It’s been raining for days in Hartbeespoort. Soft, gentle rain. And the mist is hanging like the veil of a bride, hiding the mountain. It is so peaceful. It feels as if life has slowed down somewhat. No use rushing anywhere in this weather. I am so aware of God’s presence and God’s peace. I has overwhelmed me along with the mist and the rain. I battle to focus on anything else.
Why do we try so hard to solve all our problems on our own and only when we don’ succeed, then we turn to God? Why do we allow the stress of modern living to consume us and to affect every area of our lives? Why do we lay awake at night, tossing and turning, looking for answers to the problems we face? We all have the answers. All of them.
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Slow down. Calm down. You have a Father in heaven under whose wings you can hide. Allow His peace to overwhelm you. Leave it all to Him. He will sort it all out for you.
