The Reverse Blessing

Soul Snack 79/12 ... The Reverse Blessing#

May all your expectations be frustrated,

May all your plans be thwarted,

May all your desires be withered into nothingness,

that you may experience the powerlessness and poverty of a child and sing and dance in the compassion of God - who is Father, Son and Spirit. AMEN#

My judgements are pale next to Heaven's judgements, my thoughts are a mere pool lost in an ocean of infinite wisdom and my desires are as failing as Heaven's are perfect.

Because the spiritual is still sovereign over the physical I am thankful that I did not receive as I have asked and that I have lost for gain.

How can I repay the Lord for all His goodness to me? (Ps 116:12)
