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 doYOU have for me?

Then I remember

Elijah

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 Elijah

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)
