In the midst of a week of sadness – seeking to come to terms with the sudden loss of my lovely sister – I have been so thankful for a God Who is truly present with me – Who cares for me and cares about what happens in my life.
He is the One that I can run too – Who holds me – covers me – Who ‘hides me in the depths of His love – and covers me with His hand’
At times like this I find words from scripture – and lines from hymns sung long ago – to be of enormous encouragement .
Sometimes we can’t seem to hear God’s voice in the middle of our ‘fire’ – ‘our storm’ – all we seem to hear is what is raging around us – but – if we wait – if we listen – we will hear that ‘still small voice’ – and sense Him near us – covering us – protecting us – from the things that rage around us.
As I sat reflecting this morning the words running through my mind were from a hymn -speaking of the ‘still small voice of calm’ – and I made it a prayer today – asking Him to drop those ‘still dews of quietness’ – not just into my own heart and soul – but into the hearts and souls of my sisters family.
I pray that for all others too – who are experiencing hard times – that you may hear Him ‘speak through that earthquake – wind – or fire – His still small voice of calm’ – and that you will experience His peace.
