this place in time,
that I might seek and find
my God, my God.”
(Yearn by Shane&Shane)
In the midst of the storm, I have caught glimpses of the LORD, but my eyes have been too fixed on the situations of life to turn my gaze into the eyes of the One who holds it all. Softly, He has been trying to get my attention, but I did not listen over the roar of the waves. Finally, the gentle whispers are heard by my heart.
Ignoring the waves that threaten to overwhelm, I see the place of peace for which my heart has been longing. In the arms of my Shepherd, I can see above the waves; I am secure. I have been here before – I have felt His strength, rested in His peace, reveled in His love… Why did it take me so long to return?
“The LORD is my strength and my shield; in Him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to Him…
Be [my] Shepherd and carry [me] forever.” ~Psalm 28:7-9
