Day 29: The Quiet Wait


It is happening again

As I have been awake way before the sun rises

Just sitting

Just being still

Waiting

on God

Waiting

for God

to fill me

with something

and all I feel is the

stillness

so I question

Where are you God?

Because

I want something new

to just blow my socks off.

And all I hear is

stillness.

But

Where are you God?

So I question Him~

I showed up,

just like you asked,

so what do you have for me?

Then I remember

Elijiah

and the conversation God had with him~

"The Lord said,

'Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord, for the

Lord is about to pass by.'

So Elijiah

Waited and Watched~

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.

After the earthquake came a fire,

BUT the Lord was not in the fire.

And after the fire came

a gentle whisper." I King 19:11-12

Hmm...

Maybe it is all about the

Stillness in the wait

A Gentle whisper

The gentle reminder

that

God is here

whether we

Hear Him

or

Feel Him

or

whether a burning bush shows up in our home.

God doesn't have to do cartwheels to prove that

He is with us.

Thank you

God for the gentle reminder

that you are

in the stillness

because~

"He says, 'Be still, and know that I am God'" Psalm 46:10

From Wait to Wait

is His taking us

From Rags to Riches!
