The End

"All the foundations of the earth are out of course." (Ps. 82.5)

Man knows not how to build a society, a world.
     Disorder always seems to be advancing,
         and man never abandons that which has failed -
              it is merely recycled in another guise,
                   with the promise that this time the result will be different.

Sadly, as goes the world so goes the church.
We hear voices which prophesy of a wonderful future
where all our hopes and dreams will be satisfied to overflowing.

We seek vainly for voices which authoritatively proclaim 
     the grace of God for today,
          the ministration of the Life of God today.

We hear that Fullness, like freedom, is "just around the corner,"
     but the corner never gets closer.
And lives continue without finding the promise fulfilled.

Well, tomorrow will be what it will be -
     but God abides unchanging today.
Today is the day to hear His voice,
     to find His portion.
Today is the day for our cups to overflow.

Today God says to each of us,
"Ye shall seek Me, and find Me." (Jer.29.13)

The only condition attached is, that the seeking be with all our hearts.
The only question is, can we do this?

Can we tear our hearts away from all else,
     the bad and the good, 
          and seek God alone 
               to find the fullness of Life in Him alone.

                         He calls ... He waits.


  1. Tomorrow is today. 2 Corinthians 6:2 "Now is the time of God's favor, today is the day of salvation."
