I found the following printed on a card I ran across while cleaning out my computer bag. No source was listed. It may be someone who reads my ramblings here on the blog (if so, let me know). I thought it was worth posting…
“For the eyes of the Lord rage throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him.” 2 Chronicles 16:9
Are we the kid of people who are lighting up the radar screens of heaven by being fully yielded? As we trust steadily in God, may we live out this blessing: (comment…the writer almost lost me with the “radar screens” comment…but check out the blessing):
MAY GOD BLESS YOU WITH DISCOMFORT at easy answers, half truths and superficial relationships so that you may live deep within your heart.
MAY GOD BLESS YOU WITH ANGER at injustice, oppression and exploitation of people so that you may work for justice, freedom and peace.
MAY GOD BLESS YOU WITH TEARS to shed for those who suffer pain, rejection, hunger and war so that you may reach out your hand to comfort them and to turn their pain into joy.
AND MAY GOD BLESS YOU WITH ENOUGH FOOLISHNESS to believe that you can make a difference in the world so that you can do what others claim cannot be done to bring justice and kindness to all children and the poor.
Peace on earth…
