Monotony
Learning to be faithful

I’ve been thinking about it
and I really must say that my life
is monotonous from day to day.
Everyday doing the very same things
waiting and wishing for spiritual gains
within my heart to grow,
and in my life to show;
after all, God is miraculous and
Powerful, He’s a mountain moving
God, things just ought to happen
when He is involved. So why am I here
just doing the plod of a day to day
routine; silently questioning,
“Where is God?”

Yet, I think of the things that God
does as He holds all things together,
and I understand there are many things
that I take as fact of matter, such as
my heart that beats and the breaths
that I breathe, and grass that is there,
and so are the trees,
the sun that rises and sets
at a scheduled time,
ending the night and beginning the day,
and it has always happened
exactly that way.


The stars are hanging there in the sky
exactly in their place,
never moving at all, not by even a trace.
The wind and water, God controls,
while being aware of every prayer
that ascends to Him from every soul.
He’s been doing all that He does
since before to this earth I came,
and long,long after I’m gone,
He’ll continue to do the same
things. I suppose that I have to
consider the indisputable truth
that I see, routine is not dull
to God, it just seems dull to me.

There is a deeper truth that we
must realize while living out our routine
day to day lives, routine is acceptable
and is right, in God’s eyes.
“So whatever your hand finds to do,
do it with all your might!”
“For what does God require of you
but to walk humbly with Him,
to love mercy, and to do
justly in His sight?”
These are things that I can do as I live
day to day, knowing that my faithful plod
is very acceptable to my Seeing God.

And while in the life of every one
occasional wonders occur when
we can say emphatically,
“Oh yes, God was here!” Most of our life
is blandly routine, but that in itself is
miraculous, although it is not the main thing.
The primary thing required of our life
is to actively worship our God, and to be
very careful not to engage in strife;
to do our work and to be applied,
to be merciful to all of those who
are at our side, to do justly
in all that we do and say
and then, when to Heaven we come
we will hear Jesus say,
“Welcome home, faithful one.”

P.S.

Oh yes, there are miracles to be done
and messages to be told,
there are healings that will come
and salvation to many souls;
and still, these are the things that are done
by our God through the ones who walk
faithfully with Him, in the monotonously
Routine Times.
