Yesterday was one of those storms that pass through the emotions, where I thought I might be blown off
my footing and keep right on blowing.
I'm so thankful for the Lord in our lives.
He changes things from night to day.
It reminded me of the storm the diciples were in. It looked like they were done for, but the Lord calmed the storm with a word.
I can't see properly when I am in a storm.
I don't feel or perceive things correctly. Not when one is pounding my ship.
But when the Lord comes, all is okay, all is calm.
In the middle of this sensory misperception, I was writing an ad for craigslist, looking for a shop space.
Putting my feet out to find a donated space.
I am so very aware that I could put out ads till the day is long to any number of people and
except the Lord open the door, it doesn't open.
I still do it, it is a prayer to me.
It is the do all you know to do, and then stand, to me. But I have done what I know to do. Everything is in His hands.
But while I was writing up my ad and explaining the ministry we do, about the people and children and taking food and help to them,
I said in sincerity of heart that could only come from Jesus, knowing it was the Lord's love, so easily felt, given by our Lord, ....I said that we Love doing this. And we do.
That we love these children.
And Jesus does love these children.
I could feel His love sharing that so clearly.
As I was writing, the Love of God was so clear to me, came so clear and so wonderfully, expressing love for these children.
His love and presence stayed with me as I felt His love in this, thinking on my Lord and knowing it was His presence and Love. And I was lifted out of the storm I was in, immediately.
His presence calmed the storm and every misconception and wrong thinking a storm can bring.
All was still in love and peace now, and the ability to walk through it all.
I was kept in Love all day, the whole
day and today, the next, and know He is with me everyday.
My entire view changed instantly.
Everything that was hard, was now easy. Everything that looked dark
now was light. In the Presence of His Love, all is well.
I could do all I have to do forever.
It is so clear to see that, in His love.
I praise the Lord!
