Day 18: Time to Reflect

heartbeatJust behind the beating of our hearts
Our lovely spirits reside
Our unspoken emotions dwell
Our fettered passions rest silently
Waiting to be aroused.

Behind the beating of our hearts,
Our undreamt dreams still sleep,
Our love, though real, is illusive
Our impassioned spirits boil quietly,
Anxious to be discovered.

Behind the beating of our hearts,
The canvases of our lives lay bare
Longing to be decorated,
With the pictures of spirited living.
Hungry, our souls lay waiting

To be fed
To be nurtured
To be valued

Still our hearts are beating
And behind the beating of our hearts
Our lovely spirits reside,
Our true individuality sleep,
Our compelling charisma throb,
In silent rhythm,
Wanting to synchronize with
The beating of our hearts.

Thank you once again for taking the journey with me. I never knew design had so much to teach us about our very own Designer. God is a special wonder! God is full of surprises; look what He has taught us these past few days. Have you not found some fortunes? I certainly have. Simple things make BIG fortunes. Treasure them.

Remember, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And He chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful. God chose things despised by the world, things counted as nothing at all, and used them to bring to nothing what the world considers important. As a result, no one can ever boast in the presence of God. (I Corinthians 1: 26-29, NLT)

Take some time to today and think how you can increase your faith and find balance in God.  Plan for the patterns you want to make in your life. Think about the gifts God has given you, and ask Him to teach you how to use them for His glory. From now on, live out your life with contrasts, as you think of the cross. Let God nourish your mind as you seek Him for wisdom today.

Meditation: 1 Corinthians 1
