that T in the road

bumbling through life

Quite

Unaware

I encounter a

T in the road

What to make of this T?

An impasse? The end of my road?

A signal I should QUIT?

Or does the T signal, not a Termination, but a Transition?

As I consider my options something Emerges, standing between me and that fateful T

Exaltation of the King who rules my journey

Examination of my heart as part of my journey

Exploration of the King’s leading for the next stage of the journey

In fact, I discover the E is not just one thing, but many things

Yet it is not Everything

No, that is the Exclusive domain of my King

Him alone in that place between me and the T

Embracing Him as my Everything Transforms my journey

opening new options as I stand there before that great T in my road

there, with Him the T no longer demands I QUIT, but invites me to become QUIET

for, says my King, “in Quietness and in Trust is your strength” for this journey

Praying the Promises of God

When we pray back to God His own promises given us in the Bible, Spurgeon said, we are “holding God to his word.”

He further says, “My brother, if you have a divine promise, you need not plead it with an ‘if’ in it; you may plead with a certainty. If for the mercy which you are now asking, you have God’s solemnly pledged word, there will scarce be any room for the caution about submission to his will. You know his will: that will is the promise; plead it. Do not give him rest until he fulfil it. He meant to fulfil it, or else he would not have given it … when he speaks, he speaks because he means to act.” –C.H. Spurgeon (Order and Argument in Prayer, July 15, 1886)
