seemed to fall flat, like the
myriad of copper pennies
frozen in time at the bottom
of a wishing well.
I realize my insignificance;
I am like a period at the end
of a sentence in a book
filled with thousands of words.
Yet, I know you call me by name.
“Fear not, for I have redeemed
you; I have called you by name,
you are mine.” Isaiah 43:3 (ESV)
Is something blocking your
communication from reaching me?
Am I like a cell phone out of range
from its tower? Is there too much
interference from the static of the
“Put me on trial, LORD, and cross-
examine me. Test my motives and
my heart.” Psalm 26:2 (NLT)
Is my trust like that of a small infant
being cradled in secure arms? Or do
I doubt? My trust is never
misplaced if it is in you.
“Faith is being sure of what
we hope for and certain of what
we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1
So I persisted, both down on my
knees and by reading the Word.
I cried out, but the answer
came in a whisper. Not like
the rushing wind or shout from
heaven that I had expected.
“Be still, and know that I am God.” (Psalm 46:10)
