A New Blog Series

The wind shook me. It shook what I held dear. It nearly tipped my sanity over the edge. The rains drenched my hope. They weighed down my joy and settled my emotional state into a pattern of gloom and sadness, with relief sprinkled in.


It was an inner storm—the kind you can’t run away from. The kind that can twist and swirl inside as violently as a tornado. I grew weary and longed for peace. Longed for some quiet. Would it ever come?

“Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son,
and they shall call his name Immanuel”
(which means, God with us).
Matthew 1:23 ESV


Many years before His birth, Isaiah foretold that Jesus would be born and that He would be called “Immanuel,” which means “God is with us.” Jesus didn’t come to earth just to be our Savior, He came to become our Lord. He came as Friend, as God Himself. He is our Helper, our Sustainer, our Protector, and our Provider. He is our Healer, full of mercy and grace. He especially is our Love. He is most assuredly the God Who is with us.


As believers we find all this is true in different times, places, and situations. Through His Holy Spirit, Jesus dwells with us. No matter what we are going through, He is in our midst. Guiding us, comforting us, loving us.

I meet once a month with a dear and trusted friend. Her name is Caroline. We share in confidence the things which tug at our hearts. We laugh, too. We talk about the beach and pedicures. Good food, favorite authors, pastors, and Bible studies are also in the mix. She loans me fine books from her library and we pray together.


Once, when an evening reached well spent before we had actually begun to pray, Caroline said we needn’t be dismayed. She directed me to Malachi 3:16 (KJV):


Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another:
And the Lord hearkened, and heard it;
And a book of remembrance was written before him
For them that feared the Lord
And that thought upon his name.
