Five More Seconds
Do you ever struggle to sit still long enough to hear God speak to you during your quiet time? I do.
Sometimes I rush through my quiet time and then wonder why it feels like something’s missing.
Psalm 103:13-14 NIV says:
As a father has compassion on his children,
so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him;
for he knows how we are formed,
he remembers that we are dust.
God’s not an insensitive narcissist.
He’s a good Father who remembers we’re made of dust.
So let’s focus on He who is bigger and better than all the bad stuff that happens to any of us.
God’s not afraid of our tears
Because His Son has walked this earth
He listens with patient ears
For He feels the pain of the curse
Suffered during our earthly years
But Christ’s blood bought us rebirth
So we are freed from sin and fear
Because God’s love gives us hope-filled worth
For right here.
I’ve shared a personal story about this on a recent-under-7-minutes-long podcast (Track #40) on HopeStreamRadio.
