Good morning DearHeart,
You know, no one in human skin is exempt from drama.
And … every emotion known to man. The outer edges of our daily behavior is based on the “deal” going on today in our life … whatever happens there on the fringe demands an emotion like the surface of a lake – sometimes dead calm, sometimes windy and rough. Cycles,
and drama come and go and influence the surface. Those who have hearts that are sold out to Christ find that deep down – the lake is undisturbed.
No matter the white-caps, the Creator has your resting place ready and available and accessible.
As a child of the living God, you are the whole lake – in touch with the depth of the Prince of Peace, which remains absolutely still. We abide in His unchanging, timeless, deathless presence. Our surface fluctuates – plays, experiences, creates and dabbles in continuous drama … God gets that, He lived in skin for a while on earth, too. But, the only requirement you and I have as His children is to attach ourselves to His navigation through the waters to the deep, to our eternity. Mm. Yeah. Rest there.
No matter the storm that disrupts your fringes, choose to go deep in His peace.
‘He will be named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.’
Isaiah 9:6b HCSB
Seize the drama.
Enter His calm.
