Instead

white rose bw ch sepia IMG_4667

Seek silence in the midst of the tumult,

seek solitude in the masses,

light in the midst of darkness;

find forgetfulness in injury,

victory in the midst of despondence,

courage in the midst of alarm,

resistance in the midst of temptation,

and peace in the midst of war.

-Miguel de Molinos (The Spiritual Guide, 1675)

 

Faith is not blind. Faith is not oblivious. Faith is not in denial.

Faith simply refuses to stop too soon.

Faith keeps looking until it sees what God wants to do instead.

 

Even While Others Sleep

Make music and sing God’s praises with the rhythm of drums!

For he enjoys his faithful lovers.
He adorns the humble with his beauty
and he loves to give them the victory.

His godly lovers triumph in the glory of God,
and their joyful praises will rise even while others sleep.

God’s high and holy praises fill their mouths,
for their shouted praises are their weapons of war!

(Psalm 149:3-8 TPT)
