Sometimes God speaks and we think we know exactly what He’s saying…
Then when things don’t go exactly the way we thought, we doubt that He said anything at all.
This is the story of my life 😂
Last year, there were many times that God showed up in the midst of the chaos that was going on around me.
There was one week where 2 of my best friends (without the other knowing) gave me an item with Psalm 46:10 on it:
Be still and know that I am God.
One gave me a shirt and the other gave me a bracelet. Whenever I started to get fearful and doubt, I would cling to the fact that God wanted me to rest in Him and trust Him.
This, among other instances, told me that everything would be okay because He was in control. What I interpreted that to mean was… “my son is going to be born healthy.”
I’m not going to lie and say that I haven’t doubted God’s voice since he passed, but as the year has gone by, one thing has become very clear…
His ways and thoughts are higher than mine. (Isaiah 55:9)
He’s still speaking and moving even when we don’t like how the events in our life are transpiring.
When bad things happen in life, we can be still and know He is God.
Knowing that He is God and believing that He is in control of all things; knowing and believing that He’s working all things for the good of those who love him and have been called according to his purpose (Romans 8:28)… these are the sources of stillness and peace when it comes to grief.
