" ... I see Him walking on the waves, no shore in sight, no success, no goal, just the absolute certainty that it is all right because I see Him walking on the sea. It is the process, not the end, which is glorifying to God. " - "My Utmost for His Highest" by Oswald Chambers.
We are all at sea. We are all vulnerable to waves and apparent chaos. He comes walking toward us and we ask, "Where are we going if we follow you?"
It is, perhaps, the wrong question.
"God's end is to enable me to see that He can walk on the chaos of my life just now."
So, we walk on it with Him ... and the journey is the destination.
"Those who try to do something and fail are infinitely better than those who try to do nothing and succeed."
- Lloyd Jones
"The life that intends to be wholly obedient, wholly submissive, wholly listening, is astonishing in its completeness. Its joys are ravishing, its peace profound, its humility the deepest, its power world-shaking, its love enveloping, its simplicity that of a trusting child." - Thomas Kelly
I serve a God manifest in a man ...
A man with a broken heart.
How can I not follow one who so willingly ...
Wore a broken body
And bore a broken heart?
Psalm 69:22 -
" Reproach has broken my heart, and it cannot be healed; I looked for sympathy, but there was none, for comforters, but I could find no one."
