“…yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed” says the Lord.It is often QUIET in my house, but I have little to complain about. It’s just different being quiet, it’s both a blessing and an awareness… NOT a problem. Trust me, I’m not complaining even in a slight sadness. Sometimes sorrow and longing lead us in roads of resting in His Presence and Promise. Accept awareness.
See, I am not alone, my son is upstairs and the cat is here, she is sitting next to me right now, patient and paying attention. The cat would like attention but seems to know half her job is just to be a companion. She is a watcher, she has an awareness. I have a soul to talk to, and she knows when I am talking to her. She knows also fear, loud noises, uneasiness. But also and of course joy, comfort, contentment. She has been sent as a blessing. (She will be most happy when her favorite cat mom comes home at Thanksgiving, she will feel her soul-worth in serving)…
See, in a bigger sense and in mini-minutia circumstances, we ALWAYS need to remember WE ARE NOT ALONE. And being completely alone is NOT something we really will ever find out. The Lord is here, ALWAYS.
You don’t have to find out the hard way, God IS Here, find out the easy Way. We can seek Him in truth and talk to Him in Spirit. Worship Him, He ia always working.
No, not like a cat companion but a constant conscious companion, captain coach, curious curtailer to concerns. The Lord is here, talk to Him. God draws us closer to calm us and remind us to depend upon Him.
Sometimes I can’t find the cat (she hides in thunderstorms and smoke detector alarms from kitchen overcooking, oops). But we can always find the Lord. Sometimes the presence of quiet peace, sometimes the blockage of knowing more than we should, and ALWAYS the time we can have in His Word… The Lord is never further than one minute part of a molecule away. Actually He is IN my dust holding me into a person, able to pull apart or rejoin any molecules as needed to heal me back to earth or to help me along to Heaven. God holds us ALWAYS.
God knows our days. We are to number them and make the most of them.
The cat wakes me up from daydreaming… The Lord? He IS my DAY – no dreaming – we are never alone. He is our Sword and Shield in this world. He was is and will be our LIGHT in the darkness – we will never be without Him.
“For a brief moment I abandoned you, but with deep compassion I will bring you back. In a surge of anger I hid my face from you for a moment, but with everlasting kindness I will have compassion on you,” says the Lord your Redeemer.
“To me this is like the days of Noah, when I swore that the waters of Noah would never again cover the earth.
So now I have sworn not to be angry with you, never to rebuke you again.
Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the Lord, who has compassion on you.”
