Those Times Alone

time alonethCAOW87MF 

I have been traveling on business 9-10 months per year for the last 6 years. Schedules can be grueling, away from those you love, missing out on the day to day treasures of family life. Maybe like me you have continued to pray for Gods guidance and direction for a change in your situation. Gods purpose for our lives is for our good and His glory. I have come to the realization that sometimes that time alone is Gods way of strengthening our reliance on Him and shaping our character to His purpose. This short poem was placed in my heart to encourage Vilma and I and our familey , I hope you will be encouraged as well.

Those times alone
Drink it in
That sense
That self is lost
And does not matter

It is
The refining of the spirit
A place of treasured discovery

Open the windows of your soul

Let God pour in
That
Which has been waiting
for you

That passion
That was given you
From the beginning

What you do not physically see with the eye
Will show up

Unannounced

With Clarity

May God bless your life as you pursue him! May Gods love and kindness direct you as we are renewed and strengthened as he does a new thing in our lives, the journey to our new life is on foot, led by the Spirit and Gods Word, to serve Him, and others.

    I believe God loves doing that which you don’t or least expect.
