Authenticity of Grace
A cold morning witnessing the increasing warmth of a rising sun; a drying stream receiving the intensifying drops of a downpour; a dying man holding on to life with a strong will footed within an illuminated heart. There is a Mighty Hand that rules in the affairs of men and a small still voice that continuously instructs at every teachable moment. The glory of the latter days and the years ahead are totally veiled to the reprobate mind, but like a light that shines brighter and brighter unto the perfect day, the secret things of Graceful Divinity are glaring to the perceptive hearts of those who fear the Lord.
I stood and from afar, I saw an ever Flowing Fountain that is bound not to go dry for all eternity. I drew nigh and drank of the waters thereat. I thought for once my thirst would be quenched and I will have no need to purge myself of weariness again, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. When each passing day life’s propositions and dispositions weighed me down, I became desperate for the Flowing Fountain and I knew I was lost without my found Source of Strength. Over time and as the years went by, I have learnt one thing and two things had kept me on the highways of following peace embodied in holiness, there is a fountain whose streams make glad the choice city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High; and whoever believes in this Cascade of Divinity out of his belly, shall flow rivers of living water.
All the roads I had taken led to my regret, but one broken road led me to True Providence. In my darkest hours of struggling with what seemed like a vicious cycle of sorrow and pain, I learnt a New Song. I have tarried on my knees and waited in reverence, obeisance and obedience without getting answers to the mind-boggling questions in my heart; in all, I have grown to see the beautiful undulating pictures of a promised future through the eyes of faith. I have had disappointed promised commitments in the best of friendships and relationships; I have witnessed colossal failures from prospective opportunities and many a time, my outstretched hand of camaraderie had been made to retreat owing to reservations not utterly clear to me; but through it all, I’ve understood what it takes to love unconditionally. I became wholly equipped to accept people for what and who they are…today, I am what I am by the grace of the Lord and His grace to me was not without effect.
