look around
and see the the wonder--
mountains and minnows
and aspen and wild rose.

look up
and see magnificence--
sunrise and sunset;
sun, moon,
and infinite galaxies.

look within
and see the miracle--
growth and perseverance,
sacrifices of praise
and hope
and impossible love.

and see
the fingerprints of God.

You Will Be Hated… (Are you?)

sometimes our persecution comes from within “the church”.

from the wolves in sheep’s clothing.

from the judas iscariot.

from the legalists.

just like jesus and paul.

one fears for the persecutors.

eternity is near.

(thanks for the food for thought, brother.)
