We need "uncluttered time and space
in which we can distance ourselves
from our own activities
enough to see what God is doing."
Keeping the rhythm of
work and rest within
God's time is necessary,
faithful and wise.
I hear the disclaimer over and over
among our harried lives--
too busy, too much, too little margin.
We need to remember that God will STILL
work in the margins of our lives.
He prefers first fruits, and lifted offerings.
But, He still delights when His children
come as beggars
with little to offer and sit by the wayside.
His powerful presence will take
our meager offerings
and turn them into banquets that feed our soul.
How blessed that we have a heavenly Father,
who meets us right where we are-
strung out and strung along.
He takes frazzled, piece-meal connections
and still works Miracles.
And maybe from that point of view-
we can SEE what He is doing.
