Humbled, but unashamed.
What is wonderful
Invaluable in this life I live
Boundaried and buffeted by grace
Is that correction, His is gentle.
Spiritual redirection that’s simply an invitation and recognition of harsh thinking or word,
It is gradual and a gift without expectation of my equal exchange.
A gift not wrapped in bright red paper colored shame.
I heard once, the only verses or sermon we might need to perhaps live with one another in the whole world in His hands more mercifully would be these:
2 And he opened his mouth and taught them, saying:
3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
5 “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
6 “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
7 “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.
8 “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
9 “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.
10 “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 “Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.
12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. – Matthew 5:2-12
Humbled, gently stirred towards correction but, unashamed.
My happy way of life.
Noticing the stirring in my soul, preparing my new season
