Reassurance - September 19, 2005

"God is our refuge and our strength, a very present help in trouble." Psalm 46:1

The storm was on its way. We knew it. The leaves began to flutter in the trees with the tell-tale signs of the impending storm. With each roll of thunder, my two-year-old grandson, Davis, said, "Thunder, Nana, thunder."

"Yes", I would reply, "It's okay; the thunder wont hurt you. Nana is here with you."

We repeated this scenario many, many times before the rain pellets battered our windows and the ground flooded with water. Each time he would cry out, I would try to soothe him and give him reassurance.

God is like that, I believe. He wants us to know He is with us during the times when we are frightened. When we call out, over and over, in fear and trembling during the troubles of life, He whispers His assuring words to us. He will always be available for His children. He gives us many promises in the Bible to tell us this truth, but one of my favorites is Psalm 55:22: "Cast thy burden upon the Lord and He shall sustain thee."

Let us always remember that God will never leave nor forsake us! How blessed we are!
