“A soul united to God and transformed by him draws from within God a divine breath.” (St. John of the Cross)
This week, we have all been in a state of prayer; getting ready for a storm.
There are many storms that come in life; emotional, physical, financial, etc.
Like many of you, there are times in my life that I am afraid. Fear is part of our makeup and nature. It’s ok to have healthy fears. It is the unhealthy fears, the obsessions that can overtake us.
If I use my prayer tools, darkness cannot invade my sacred space.
God does not send us negativity. At Calvary, Jesus said at Calvary, “It is finished.”
We can learn so much by bringing prayer into our life, whether it is embracing the lines from scripture or from another inspirational text.
I remember the first time I came across Psalm 91. This line resonated with me: “You are my defender and the most high my protector. You are my God, in you I trust.” God will stand for and with us when we ask for help.
“We need not fear any dangers at night”. If the sound of thunder drives me out of bed, prayer drops me back in.
Gods promise is: “When they call to me, I will answer them; when they are in trouble, I will be with them. I will rescue them and save them”.
“Lo, I am with you always. I am always with you.”
