    must be the nature of faith to
    kick in when the ground ends
    and the air begins
    when eyes can't depend on the visual
    and patience seems so critical
    He's way past the political landscape
    in His purpose His plans
    He understands
    while we stand privvy to the surface
    no sense in being nervous
    when it is as it was
    and God does what He does
    bless the breath of a soul
    acknowledging God in perfect control
    the world is His to hold
    to His times and seasons
    to His reasons and ways
    must be the nature of faith
    to obey give thanks and pray
    and even in troublous times
    to give Him praise

    Psalm 131

    (A Song of degrees of David.)
    LORD, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty:
    neither do I exercise myself in great matters,
    or in things too high for me.
    Surely I have behaved and quieted myself,
    as a child that is weaned of his mother:
    my soul is even as a weaned child.
    Let Israel hope in the LORD from henceforth and for ever.

    DSS,
    If it was the apocalypse, could we stop it?
    slow it down? I keep seeing a ledger in
    heaven with meticulous records of each
    and every act that God sees as against Him
    done by each and every individual soul...
    And who can say just how or why or when
    He should would or could deal with them
    according to His judgment? What I do know
    is that He's in absolute control of absolutely
    everything. The best thing for each soul on
    earth is to make their ammends with Him.
    His thoughts and ways are infinitely higher
    than ours.
    btw apocalypse? This ain't it.
