“The tsuamis of our lives cause us to take our eyes off ourselves and look to you, God. In the uncertainty, amidst the storm and shaking, we are forced to cry out to the Unshakeable One. Psalm 46 v. 1 God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea v. 10 Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth. All is being shaken so that our only foundation will be on God alone.”
I found these thoughts scribbled on a notebook in my purse, written in March during a prayer time we had at our church in Hawaii on the Sunday after the tsunami hit Kona’s shore.
As we prayed for those effected by the earthquake and tsunamis, God was speaking to me about how the shaking times in my own life have caused me to draw closer to him. Little did I know that in less than a week, we would be experiencing a small tsunami in our lives as Ralph would enter the hospital and our life and plans would be turned upside down.
It was comforting to find these notes and know that God was preparing my heart for all we would be walking through with Ralph’s health. Right now, we are still finding this true that God is so near, closer than ever amidst this storm and we are finding rest in Him.
