I would have stayed up with you all night,
had i known how to save a life.
but it’s been a long time since i’ve been a witness to His working in that way i spoke of. and i had forgotten all about it until yesterday when He gave me those words.
and i began to grow weary and i began to ask all the questions.
and i began to loose sight of the only Goal worth having; which is to know Him deeper, wider, more.
and i began to lose heart.
There are those for whom prayer is all i’ve got left. and apparently if i don’t believe something is working, than i fail to see it’s value. which reveals to me that prayer had become merely a means to an end. and it reveals how little i really know.
i wasn’t there when earth’s foundation was laid. and i don’t know how to save a life. but there is One who knows the number of hairs on my head and His Eye is on the sparrow.
Then Job replied to the LORD:
“i know that You can do all things;
no plan of Yours can be thwarted.
You asked, ‘Who is this that obscures My counsel without knowledge?’
Surely i spoke of things i did not understand,
things too wonderful for me to know.
You said, ‘Listen now, and I will speak;
I will question you, and you shall answer me.
My ears had heard of You
but now my eyes have seen You.
Therefore i repent in dust and ashes.
