“And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he who sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given to him. He went forth conquering.” Revelation 6:2
Strange passage choice? Not when one might argue in the meaning of revelation – a show, a change, a greatness and the destruction of the tainted world. Revelation is also one of my favourite books, both in poetic description, and for the fear it may well provoke. The Apocalypse will one day come, and we do not want to find ourselves on the side of sin.
When I fell in love with another human, I cried myself to sleep almost every night. I hated the feeling that my heart was on load – when it should have been mine to snatch back. It was wrong, so so wrong. But, I tried. I extended my hands, but the more I struggled, the further the bindweed attached.
When I found I loved God, I rejoiced. Yes, the emptiness remained, but, this time, I knew I had control of my sentiment. He frustrated me more than any mortal, but His power extends beyond them all.
I guess it’s all about waiting and trusting now.
For the work of the LORD is right; and all of his works are done in truth. Psalms 33:4
