I awake each morning.. Two choices await me.. The Savior of my soul or that same deceitful apple Eve bit from.. My Savior, radiating in truth and love and life, yet my eyes daily lust after that same old apple He created.. Instead of seeking The Creator, i seek the created.. I keep biting on the same dated apple hoping that maybe, just maybe it will taste different this time around.. Oh how stubborn can i be? how foolish can i be? My fulfillment, why do i think I'll find it in everything else but GOD?! That apple, it has shifted my view! It's fleeting beauty seems to have convinced my heart that it will last a life time, even though the truth in me knows Christ alone is the beginning and the end.. Suffering, pain, disappointment changes not the sovereignty of GOD in life's many uncertain seasons, matter of fact it's the storms and harsh winter nights and unbearable summer days that show me that Jesus is a GOD of all seasons.. In the storm, He carries me like the little baby Moses in His basket of peace.. In winter, His Love and promises hug me like a determined Joseph covered in his colorful rob knowing his father's love is for him is real. In summer, His word and joy and presence cools my burning heart and quenches my thirsty soul teaching me to rest in Him. But that apple, it has caught my eye.. seems like a quick fix to my broken dreams and shattered hopes.. Oh my soul, how could you trust the created over The Creator? Now listen! you stubborn soul? Jesus is God! Creator of the universe.. Yaweh! The beginning and the end.. El-shaddai.. He is All sufficient, All knowing, All powerful, Omni-present.. Everlasting Father, King of kings, My provider, He creates light and makes the darkness.. The rain maker, Joy giver, Faithful friend :) He sends both the good and the bad times, He starts and stops the storm.. Prince of peace, The one who forgives and redeems! He reproofs yet restores, Yes He can break then make me.. The Holy One who died and paid for my rebellion and sin, He is my salvation! The GOD who does not need me yet chooses to love me as if i deserved Him.. Forget not oh my soul that He alone is GOD and there is no other. So, I awake each morning and TWO CHOICES await me.. Will i trust GOD or seek after my selfish desire disguised as a tasty apple? Dear Soul, rest in GOD alone for this world is but vanity.
