13. Spiritual Land Mine #2b: An Important Post Script


"Hand in Hand" by Greg Olsen
(the text on the left is mine, not Greg's)
As I stated in Land Mine #2, all too often, we turn away from the Lord -- just as he is inclined towards us -- and seek knowledge from others when He is silent and not immediately forthcoming with answers and insights.

The solution is simple: Stop trusting in the arm of flesh.  Quit thinking that solely following some mortal will save your soul.

Sing a new mantra: "Follow the Savior.  He is the way."

Because even when you have turned away from Him -- even when you seek others for answers and perspectives -- His mind and heart never leave you.  

Ever.

  1. His mind and heart never leave us because
    His wish for us
    Is that this life becomes all that we want it to
    Our dreams stay big, our worries stay small
    We never need to carry more than we can hold

    And while we're out there gettin' where we're gettin' to
    He hopes we know somebody loves us
    And wants the same things too
    Yeah, this is His wish

  2. The following hymn says it better than I ever could.
    number 129 Where can I turn For Peace

    1. Where can I turn for peace?
    Where is my solace
    When other sources cease to make me whole?
    When with a wounded heart, anger, or malice,
    I draw myself apart,
    Searching my soul?

    2. Where, when my aching grows,
    Where, when I languish,
    Where, in my need to know, where can I run?
    Where is the quiet hand to calm my anguish?
    Who, who can understand?
    He, only One.

    3. He answers privately,
    Reaches my reaching
    In my Gethsemane, Savior and Friend.
    Gentle the peace he finds for my beseeching.
    Constant he is and kind,
    Love without end.
    Only in the Lord, the Prince of Peace, can we find the answers that we need to return home unto God.
