The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
“Life is not a continuum of pleasant choices, but of inevitable problems that call for strength, determination, and hard work”
(Victorian Plant stand / Julie Cook / 2014)
Very much like a cycle.
Over and over.
Again and again and again.
Very much like the seasons.
One following always after the other.
Again and again.
Over and over.
Year after year.
Very much like life.
Yet. . .
In life, there is always a beginning,
as in birth.
And following, there is always an end,
as in death.
And eventually an end.
End of sentence.
We know that God is more like the circle. . .
for God is a continuum.
as in. . .
He shall ever be.
As in forever.
As in forever was.
As in forever is.
As in forever will be.
Not so however for our earth.
For the earth, and all that is in it,
shall pass away.
Because for the Earth,
there indeed was a beginning.
And therefore there will certainly be an end.
As in. . .
We know that with God there is no end.
Because with God there was never a beginning–
because He always was.
And therefore if there was no beginning,
there can be no end.
As in the perfect continuum.
He, in turn, offers us a place in the continuum.
A place with Him.
As in, the adopted children of Grace.
Who may join their Heavenly Father.
But as a loving Father,
He offers a free choice . . .
as in it’s over and simply no more
Heavenly Life. . .
as in eternity
as in forever and ever and ever
As in a perfect continuum
We are given a beautiful hope – but the choice is ours. This is such a gentle and inspiring poem to our Lord. Thank you.
