It was 5.45am and the waves were roaring upon the sandy shore, the skies were filled with blacked clouds. The atmosphere echoed with thunder as lightning flickered across the horizon. As I walked along the shore I listened to the tranquility that surrounded me. I spent time marvelling at Gods creation that I was amidst – He made this! Just imagine His power!
I felt small and then I felt overwhelmed with the thought that the God who created all of this, not only created me too but loves me and truely cares. He actually wants a relationship with me. Wow!
Little did I know that my time with God this morning would prepare me for the day ahead.
As I write this, its 10.40pm and my heart is heavy, I am blinded by confusion. I don’t know how to approach todays events, or what to do next. How did things reach this point? For weeks this has been unfolding and I can’t help but wonder when this will end. To what extent will this go?
All I know for certain is that I am so grateful for the relationship I have with my Heavenly Father, there is much comfort in knowing that my help comes from Him; my sole provider of comfort and strength.
“Greater is He who is in me, than He who is in the world” – 1 John 4:4
Tonight I sit in my parked car, down at the foreshore. Crying out as the sun sets.
I believe there is still hope. Perhaps this is where He meets me.
