You speak words of adoration!\ Sing your favourite phrase,\ yet there is lack, a lack\ in your habit of praise.\ Somewhere in-between\ logic and knowing without\ doubt your belief is real;\ beyond explanation, and\ not because someone\ else told me so.
Today it’s balancing faith\ the quality of belief with\ maintenance of sanity.\ Somewhere in-between\ preservation is a must in\ building a habit of prayer.\ So pray, yet don’t pray\ out of habit, because faith\ is not only words, but\ an action from belief!
High, low, which way to go?\ Forsaking all appears good\ not in control seems scary.\ Somewhere in-between\ gives the lake its lively flow\ to create a more natural\ seasonal lake level and\ improve wetland habitat\ seems the way to go.
(So a replacement weir was\ started, some time ago, to\ give the lake its natural feel.)
As for me a belief and a\ habit of prayer and praise\ is for my soul; for faith\ ‘comes from hearing’.\ Somewhere in-between\ hearing creates and strength-\ ens my spiritual weir,\ to ensure there is balance\ between highs and lows\ for a more natural flow.
Lake Nga-Roto, you helped\ me today, to know there’s a\ place ‘somewhere in-between’\ which the Holy Spirit knows!
