In the Stillness

This morning I awoke with a particular verse from Scriptures going around in my mind. In the quiet, I lay there thinking about it.

The verse (11) comes from I Corinthians in what is often called the Love chapter. Here it is from the International version, with the Apostle Paul addressing the Corinthians:

“When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.”

How many times I get caught up in an action and realize later that it was the child in me acting, perhaps wanting some safety, wanting one less change, one less disturbance in my world, that is, until I catch up.  Other times, however, I accept change better or am more adaptive.

Have you ever felt that way, grown-up one minute, and like a child another time?

We are God’s children, and here I think of an angel leading two children safely over a bridge to their destination. In the guidance of Jesus, we can grow stronger, more mature and listen to what God says to us. To allow him to guide us. We’re not alone.

And here is Ali Matthews singing: In the Stillness
