The Reminder

I left early this morning to drive a friend to the airport. On my way back I cranked up my music to it's usual high volume and enjoyed the drive home. As the music floated, or as some might prefer to say, blasted, through my truck, God gave me a gorgeous reminder of His love by gifting me with a clear silver lining on the horizon with the sunrise peeking through. It was magnificent! It felt like He was telling me, once again to just be still, really, really, still.  The picture He was setting before me was incredible, and it was only Him. The song playing was "nothing is wasted in the hands of our Redeemer, every broken piece will be found! From the wreckage, glory will shine...."
Did you hear that? He takes absolutely everything and turns it around, somehow. I don't know how. But, nothing is wasted. So, the fact that I feel like I have wasted days, and I feel like I'm loosing out on places to live and stuff here on earth, and maybe I've made poor choices at times in my life, God knows how to turn it all for good. He knows because He is God and He knows my heart, and He loves me, He has released me and He has called me for His Kingdom! All of His children are called for His Kingdom, all are loved and all are released! Released into His hands, Redeemed. Gifted with a silver lining for eternity, because He is keeping our souls, my soul. This is what Jude had to say:

I, Jude, am a slave, to Jesus Christ and brother to James, writing to those loved by God the Father, called and kept safe by Jesus Christ. Relax, everything's going to be all right; everything's coming together; love is on the way!

Called and Kept safe by Jesus! So, relax, it's going to be okay.  Chill out, right? It's my version of God's  "be still". Jesus, You have promised that all things will come together, and that You will keep me. You have called me to be still in You and have faith. Say That Again, teach me to relax in You!
