectly formed image by the head
    Took a deep breath and breathed his very life’s breath into this image
    This image was not rich poor/black or white
    It was the perfect image of a perfect God
    And that same breath of God now lives in
    me
    Tomorrow I shall continue the struggle
    But today I shall Praise his name
    Lift my head and bathe myself in his amazing graces

    Thank You For Sharing

    1 John 3:2 - Beloved, we are God's children now; it does not yet appear what we shall be, but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.

    Words can not tell you how much I enjoy poems like this. Never stop touching the deep side of God...so few take joy in doing it.
