Providence

And when a man works dirt, he cultivates a life needing patience and kneeling to Providence: you can’t drive a seed to grow and you can’t demand a sky to give.

-Ann Voskamp

 

PROVIDENCE definition from dictionary.com :

God, especially when conceived as

omnisciently directing

the universe and the affairs of humankind

with wise benevolence.

1 Corinthians 10: 1-5 Remember our history, friends, and be warned. All our ancestors were led by the providential Cloud and taken miraculously through the Sea. They went through the waters, in a baptism like ours, as Moses led them from enslaving death to salvation life. They all ate and drank identical food and drink, meals provided daily by God. They drank from the Rock, God’s fountain for them that stayed with them wherever they were. And the Rock was Christ. But just experiencing God’s wonder and grace didn’t seem to mean much—most of them were defeated by temptation during the hard times in the desert, and God was not pleased.

 

THE HAND OF GOD

deserves our bow and humbled thanks

seeing that providence is the faith and believing

before the knowing and the seeing

the other definition that caught my eye

gives light to what faith is like

for providence is the foresight

the seeing afar off

it is prudent anticipation

it is faith

the substance of things hoped for

the evidence of things not seen

prudently…… steps

careful and cautious

watchfully waiting

for HOPE to be seen

in full view

and in that moment

MAGNIFY AND GLORIFY

HONOR AND PRAISE

to the ONE who has watched over

and covered, guided and gave

you all provision through Grace!!

WILL WE CHOOSE TO TRUST THE HAND OF GOD

EVEN WHEN WE DO NOT UNDERSTAND, OR EVEN

WHEN WE DO NOT LIKE OUR CIRCUMSTANCES??

when we let frustrations steal joy and we forget to give thanks, we are speaking with our lives …

I Do Not Trust!

Lord, help us trust you more….

Lord, let me trust you more…
