A Conversation with God 7/28/16
Me: God, I’m so tired.
God: Come to me and rest.
Me: It’s just this world is getting me down. I’m so tired of hateful, mean-spirited judgement. So tired of the poor being downtrodden so the rich and arrogant can gain. I’m tired of people being mistreated because of the color of their skin, their religion, their gender and who they love. I’m so tired and confused about this election…so many lies…so much division and way too many walls.
God: Come away, and rest a while. I will be your refuge. Lay hold of the hope I give and let it be an anchor for your soul; for I am sure and steadfast. Find your strength in Me and know how much you are loved. Nothing will ever separate you from me because my love is unstoppable. You are a gift to me and a gift to this world.
Me: Thank you Lord. I will lay myself down and rest in your loving presence.
Me: Yes, Lord?
God: It’s going to be okay. I got this…
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? I am persuaded, that neither, death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:35-39
Come…and rest a while. Mark 6:31
Come unto Me all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matt 11:28
We…have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: [This] hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast… Hebrews 6:18-19
