"Mommy, you need to tuck me in again."
My head sank low in that moment and the only thing I could do was literally look up at the bathroom ceiling.
I didn't even have to say a word, and yet, The Word spoke to me:
I lift my eyes up, to the mountains.
Where does my help come from?
My help comes from you,
Maker of Heaven,
Creator of the earth.
Oh, how I need you, Lord.
You are my only hope.
You're my only prayer.
So I will wait for you to come and rescue me,
come and bring me life.
It's a Psalm, Psalm 121 to be exact, but it's also a song that I learned decades ago. And I love that in a second, my God could calm my soul with His Word. Sometimes it's not answers to specific questions that I need. Sometimes, I don't even have to ask a question at all. Sometimes I just need reassurance that He loves me, that He sees me, that He wants to help me in my time of need.
Challenge: Is there space in your life for God to interrupt your train of thought for a moment so that He can breathe His life into yours? Do you find that you are open to God in some areas of your life, but not necessarily in others? Is there a space that you think He might want to speak? Are you willing to allow His Word to draw you in?
