One Good Thing Every Day: April 20, 2013

Mark 4:39 NKJV

Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.


Isaiah 30:15 NIV

This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says:

“In repentance and rest is your salvation,    

in quietness and trust is your strength,    

but you would have none of it.


On Thursday, my middle son’s indoor softball game was cancelled due to a blizzard. As he sobbed his disappointment into my shoulder, I silently expressed gratitude. Yesterday, schools closed. Our home school does not tend to close for snow days, but I readily cancelled our field trip into the city. Ten inches of snow slowed our rapid pace. As I read these verses this morning, I marveled that God used a storm to calm our busy life. Rather than bemoan this blanket of unseasonable weather, I wrapped it around me and drifted through these days peacefully.
