Nothing can pull us away… #devotion


stream
 Oh the days are hard
the path is rocky
and my feet are weary
where can I go to find sleep?
Is there any protection
from the sky that is falling
trying to enter the reason
of my mind?
“Nothing can preserve you except…”
you hear this over and over
“just give in
give up…”
the silent tormentor
has gained a voice
in my head
and I am raw with fear
“Give In
We can help…”
But what are they offering?
More importantly what are they taking?
God’s love doesn’t evoke fear –
it’s result is peace
God’s love doesn’t evoke anger or hatred –
it causes us to love those who hate us
God’s love does not require us to destroy ourselves or others
IT is a trickling (healing) stream in the midst of the darkest night

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?…

Neither height nor depth, nor any other created things, will be able to separate us from the Love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”   ~Romans 8:35 and 39

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we have an exciting project. We are developing elementary curriculum for Ugandan children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. Along with the curriculum, we hope to develop simple fictions about Uganda for the children to read at school. Trust me books are in short supply. We will use our trusted story tellers: a butterfly and a lion to make the stories come alive. Stay tuned as Bethany and Me put pen to paper. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2012 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the (quiet) originator of the idea and co-producer of One Stop Poetry. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. Hard to hold onto faith in hard times – but you do it beautifully. Yes, the God we know is a loving one. I dont understand how extremists can murder in the name of their God and think they are right. Boggles the mind.

  2. Killing in the name of or because of insisting on God being one’s version of God has happened since Cain and Able. All because we humans seem to need God to exist in a box we create in our minds. And not all killing is about God. This very moving piece you have written in on the 52 anniversary of the assassination of President Kennedy.

"There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" - George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their tabloid news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting - this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell
