‘Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the jail were shaken, and immediately all the doors were opened, and everyone’s chains came loose.’ Acts 16:26
Man, oh, man, DearOne,
Yesterday, I made a list of people who have touched my life who are, right now, suffering terribly, IN. DIRE. CRISIS. On the list were ones who are trembling from an earthquake that just won’t stop. There are so many, the list filled an entire page. These are not normal days.
As I was praying through, my Creator reminded me of Paul, in prison, in chains. Everything In his world had crumbled. Every habit he ever knew, every secure relationship, every boundary he had known since childhood – gone. He had given them up to follow Christ. And, there he was – chained. Uncertain.
Bewildered.
Sad, but still singing praises.
Called, yet trapped in a situation for which he didn’t ask.
Then the real earthquake began to shake. Walls crumbled. Chains fell. And, the same began happening to hearts – walls crumbled. Chains fell.
Sometimes it takes the radical to shake us and our people to the core to finally get to the place of His peace.
The stakes are high Dearheart.
We don’t see the big picture to know how this will turn out. But, Father God knows. And, His promise for our good, and not to harm us.
We must press on.
We must press on.
