12 Ways to Turn Your Pain into Praise

Sapphires from Psalms

Better Than Jewels

 

Once there was a man who dared God to speak. Burn the bush like you did for Moses, God. And I will follow you. Collapse the walls like you did for Joshua. And I will fight. Still the waves like you did on Galilee, God. And I will listen.

 And the man sat by a bush, near a wall, close to the sea and waited for God to speak.

And God heard the man, so God answered. He sent fire, not for the bush, but for the church. He brought down a wall, not of brick, but of sin. He stilled the storm, not of the sea, but of the soul.

 And God waited for the man to respond. And he waited...and waited.

 But because the man was looking at bushes, not hearts; bricks not lives, seas and not souls, he decided that God had done nothing.

 Finally he looked to God and asked, “Have you lost your power?”

 And God looked at him and said, “Have you lost your hearing?”

 From the ever-so-effective Max Lucado, A Gentle Thunder

 My goal is to keep my ears open, and look for God to show up, everyday! How about you?
