When the wind dies down

Posted by appolus on December 18, 2016

I love it when incessant winds die down
And all around is silence not a sound
And then I feel the sun upon my face
And I am caught up in a warm embrace

When all around me is desolate land
I feel the sun and still I stand
And even though there are dark clouds everywhere
Beyond those clouds I know the blue skies there

The wind it often chills me to the bone
Yet just one ray of sun and I am not alone
One foot in front of another is the way that I must go
I cannot deviate despite the blinding snow

Neither to the left nor to the right
Neither stormy seas nor darkened night
Can keep me from the narrow path I know
Although it may be flooded or blocked with snow

I’ll keep om walking till the very end
Because I know He is around each bend
I shall wade through waters high and mountain snow
As long as He is with me this I know

So if you cannot see your way ahead
Nor fall asleep when you lay down your head
Lift your eyes and see that shaft of light
That warms your face and guides you through the night

Then all the noise shall cease, no not a sound
I love it when incessant winds die down
And then I feel the sun upon my face
And I am caught up in a warm embrace.

The things that shape our lives.

Posted by appolus on December 18, 2016

The things that truly shape us are not the choices that we make. The totality of our lives cannot be found in the choices that we make. If that was true then we would be masters of our own destinies. This is the fodder of all guru’s and self help charlatans and has infiltrated the church. Joel Olsteen and others being masters of this kind of teaching. What really shapes our lives is the circumstances over which we have no control and how we react to them. The disasters, the defeats, the tragedies, the loss, these are what truly shape our lives, those and how we respond to them. None of us would choose disaster, none of us would choose tragedy. Yet, the building blocks of who we are, are forged in the fires of affliction. God has guaranteed that there is no money to be made nor fame to be had in sharing this truth.
