2018 FEB 27 – Romans 1:20
For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. (ESV)
Today, I bounce back to Romans as I like the reference to the invisible attributes. Like those things, you can not see but feel. They have been around since our beginning and flows through us and will be passed on until the end of time.
Yesterday, I featured Old Before Your Time by Ray LaMontagne And The Pariah Dogs. Today, I would like to start from the beginning of that song as it seeped into my soul.
When I was a younger man lookin’ for my pot of gold
Everywhere I turned the doors were closin’
It took every ounce of faith I had to keep on keepin’ on
And still I felt like I was only losin’
I refused then like I do now to let anybody tie me down
And I lost a few good friends along the way
I was raised up poor and I wanted more
And maybe I’m a little too proud
In lookin’ back I see a kid who was just
Afraid, hungry and old before his time
This song has me reflecting on when I was younger and thought I knew it all. Like the song verse, I was afraid and there is no doubt I lost some good friends. Ultimately, I just have to lean on that eternal power and divine nature that has been around since the creation of the world to pull me through.
Tomorrow, I may continue with the song if the Spirit leads me there.
