Can you stand it? More beautiful?? (3rd post in a row with “beautiful” in the title for those who wonder what the heck I’m talking about)
I’m thinking of a song I love tonight as I’ve been listening to God tell me that there’s no need to panic when those I love make choices I wouldn’t want them to make or seem to be struggling a little to “find their feet” on this path. He is able and He is watching. He’s never distracted or bewildered as to how to help them or draw them near. He loves them, so much more than I do, which is hard for me to grasp when I feel it so deeply from my insides out. Right now, though my first impulse was to talk and try to control I feel God telling me to be quiet, to watch and see. I’m praying and trying to stay so close to Him so that I can hear whenever He prompts me to speak and help, but in the meantime I can almost see him wave his arms out in a flourish with a big smile and say “Watch what I can do! Out of the ashes, out of blunders, out of missteps, I will bring beauty, healing, and wholeness.” I’m watching, Papa. Please handle with care. You know how much she means to me.
