The theme continues with You, Father God. I was just posting the Mean As A Snake photo and caption before this one because it reminded me when of when we can be mean as a snake, but it also keeps Your tender mercy flowing with such beautiful and faithful love. When You gave me a new song in Beggar by Benjamin James, You also blessed me with a very moving Christian movie in Mountain Top. What a delightful surprise to find it was filmed locally, with a few familiar faces.
Beggar is the theme song from that movie. As You are using these words for Gently Mending My Soul, Your movie touches me with the same message of Your tender love towards us when we are broken… how many times it is not us being broken… it just feels like it, but we have no idea how You are working in our lives. And for the good! We need the mountain top moments to become, achieve, complete what blessings You have planned for us, and for those You have blessings waiting for THROUGH US!
Help me to live by Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV:
“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. “
I will share again the video for Beggar because the way I included the lyrics in a conversation with You, I am not sure everyone will understand that, and the message should be heard (or read) at least once.
Oh be kind to the beggar that’s inside of you
And the fiend that you are hiding too
Oh be kind
Feed the poor and lonesome man in your own soul
Love him till he’s been made whole
Feed the poor
Be at peace with the enemy in your own home
Neither you nor he can throw a stone
So be at peace
Be good to the criminal you’ve locked away
That sinful man you learned to hate
Oh be good
When I’m broken to pieces
You make me whole
And through every season
Your mending my soul
Suffer long when you are your own prodigal
For where your home is there your heart is full
So suffer long
And be gentle with the splinters in your mind
In your violence you are blind
So be gentle
