Father, the Author of Life, has been walking me through some stuff, please pardon my lack of a better term.
About a month ago, the Holy Spirit laid on my heart the fact that God is unchanging. No matter if I look from the beginning of time forward, or, from the end of time back, He is the Alpha and Omega. The truth never changes. I am called to do the changing. The submitting. The transforming.
The Bible says:
God is not human, that he should lie,
not a human being, that he should change his mind.
Does he speak and then not act?
Does he promise and not fulfill?
Numbers 23:19 (NIV)
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Hebrews 13:8 (NIV)
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
James 1:17 (NIV)
I felt led to palindromes. Palindromes are words, phrases, numbers etc that are the same forward and backward. Ignoring spaces and punctuation. To say palindromes have consumed my mind is no understatement. Every word my eyes would see I would search for a way to make it work in the reverse.
I titled it SOS because it is a cry for help and a palindrome itself. But I find it interesting to know that SOS was not designed as an acronym. In the days of Morse code it was a message easily relayed as a distress call.
The following poem is a series of palindromes placed in a way to represent life such as has been revealed to me to share.
Sagas deified sagas.
Must sell at tallest sum.
Race fast safe car.
I’m aloof; fool am I!
Evil Is as selfless as I live.
We panic in a pew.
Is it I? Abba it is I!
Keep eye on tenet? No eye peek!
Live on no evil.
Won’t lovers revolt now?
Raw time Abba, emit war.
Aim on Reviver no MIA.
Drown I in word.
Redder was I : I saw redder.
Rail a liar.
Now Sir, a war is won.
Radar madam radar.
Drawer devoved reward!
Drawn, I sit, serene rest is inward.
Now idle. He beheld. I won.
God revealed to me that in this life, those that have come before or those that are yet to come have similar journeys. The letters are the same. The timing, the pauses, the tenses and the circumstances vary. I change. But God never does.
My prayer is that those reading would come to know this intimately or be affirmed in its reading.
To God be the glory!
