God, Our Eyes Are On You

2 Chronicles 20:1-19

Anyone who has lived on this earth for any period of time has experienced it. It’s that moment when the ground seems to give way beneath us and our knees become weak. It usually happens in an instant–a phone call, a knock on the door, a doctor’s diagnosis–but the effect lasts much longer. It can be the end of a much-loved job, the loss of a loved one, the rebellion of a child, news of an illness, or any one of a number of traumatic events.

Imagine God’s people in the land of Judah, hearing that vast armies were heading their way, bent on their destruction. Were they weak in the knees? No doubt. Frightened? Surely. However, the Scripture tells us they came from all over to seek God. They knew He was the only source of help and salvation in the midst of traumatic times.

Our God is with us in the midst of the very worst situation this life can throw at us. Sometimes He takes the problem away entirely, other times He walks through it with us. Either way, He can be trusted.

    Hi Mary, This is beautiful. Of course I immediately thought of Harper’s Ferry and the ground giving way underneath me. And I thought of you and how you helped keep me together while I was in the hospital. How you sent me a pastor to minister to my spiritual needs but also my daily “I can’t believe I broke the arm in 3 places!” fear. I think about that a lot, now that the arm is mended. I thank God for you and other people, friends and passing thru who keep me on an even keel especially when I am in major DISTRUST mode. It’s been a long hard winter. I sometimes wonder if I will ever have an extended period of time where my trust doesn’t get rattled but good.

    This week my friend Fayelene, had a terrible thing happen. She is 4 weeks away from moving back to FL. At 63 she was hoping life would be easier. Keep her in your prayers. For her health and for her dream of re-uniting with old friends in the sunshine state.

    When I write, I am trying to convey what you say in the last paragraph. Praying every day can help, but sometimes…..it’s like being in the ER all over again before we talked.

    So, are you writing a novel yet? It’d be good. God’s love and grace, G
