Unconquerable Force (1)

In the spring of 2006, I became disenchanted with life in general. My hope for the future was lost, and my desire for relationships faded. Even my heart for the Lord seemed faded, at best.

Early one morning in the waking hours of the day, I picked up the scriptures and began to read, not just read, but meditate on the scriptures and the goodness of God. What followed was an awakening. I read Psalm after Psalm, and I started writing down the meditations as I read.

You are about to read the first in a series of these meditations. I call them Meditations of a Common Man because sometimes I'm a simple guy with a simple lifestyle.

I desire that these meditations will draw you closer to God and that as I was drawn close to a loving Father, you too will find a refueled faith in a living God.

Unconquerable Force (taken from Psalm 21:1-2)

Father, I want to celebrate your strength.

To remember how remarkable you are.

That by your strength, all things exist!

Your strength is sure,

It is absolute,

It is an unconquerable force.

There is no weakness in you,

No frailty needing exercise to keep fit.

In you are boldness, valor, and all power.

I see my frailties – the weakness in myself,

Oh, I wish I had the vastness to need no man or God,

But I know a bit of your vastness,

You hold the universe in order,

You keep it in motion.

This is your strength, your capacity.

How to Use Meditations of a Common Man

The sole intent of Meditations of a Common Man is to delight in God and to come away renewed in heart, mind, body, and spirit. As you read, you will find yourself drawn to a word or phrase that I have written or from the scripture. When you come to these moments, rest in them, and take time to ponder. This is the point where you begin to meditate.
