When faced with uncertainty,
I pray to have the patience, endurance, and vigour to stay in
that place of tension, and the courage to be alone.
I may be facing
the prospect of humiliating defeat, but I only continue
to work for just victory and victory alone!
The will of God prevails—In this two great contests in my life
each of which claims to act in accordance with
the will of God.
Both may be, and one must be wrong.
God can not be for, and
against the same thing at the same time.
In my present life, it is quite possible
that God’s purpose is something different from
the purpose of either of these two parties.
His purpose, I am
almost ready to say this is probably true—that
God wills this contest, and wills that it shall not end yet.
By His mere quiet power, on these two contestants, He could
save or allow cancer to destroy my life.
Yet the contest began—And having begun
He could give the final victory to either side
any day—Yet the contest proceeds—
Until the day it is really over,and then there will be eternal rest and bliss for my sick body and my troubled soul.
Just some random thoughts that came to my mind….
