ATB12 For These Times

As these days blend together, one into the other, it would seem perhaps to the naked eye that all is the same.  And yet beneath the surface lies an ever growing cauldron of change.  Change that bespeaks an under current of uncertainty that foreshadows the unknown of tomorrow.

For seemly what we consider the norm on a daily basis is now the exception rather than the rule. Up it seems is looked at as down; stop is now a signal for go; right is now decried as wrong, and wrong proclaimed as right.

Surely for times such as these, we find ourselves in search of answers to what would appear to be mounting questions as to what to do and where to turn as life challenges themselves grow exponentially.  And yet as a majority wrestles with the specter of an unknown tomorrow, those who are by definition “peculiar”  remain firmly rooted, not in a maybe, but in an absolute in knowing not in part but knowing in full as to who holds tomorrow in the palm of his hand.

For as Christians we are called to stand as the exception rather than the rule as to the prevailing mindset of concern.  For even in the midst of a changing time, when all around us would  seem to be in a state of  flux , still we remain grounded in that “Blessed Assurance.”  Knowing that we know that we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

As those who have been called and by definition are “peculiar” may we continue to be steadfast in our faith, resolute in our stand and unmovable in our belief  in God’s promise to those whom he loves.

To God be the glory……

About dupree73

I was raised and grew up in the United Methodist Church. While I do proudly embrace my background and personal history within the United Methodist Church, I do feel that ultimately what is important is not the denomination that you are a part of. What matters most is the relationship that you have with the Lord. Part and parcel to any relationship is the level of commitment that one makes to it. With any and all relationships they are going to take time to grow. Through the years if I were to describe my relationship with the Lord using one word it would be “transformation.” Continuing to grow daily in my walk with the Lord, and as well continue to display the fruits of his spirit daily is for me what my life is all about. Frankly for these times, my attitude and belief is that the world is looking at those who are Christians to see if in fact their talk does indeed match their walk. As for me, my goal is to on a daily basis to be that individual who by virtue of their talk and their walk is by nature “peculiar.” If then by chance this way of living does indeed glorify the Lord, then my life indeed is destined to make a difference.
