Sometimes though, I have what seems like temporary spiritual amnesia. It can be debilitating. My mind wanders to all the possible, but unlikely, scenarios that life could throw my way. Before I know it, my heart is racing and my hands tremble as if I've had one too many cups of coffee.
So I pray, and I meditate. My go to scripture passage of late is in Philippians.
God knows how much I love falling asleep to the sound of rain drops! There's no other sound I'd rather fall asleep to, except maybe the ocean waves. But this night He's allowed me to read and not fall asleep. He's allowed me to meditate on scripture and pray, and then He's spoken through the sound of rain.
"I love you child. I cherish you. I've preserved your life. I've kept you and I will continue to keep you. You are loved. You are Mine. You are held in the palm of My hand and no one can take you. Nothing can happen to you that I do not ordain."
God knew the rain was coming. He knew I needed to hear it. Oh, God, how do I ever doubt you? You kept me awake to hear the rain. You spoke through the rain to remind me of all these things.
I listen to the rain with a renewed spirit, and fall asleep.
