I watched a movie this week on YouTube, and it reminded me to give thanks for those in the old testament who made a way for those in the new testament who made a way for us today. I thank God for their sacrifices and their obedience to Him.
This movie reminded me that we are in the wilderness, outside the garden. But we (mankind) all have the garden in us, and we are navigating our way back home, back to the garden where there was need of nothing, where we walked with God, and we trusted him completely.
In the movie was a piece spoken by the character Miriam (as a child) to God.
The garden is in us all
So, let us build an altar and sing
Let us tell stories and admire the stars
Let us dream of those we love and those we have lost
We will rise by light and face the wilderness once more
We find that the river flows slowly for many years
And one day has left a canyon
The rock cannot withstand the mysterious deep and gives itself away
Until it is transformed into something beautiful and majestic
You are the river, and I the stone have been trying to withstand this flood
We die a thousand times in this wilderness
But you give us strength to overcome
Here you are my creator
Here you are my maker
You are not only merciful, you are mercy
You are not only loving, you are love
You are not only beautiful, you are beauty
Take us back to the place we started, near you
You paid our price, lead us to the garden
Let us trust you again
From the Movie “The Book of Genesis” by Craig Cunningham
