“To be a blessed child of God is the highest calling. The steps of one called by God print love marks in the earth. They fragrance the air with beauty and holiness. They radiate heaven’s peace. They frustrate the evil designs of Satan.
They are hard to track, for they blow like the wind, carried by the Holy Spirit’s breath. They prefer silence to the world’s glamour. They are hidden away from the eyes of men praying down great gifts and favors from heaven. Life seems so very long for them, for they are pilgrims on a journey. They follow obediently the voice they cannot see and rejoice to do so. They seek an invisible reality, unseen by mortal men. Their tastes have changed to heavenly tastes. The earth has lost its luster.
They follow a path unknown to them, meekly accepting all they encounter as the blessed will of God. They are strong in spirit, rising above tribulations and great trials. Their eyes are fixed on God alone, as they walk their unique path in silence. They have tasted the goodness of the Lord. Nothing on earth allures them anymore.
These souls of holiness are protecting the world from God’s wrath at the devastating sinfulness that corrupts the land. They are the leaven that keeps the world in existence.
This drama of life, God’s will of intention, will be played out until the final day of reckoning. Then the heavens will be displayed in great majesty for all to see. The righteous shall rejoice in that day. The wicked shall tremble and fear. The day of the Lord shall come as a thief in the night. Prepare yourselves, O world of men!”
