Be not afraid – 3-24-21

Do you ever have a dream that leaves you in so much peace and comfort, you just want to stay there?

In March of 2016, I had one of those.  I was driving over a bridge or a dam and the clouds just came alive swirling around.  Tornadoes came down all over the place.  I knew we were going to be picked up.  I looked toward the back seat to check on my youngest granddaughter that lives with me.  She was very calm as she looked from the tornadoes to me.  There was nothing but calm and peace on her face.  We were picked up by the wind but it only lasted a minute before we were gently put back down again.  I continued to drive forward when I came to the end of the bridge or dam and had to go left or right.  Water like a raging river flooded the road I had to turn onto.  I knew it would take our breath away for a minute but we would be alright.  It took us on in and we floated along with the current.  For something to be so horrific, we felt so at peace and we were enveloped in so much love.  No matter how the storm rages, we may see it with our eyes, but we don’t feel it with our hearts.  Our faith carries us through.

Months after the dream I opened the bible to Isaiah 43:2 and felt that same peace and comfort.  ‘When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.’  God will save us either from the fire and water or in it, but He sees us through.

Later I had a stroke and asked the Lord what He thought about it as I entered the ER.  I opened a bible on the table to Isaiah 43:2.  God is so good to us.  He will never leave us nor forsake us in our hour of need.  I’ve been shown that too many times to even be able to get it all on here.  May the Lord richly bless you in your walk with Him today.  I hope you feel that same peace and comfort.
