Still...

Life can be scary at times, but it can also be so very beautiful. In the moments when life is the scariest and the unknowns seem to far outweigh the certainties, it is my prayer that you would remember the goodness of our God. Walking through those moments of fear and worry can be some of the hardest moments of your life. If we are honest those moments often feel like they will never end, but I promise you that you never walk alone through them.


In those hazy and dark moments God is right there with you. He will never leave you or forsake you. He goes before you and comes behind. There is literally nowhere in the universe you could ever go that our God is not there. His goodness and mercy is a gift, and more often than not He places people in our lives that can come along side us to walk through those dark moments with us. Whether its a word of encouragement from a friend, a hug or even a simple random act of kindness. We can see the hands and feet of God all around us.


Its crazy to me how in the middle of those scary moments it can almost seem like the world is standing still. Whether a tragedy has occurred or maybe you are walking through a season of life that is covered in darkness. It can feel like nothing makes sense and the world is simple at a stand still, but in the midst of that stillness there comes a gentle whisper. A reminder that we are never alone. The gentle voice of our Creator reminding us that we are children of the most high. Royal heirs to His everlasting kingdom.


I love this conversation that Elijah had in 1 Kings 19 lets read it together,


"Go out and stand before me on the mountain, the Lord told him. And Elijah stood there, the Lord passed by, and a mighty windstorm hit the mountain. It was such a terrible blast that the rocks were torn loose, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. And after the earthquake there was a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire there was the sound of a gentle whisper." - 1 Kings 19:11-12

God was in the gentle whisper. In the stillness of the quiet, He was there, waiting with His unending, never-failing love and mercy. It can sometimes be so hard to remember that we never have to be afraid because we serve a God of the impossible. He is above all things and through Him all things have been created.


If there is one thing I have learned over the last few days is that even in the moments when it can be hard to see the good in the situations we may be facing, we can be encouraged to know that we are never alone. I can honestly say without a doubt in my mind that the goodness of God has followed me every day of my life and He continues to watch over me to this day. I have never walked alone and I never will, and neither do any of you friends.


In the still moments within the chaos around us we can find the goodness of our God. We can cling to the goodness of our God no matter the season of the circumstance we may be walking through. Our God is bigger, stronger, greater, better than anything and everything we could or will ever face! He is above all things and He is always good friends! Cling to that promise friends and remember it wasn't in the big over the top moments where God was found. It was in the gentle whisper.




Much love friends,

Alianna
