In Quiet Trust

“Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops.” Matthew 10:27

Sometimes God puts me through the experience and discipline of darkness to teach me to hear and obey Him. And sometimes, while in that darkness, I lose my bearings. When that happens, I reach out to Him in a similar manner as recorded in my journal.

When will be my time? I have been thinking.


Yes, I know. You have many questions now.


I have a lot of time to think.


Much inside your head is noise and wandering. Focus.


I still can’t see heaven but much of hell when I focus.


No, you don’t see hell. You see fear, and your fear diverts from the important.


Why do you fear death and suffering?


Have you forgotten so many things you know?


No, but I know what I am, what I deserve.


Yet, Your word pulls me back when I remember all you told and promised: trust and truth.


You tell me the truth, and I count all you say.


As I wrote in my letter, you will die only once.


You will go through that door with me and be home


before you realize you have forgotten earth,


but not those still there. Your work has gone before you.


You are no stranger there or here.


What work? I remember no work.


Your Father and my Father have kept it safe there,


you nor it shall ever be blotted from the book.


Hebrews 6:10

He opened an extensive book with many names and many recorded items. He was laying it on a huge table. Then, he pointed to a specific place on a page. It was my name in a cuneiform I didn’t recognize but knew it was me. And my season of graduation was just above it. He looked at me with an expression confirming the truth, eyes shining with love. I became flooded with joy beyond words!


And then I woke up to the brightest sunlight streaming through my open window. The peace of Christ was coursing through mind, body, and soul that very moment -and onward. I knew what I had to do to obey what He had to say.

My Savior, my Joy. I will love Him with all that I am throughout eternity.


“In quietness and trust shall be your strength.” Isaiah 30:15


Kind Reader: Take heart. Christ Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Amen!


Note: The above is an accurate depiction drawn from different segments of my life with Him. And they all piece together like a portion of a broader mosaic. I count this post among my Memory Stones, or Ebenezers of Remembrance.
