......God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake
you."Hebrews 13:5


When I was a little younger , I registered to win a wind surfer from a local store & to my amazement , I won . My husband & I took it to our nearby lake and tried many times to master windsurfing , but I never became very good at it at all. But it was an interesting experience. I noticed the few times I was successful at actually sailing , that there was a sensation of standing still, & a sort of isolation.I think this was because of being one with the wind ,I no longer felt it blowing against me.
I have in my spiritual & prayer life at times felt the same sort of feelings. Times when I was greatly in distress, but finding a silence from God .But I know that Jesus was always there with me because I have the assurance of his word ,that "He would never leave me or forsake me ". In those times, Faith is what carried me through . I believe if we have assurance that we are His , Then we know He is there always & hears us..

Here is a wonderful poem by Amy Carmichael.

The Age -Long Minute

Thou art the God who slept upon the pillow,
Thou art the God who smoothed the furious sea,
What matter beating wind and tossing billow
If only we are in the boat with Thee ?


Hold us in quiet through the age-long minute
While thou are silent , and the wind is shrill:
Can the boat sink while Thou dear Lord, art in it ?
Can the heart faint that waiteth on Thy will?



The song I have for today is, He Is by Mark Schultz. It really spoke to my heart as I listened to it on the radio last week.



Blessings,
~Myrna
