I'm writing for 31 days with a community of writers. Five minute posts are flowing from my brain through my finger tips, no editing...just publish. Day 5 was stuck...I got stuck, enjoying my time on a short getaway. It was the day of rest and my last day of rest before coming home to my sweets. So I rested my head and my fingers as I was stuck with a good book, some sunshine and chair by a pool.
Day 6: Know
There was a lot of bad news today. Bad news in The News and bad news from people we care about. So much bad news my heart started to do that thing where it feels like it's sinking.
I kept trying to pray but the heaviness held on tight and it was hard to ask and seek when hopelessness kept trying to take over.
Then I heard that familiar voice deep down in my spirit.
Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
I remembered that word "know." The Greek is ginozko: to know, to attain, to experience.
The truth is that I know that in this world we will have trouble but He has overcome this world.
I know that in Christ, death does not have the final word.
I know that God is close to the broken hearted and saves those who are crushed in Spirit.
I know He is the same yesterday, today and forever.
I know He is a God of miracles and heals and makes whole and restores.
I know it and may and those with bad news today begin to "ginozko" it.
