Consistency, madam, is the first of Christian duties.
Part of courage is simple consistency.
“Unless God has raised you up for this very thing, you will be worn out by the opposition of men and devils. But if God be for you, who can be against you? Are all of them together stronger than God? O be not weary of well doing!”
― John Wesley
(worn weary cross, Sligo Abbey / County Sligo, Ireland / Julie Cook / 2015)
As much as we…
plot and plan
inconsistencies will forever be a constant.
For there is nothing in our lives that will remain without glitch, hiccup, accident, or
The only consistent aspect of our lives is our relationship with God
Void of any and all inconsistencies…
He alone is the only one true constant any of us will ever know…
Forever will be…
And so He comes….
He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
1 Colossians 1:15-17
Precious encouraging words…and love the familiar powerful quote by Wesley…
Thank you—as we live in a time of vast and growing inconsistencies, half truths, grave misdeeds and utter self-centeredness—it is comforting knowing that there is indeed One who remains as a constant Light offering direction and hope!!!
A joyous Christmas to you and yours—hugs–Julie
Joyous season of new light and life to you Julie!
