And the clouds opened up…
So, the other night, tuesday night last, I walked home form work. I live bout ten minutes from my work as I walk, and it was a cool night. I was thinking all night of asking someone to take me home, but I just didn’t. Don’t know why, just didn’t.
I’ve takin’ to likin’ these walks. Its quiet and dark and everyone is usully asleep. Its relly one of the few chnces I have to being alone.
As some of you know, I’m relly struggling to figure out what to do after I graduate. i worry and fret about it and I tend to wrestle with it bit more than i should. But, its good to think about these things.
As I was alking home, I was walking through a particularly darker street. It had rined earlier that evening and the sky was still overcast. As I was praying, I begn to really pour out my heart to God, just telling Him all of my thoughts, concerns and worries about teh new yer, when a wind came up, out of nowhere and blew the clouds away, revealing a perfect night sky. No moon, so all the strs could be seen. Mars, the bright ornge brilliance, was directly overhead. I heard an assurance in my heart:
“If God can tke care of all these stars, create, name and sustain them, and direct that planet with such grace, why am i so worried?”
As I rounded the corner, I was full of praise and prayer, thanking God, but He was not done. At the bottom of the hill, three doe started to cross the road. And nother reassurnace came up:
“Those deer do not worry about anything. They are given all they need, and when they are taken, it is at God’s hand, as He even provides for the hunter through them.”
Such sovreignty our God has.
Am I still gonna worry adn fret, probably. But not right now. And not when i remember the evening of All Saint’s Day.
