THE SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME 

by S.C.MITCHELL. 
SEPTEMBER 2018

""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

Reflection and hindsight - one in the past - and 
One that yet could be - but neither in the present - 
Where we live - in true reality - the first looks back into
The memories of yesterday - where good and bad may blur -
And merge - revealed - co-joined in their own way - but with
Hindsight - we may wonder how things might have been -
If only we had known - would we have walked a 
Different path - and thereby changed the past -
And the shape of things to come .

But -

We cannot live in past regrets - or waste our lives 
On things we cannot change - but we must take each
Moment as it comes - and leave the rest in God's own hands -
No safer place - no better way - within the confines of His plans -
And His designs - of love and peace - a place of refuge from 
The storms - that toss us back and forth - a place where 
Even wars and desolations cease .

Yes -

No better place indeed - a Haven and a Home -

So - on that note -

May all our choices be towards the - Only One -

Who shapes our lives - and leads us on -

To better things to come . 

"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""


From my own experience , there have been times when
I have questioned my actions to the extent that maybe
things could have been so different if I had obeyed the 
voice of God , and trusted that He knew best for my life .

How different  my life may have turned out , and how
wonderful it may have been  if I had trusted Him more .
But, I have learned that it is pointless living in the past 
with all its regrets . So I take one day at a time , and try
to do my best , and I believe that is all God asks of His 
children .

So be encouraged today , and thank the Lord that He has 
got your life in His hands as He leads you forward into
the shape of things to come .. 

Many blessings to you 
In Jesus' name
