Psalm 46:1-3; 10-11
For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. According to alamoth.[a] A song.
1 God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.
10 “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.”
11 The LORD Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
This world is dark and falling apart. But he is with us. He is for us. Be still and know that He is God. And take joy that surely he is making all things new.
It's funny that life was not considerate enough to slow down and let us have our 3rd child on our own terms. In the midst of transition, stress, worry, doubt, and fear, this little girl was coming whether we were ready or not. Monday morning found us like a hurricane that broke too early upon an unsuspecting shoreline. We weren't ready!!! And yet, as we let go and surrendered to nature's way, we found ourselves in the eye of the storm. There, with all of life's worries still swirling about us, we cherished the treasure God had blessed us with and chose to trust His timing. We discovered Selah Joy.
