For Such a Time As This

Until the sun sets on this life and You usher us into the next we are Yours to do with as You will as You did with Your Son Jesus, for You Yourself have put us here for such a time as this… for Your glory. We bow to You. In Jesus name, Amen

a poem by Elizabeth Burgard Fulgaro (c) 2012

For such a time as this, our Lord put you in this world

To be where He needs you to be, to have the effect He desires you to have

For such a time as this, He revealed Himself to you

That your joy might be complete and His will fulfilled

For such a time as this, yes, for such a time as this

 

For such a time as this, His Spirit is in our midst

So that when we seek His face, He is found and His Light shines through us.

For such a time as this, as the moon reflects the sun

He works through us to show His way, not by our power, but by His

When we make the choice to submit and obey, for such a time as this

 

For such a time as this, He uses our lives to produce the food

Real fruit of His Spirit which is clearly seen and sweet to eat to nurture His harvest yet to come

For such a time as this, we become like Sonflowers as we adore the Son

And within our center He produces a harvest to feed those dying without Him

That before their generation passes away they might know Him & find life, indeed for such a time as this

 

For such a time as this, we are His harvest to feed the next ones

Through lives which are no longer ours, but His, the love of God reigns and rules

For such a time as this, His Spirit will lead us every step, and the enemy will be conquered (what was meant for evil used by Him for good)

By Him hope will return, joy and peace will flow like a river, and lives will be redeemed

For such a time as this, for such a time as this

 

Every generation passes away, like a wildflower – just a breath and we are gone.

Therefore the time is now, this moment counts; regardless of where we are He has good purpose,

To be His light where all seems dark, to bring a hint of His fragrance standing as a testimony for His truth, not by our might but by His Spirit

The world needs to know we are not destined for death and despair here but hope, purpose & life in Him

For eternity, yes, but also for such a time as this.

 

For now we are destined to be, for now we are destined to serve

For now He desires to use us for good though we are far from perfect

Because He loves us from here to eternity and does not treat us as our sins deserve

For now He turns darkness to light before us, lighting His way that we might lead those behind

By His Spirit for His glory for His kingdom come and His will to be done for such a time as this, for such a time as this.

I am a God-seeker--a Jesus-worshipper--a Holy Spirit follower. I create songs, devotions, prayers, books and Bible studies to give words with which to get to know God more. For you. Its for one-on-One encounter unto transformed, transcendent living. This is not my vocation. I am not professional. I am a real, ordinary person just looking to do what God put me here to do. (You have a unique purpose too.) So I am called to the work. It is not my income source, but my gift to those who find it blessing. Eagles Nest Foundation sponsors all projects for you. The result: pure, clean spiritual nutrition to feed that deep insatiable spiritual hunger which eventually overtakes each of us and galvanizes you to the life God has for you. This life is purposeful. Exceptional. You--yes, you--are called to something greater and more satisfying in His service. So it is hoped you'll try this spiritually dense nutrition and find it to be a personal blessing. However, the goodness of God-following doesn't stop there. He uses those who seek Him to be His love and care (justice, mercy, advocate, kindness) very tangibly in the lives of those around you. Not by your power but by His. His ideas. God ideas. Not just good ideas. To be part of changing the world, if you will let Him. You learn to just follow where He leads. That if you listen, He will teach you to hear His voice and then when you obey His inner promptings you will become His incredible hands and feet in this hard world. These materials will help! They will help you aim your life towards God in a way you never look back. You will not be the same. He will become the River in your desert spaces and you will become a conduit of this same River of refreshing, replenishing Water of Life to others. Find a prayer. Pick a blog post. Read a book. Be led deeper into the Bible. Select a song which resonates and use it and use it again to go close and ever closer to the God who longs to draw you near. Oh, and don't be tempted to think I'm a crazy over-spiritualized loony...My background is financial planning and counseling. Almost 40 years of it. To choose to believe in God is not to leave practicality and reason behind, but to learn that there is that which goes beyond it and includes it, unto true life fulfillment beyond all your dreams for the one who keeps seeking Him. I am a third generation Californian. I am a person to whom family means everything. The only priority higher is God. The foothills of the Sierra Nevada are my home. It is here the 1849-1856 Gold Rush is still glorified. Easy money? Actually only for the few. Even though I was raised in the Church, it took me ten years of doubting God even existed to realize that without Him, no matter how much of this life's "stuff" is accumulated, I actually have nothing. To come to know that all those who chased after gold are dead and all those who still chase stuff will be dead. That's when I became a God-seeker. Looking for that more. And Eureka! (This is California's state slogan and means I found it.) I found God...or rather, I discovered He was there and had been there waiting for me to look for Him the whole time. May you discover more of Him for you, greater flourishing life and greater flourishing for all in the world as well. God bless you! ~Elizabeth
