It happened seemingly all at once. The sky darkened, the wind pushed the tree limbs horizontal, cold rain slashed the windows, howls screeched around our almost 100 year old house. Quick fear, followed by a quick prayer. The verse that brings so much peace came to mind….Be still and know that I am God.
These days of 2020 have produced so much panic and change, that even a benign cold front can make me freak out for a moment. But God. But God. That is what keeps me going, keeps me stable, keeps me at peace. He never changes or panics or leaves. He is God. I just have to be still.
Moments later, the sun is out, the rain has stopped. All is well.
I don’t know how it’s feeling in your part of the world, but here in Virginia, it was 41 degrees F this morning. I’m one of those people who don’t like to put on the heat before November….”just put on another sweater” kind of girl. Mostly because I get a thrill out of getting a very low electric bill that month. 🙂 But this fireplace is looking really good right about now. (Picture taken last week at Harvest festival at Graves’ Mountain.) May God bless you today with warmth in your heart, and a constant fire of His Spirit. Blessings, Lisa
