I felt the earth tremble in Samoa, as a Cyclone was scheduled to hit Apia in January of 2005. In the middle of our prayer meeting where we were imploring God to turn the storm, the ground moved under me. The cylone turned. The weather reporters were mute as to why. The Lord is my rock.
That same natural cycle that bleeds into our lives. It’s that same unexpected change in the midst of constancy that throws us off kilter. There are crests and troughs, mountains and valleys. My “life as it should be wish” is to ride on the crest and to live on the mountain. Even when constant, the troughs of a wave tend to smash be about, and the valleys are always a bit stuffy and tense.
I don’t think this hope for an always upbeat rhythm is an unreasonable wish. We’ve been made to soar on wings as eagles, even above the waves and mountains. Yet the journey requires feet that are steady each step of the way until this “life as it should be” time appears, and the journey takes on an eternal quality where smashing and stuffiness cease.
Constant rhythm? It exists. It draws me in and refuses to let me go. I hear it retrospectively, and when I’m still I feel its strong beat. I know it’s real or else I wouldn’t have this constant longing. It’s in the valley as well as on the mountain and sets my eyes on the heart to whom it belongs.
