This U-Tube Song is inspirational, powerful and truthful.
Sometimes it takes a mountain.
Sometimes a troubled sea.
Sometimes it takes a desert, to get a hold of me.
YOUR LOVE is so much stronger than whatever faces me.
Saviour Lord, I need to TRUST YOU and BELIEVE.
What about the small daily irritations that rush in and overbalance us?
- The washing machine floods the floor and the broken pipe
- with a wrenching groan smashes the floor tiles. The phone rings. Your small son comes in. ‘Mummy I need to go toilet NOW’.
The time it takes to switch off the tap means the phone has stopped and Jimmy misses the toilet bowl by only a couple of inches, but the toilet will need to be thoroughly cleansed not just the seat but all over the outside and inside of the bowl.
Husband walks in and makes the quiet confident statement. ‘It looks very wet in here, love. Perhaps there is a leak somewhere.’ Maybe laughter later.
But think on this…….
- Nasty words!
- Being misunderstood.
- Challenged in our faith or beliefs in an argumentative manner.
Irritations come in many shapes and forms maybe magnified in our thinking.
Can ALL of life’s Minor sins, irritations and mistakes be redeemed?
I believe they can. SURRENDER it ALL to HIM and leave it at the CROSS.
Remember it takes only a small irritation to create a pearl inside an oyster shell! Keep that thought in mind
Lord help us to surrender our minor irritations as well as facing all the bigger mountains and troubled seas of life. Give us the same courage and faith to believe that You can make inside us as YOU work on sanctification through Your Holy Spirit pearls fit for the KINGDOM OF God in the image of Christ the Pearl of Great Price.
Matthew 13:45-46 Parable of the Pearl
Christ’s illustration on the great value of THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN
He loves us and in His EYES our value is incalculable.
