You Are Not Alone

I woke up this morning to the sound of rain. As I laid in bed watching the rain stream down my window, I began to call out to my Father. Why am I feeling so hopeless, afraid and alone? “ My mind was full of confusion and uncertainty. I felt frail. “Speak to me Lord, I’m listening”….

As my heart filled with tears it began to overflow. “ Are you hearing me God? I’m here!! Where are You? “ My cry was muffled by the pounding rain. As I lifted my head and turned around, I saw my sweet little girls snuggled together with their arms wrapped around each other. I began to bawl. God revealed Himself to me! Trying to catch my breath, I slowly drifted off the bed onto the floor wiping my tears off my face.

I remained silent to accept His sweet love. I closed my eyes and put my head on my knees. Just as I was tearing up again, I felt His warm arms snuggle me. He was letting me know He was right there next to me. I didn’t have to worry anymore. In an instant He took my worries away and gave me strength.

Why is it that when a child wakes up from a nightmare in the middle of the night he runs to his parents? Because he feels afraid and unsafe. He knows once mommy or daddy wraps their arms around him, everything will be okay.

This morning I needed to feel safe. I found security in my Father’s arms.

“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Isaiah 41:10


  1. That photo made me cry! I pictured myself in that warm embrace of Jesus and how I so badly need to be held by Him right now. And I know He's doing exactly that, holding me. Thank you for sharing this dearest! It sounds like we're both in need of some direction from God. You're in my prayers.

  2. Absolutely Love it! You are an amazing soul with a passion for understanding God's direction for your life. In the midst of being patient it is always best to be snuggled into his loving arms. It is the safest & most fulfilling place to be.

  3. hey. I think your post came right after mine. Interesting how different lives can be exactly the same. How connected we are, how similar, how frail that just a bit of rain can stir up enough emotion to bring us "Down our knees!"

    Just the same, hope.
