nevermore raven silhoutette
Are you at your place of nevermore?

Is there something that needs to end for you? As the month ends, is there something or someone or someplace you that is your Nevermore?

If there is, might you also remember the people, places, and things that Remain?

…The Remaining Place of Grace…

Your sun will never set again,  and your moon will wane no more; the LORD will be your everlasting light,  and your days of sorrow will end.
Isaiah 60:20

A Word from The Sponsor~October 28

We went through fire and water, but you brought us to a place of abundance. ~Psalm 66:12b

We went through fire and water, but you brought us to a place of abundance. Psalm 66:12b

The verse today~Psalm 66:12b~has a little “b” at the end. It is the “b” that provides the happy ending that makes great movies and great stories.

To get the full story, it is important to read the entire Psalm.

Psalm 66:10-12a: “For you, O God, tested us; You refined us like silver. You brought us into prison and laid burdens on our backs. You let men ride over our heads; we went through fire and water, but You brought us to a place of abundance.”

Os Hillman explained, “God’s economy of abundance often has little to do with material blessing. In God’s economy, abundance is often measured in wisdom and knowledge of Himself. It is then that we are truly blessed. Wisdom cannot be gained through intellectual pursuits. Wisdom comes only through experience. Real wisdom comes from the kinds of experiences that come only through the deepest tests. Lessons of refinement, including prison accompanied by burdens, lead us through the fire and water. This is the territory that must be traveled to reach that place of abundance.”

Stay strong and thankful if you, like me, find yourself in the Remaining Place. The darkest hour is just before daybreak.

God is always greater

The secret of the mystery is: God is always greater. No matter how great we think Him to be, His love is always greater. ~Brennan Manning*

Trying to make things happen my way and on my timetable limits me to my own understanding. Submission to God to make things happen in His way removes all limits. May an abiding sense of His presence within me always take precedence over all of the things that attempt to crowd my mind.
