Landscape

Landscape.Phil1.6.mmitm.mjb

And I am sure that God, who began the good work within you, will continue His work until it is finally finished on that day when Christ Jesus comes back again. Philippians 1:6 NLT

Life’s like a landscape and God has the brush,
His work is in progress, He’s not in a rush.
Each stroke has a purpose, and nothing’s by chance,
To learn of His wisdom takes more than a glance.

Notice the sunbeams that shine on the dew,
The eyes of your faith bring them right into view.
Look at the pathway that turns by the hill,
Its course will reveal what is next in His will.

The bird in the nest with its mouth opened wide,
Is just a reminder that God will provide.
Now look at the sheep in the meadow so green,
The waters nearby are both calm and serene.

The eagle above that soars o’er the gale,
Is God’s way of saying, “My strength will not fail.”
The dark clouds in the sky will soon bring the rain,
That pours forth His blessings, again and again.

The parts of the picture which now seem unclear,
Will take on new meaning with each passing year;
Yes, God is still working in His perfect way,
As He paints the landscape of your life each day.

    The verse that you wrote which begins with “Above you are the everlasting arms” etc. is beautiful. I have sent it on to my sister-in-law who right now is going through the pain of the tragic loss of her dear son, Daryl.
