The Melody in the Wind

Can you hear it?

It is the Song of the Ages, still playing beneath the stresses and strains of this world, fresh from your Father’s heart. Regardless of all that’s going on around you, it invites you into his reality.

It’s not the loudest song in the wind. Fears and anger will scream louder. The rancor of political discord will drown it out, and it can easily be swallowed up by the cacophonous strains of anxiety that dominate these troubled times.

But beneath it all, his song still plays, as certain as the rising sun, more triumphant than the most exquisite symphony.

You won’t find it while groping for certainty in your imagined future. You won’t be able to focus on it while arguing your politics or putting your hope in yet-to-be-fulfilled prophecies about a coming revival.

You have no idea what is to come, and neither do all those voices. The honest ones will tell you that. Your certainty now has to be in Jesus and him alone. All others are mere illusions, which may comfort for the moment but, when they fail you, how deep will that pain be? Circumstances, both favorable and unfavorable, will come and go.

The only refuge is to abandon yourself to the amazing love of a gracious Father and see his divine purpose unfolding around you. He will never let you down.

Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid.
The LORD, the LORD, is my strength and my song; he
has become my salvation.
ISAIAH 12:2 (NIV)”\

    What a peaceful blessing your writing is to me, an encouragement to just sit with Father in His love, and to watch for His workings in the seemingly minute details of daily life! I have ordered the book of daily devotions. I saw you in person many years ago in the San Francisco Bay Area, and now live near Portland, Oregon. It has been a blessing to read the story of disconnection and subsequent reconnection of you and Sara, and all of the deep pain that entailed! God is such a good, good Father, and His methods and purpose so much higher than our limited understanding!

  7. The PS from our Savior’s servant Paul in Col 3:15 “let the peace of God rule (reign) in your hearts…” and BE THANKFUL…That always seems to work for me.
