Flooding the Room

“I will answer your cry for help every time you pray, and you will find and feel my presence even in your time of pressure and trouble. I will be your glorious hero and give you a feast.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭91:15‬ ‭TPT‬‬

Had the privilege of setting an alarm for the first time in two weeks. I had to be up to answer my phone if any calls from work came through. I am not back to work but I am playing a small part in the work flow. So much has happened in a short period of time in all of our lives. Nothing is the same and I wonder if it ever will be.

As I sat here bundled in blankets on my couch this morning waiting for heat to fill this room I read a devotion. Brewed some coffee. Played some worship music. Sent a card to a friend. And prepared to write the next chapter in my book. But something so simple stopped me in the busyness of the morning. The sun.

There came a point this morning where the sunshine was right in my face. I could have moved but heat still evaded the room. I chose instead to capture this moment in time. As I began to welcome the sun on my face, I closed my eyes and truly rested in it. I knew the moment would be over soon. I perhaps may not get this exact outpouring again.

As the sun flooded the room I felt a peace I had not experienced in awhile. I know God has me in the palm of His mighty hand. I know this too shall pass. I believe those who believe are sheltered under His wing. But, I am human. I battle thoughts and emotions about our current state of living just like everyone else. I too at times become overtaken by the “what ifs” of not knowing what happens next.

In those times of uncertainty we need to choose to move past the dark thoughts and open ourselves up to the Sonshine. Taking the time to plant ourselves somewhere and just soak up the goodness of God. Let His light flood our thoughts allowing the very rays of light to burn up all insecurities.

The more we give into the fear, the darker our thoughts become which opens us up to speak things into existence. If I have learned anything from the many Bible Studies I have been to is that life and death are in the tongue. If we keep saying out of worry, “I’m going to get this” there is a really could possibility we might. Fear takes a toll on our bodies.

We need to speak life! We need to embrace the true reality of the Word of God. We need to take the truth of what it says and speak those words over our lives and BELIEVE they apply to us. Take this week to live out Psalm 91. Read it out loud. Put your name in it. Put your loved ones name it. Choose to soak up the Sonshine.

The physical sun may not always be shining but I know I can sit on my couch, close my eyes, take a few deep breaths and remember this moment.
