The wind blows hard in south
Chase & I embarked on our white horse (aka
As I turned down the next street to turn on our street, low and behold, more dogs. This was the day of the great dog escape. Gates blew open all around the neighborhood. Made calls from the cell phone, called in some partners and we gathered the other loose dogs and got them home in their yards.
Besides letting the dogs loose, the wind seemed to stir up other things. Commotion with siblings. Convalescent leave for my husband's unexpected injury. Turbulent emotions blowing rampant in me.
The wind blows again today. Where are you Lord? Is He in the wind?
1 Kings 19:11-13 NIV
11 The LORD said, "Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the LORD, for the LORD is about to pass by."
Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake. 12 After the earthquake came a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper. 13 When Elijah heard it, he pulled his cloak over his face and went out and stood at the mouth of the cave.
Then a voice said to him, "What are you doing here, Elijah?"
Lord, I wait for You to pass me by after this storm. I long to hear Your gentle whisper!
Will there be peace here today? Where is the peace?
Mark 4:38-40 NIV
38Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, "Teacher, don't you care if we drown?"
39He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, "Quiet! Be still!" Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.
40He said to his disciples, "Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?"
Lord, I ask You to quiet the winds in my life. I pray it be still. I want to have faith, Lord.
Jesus said to His disciples (and to me), “All this I have spoken while still with you. But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” (John 14:25-27)
Lord, I praise You for Your Word. I praise You for Your Son, Jesus. I’d be lost without HIM and hopeless. Holy Spirit come and teach me and remind me what I have learned. Lord, with You I have hope for Your peace. Your peace that You give, not as the world gives. Let not my heart be troubled. I will not be afraid. All things are in Your control. I long to hear Your whisper. In Jesus name, Amen.
