God of Eons

Almighty God, as You knew the Gunnison river would dig a mighty canyon over eons, and the designs of the walls of the canyon would be a splendor to behold, just so, You have a design and a plan for each of your children's lives. Sometimes we have difficult challenges and painful times to go through, but You are right there to guide us. After many years we too develop grandeur and beauty in who we become as Your plan is carried out in us.

Paul’s attitude towards trials is seen in the book of 2 Corinthians. He repeatedly asked You to remove a thorn in the flesh, but when You answered him that

  "But He said to me, My grace (My favor and loving-kindness and mercy) is enough for you [sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear the trouble manfully]; for My strength and power are made perfect (fulfilled and completed) and show themselves most effective in [your] weakness. Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ (the Messiah) may rest (yes, may pitch a tent over and dwell) upon me!" 2 Corinthians 12:9

he changed his mind and chose to glory in weaknesses and infirmities, which allowed Christ power and strength to enter into his soul. Thus his work was done under the mastery of Jesus not under his human capability.






This is a lesson for me, Father.
I thought it was for another, but it was for me too. I am not glorying in my aging joints of pain and sore muscles  from yesterday’s horseback riding adventure.

It was embarrassing to need help mounting and dismounting a very tall horse as my legs had lost some flexibility over the years.
But I rode on a horse called Cinnamon and loved the comraderie of joining the grandkids on a great adventure. Perhaps watching me require help, and suffering pains from the choice, will become a strength in their memories.

You Lord work Your plans not over minutes or days or months or years, but over eons. My life may help people long after I leave this earth. Lord, I choose to follow You in obedience, that Your power and plans shall be carried out through my life always.
