Grace for Each Moment

J. I. Packer has a very helpful section in his book, Knowing God on common pitfalls when it comes to seeking God’s guidance in one’s life.  If you have never read this book, I highly commend it to you.  It is truly a classic – good for the soul.  It will enlarge both your head and your heart for God in ways that most books written by mortals can’t and won’t (especially the likes of books being written in our day and age).  So, get a copy of Knowing God at your earliest convenience and be blessed as you read it with your head and heart.

Here is the bit on common pitfalls in seeking God’s guidance from J.I. Packer:

From Holiday with Joy

Time of silence is now over and I have to get back to work right away.

I thank God for the great holiday I had.  For once this year, I had time to forget all the hurdles and challenges that come with work.  There was ample time to be there for the family more than before as my wife and I celebrated our second wedding anniversary. We traveled around visiting places, friends and relatives. It was indeed time of refreshing.

I had also time to reflect on the journey I have traveled so far and also focus on the future. The joy from the Lord that comes with knowing that you are traveling on his appointed way assured me that I am not alone in His vineyard. He is ever with me.

As I thought about the future dream of serving Him further, my long-time forgotten hobby of poetry, suddenly, sprout up.  For first time in five years, I wrote this poem:

 

THE SWEET DREAM

The dream is sweet

I can’t wait for it

Sowing the seeds in pain

Knowing sweet fruits I will gain

 

Realistic about it I have to be

But from a far I can see

Many rivers are there to cross

For it can’t be realized without a cost

 

It will never be easy that I know

But by His grace I will still sow

His invisible hand will guide

The appointed doors will open wide

All in all, it was a great and refreshing vacation. Glory be to God who supplies everything we need in Christ Jesus. AMEN!
