So what’s the news today? What’s hot off the press and just waiting for your attention? Oh I know there’s most likely something that has your focus and just when we think that it’s all ok with one thing something else steps up to the plate and scores a home run with demands of time or finances or health or just some plain old answer to some earth shattering question, doesn’t it? Fact is, there isn’t always time, or money or any just plain old answer to give, not even one last time. Not any more! Not this time! You’ve been totally spent and so has your time, your effort, your finances and your emotions.
Where do you go then? Where do you go when everything has gone and left you reeling in conundrum and chaos with still another glaring issue at the beginning of a new day at the beginning of a new year?
Well, a talk with God is good for starters. Your news hasn’t caught Him off guard! These harsh demands are not ‘news’ to Him. He’s got them for you! He holds them for you! He can orchestrate them perfectly! He knows you inside and outside, right side up and inside out. Yeah, the thing is too, He cares about it all, because He cares about you! You’re the apple of His eye and His delight is in you, even when the “hot off the press” news, pounds in your ears with every heartbeat, He still cares! So when the “Just fixed’ breaks once more, or the resolved issue cracks open yet again, just find some quiet place in some quiet space and hear God out! Let Him speak into your anguished heart and beautiful soul about your latest news! He understands perfectly the next step and is eager to share with you, His loved creation.
David voices so beautifully the reasons why all people should praise and revere God for His almighty power and merciful care, when he pens Psalm 65 and in 65: 1 he writes, “What mighty praise O God belongs to You in Zion…4: What joy for those You choose to bring near, those who live in your holy courts. What festivities await us inside your holy Temple. 7: You quieted the raging ocean, with their pounding waves and silenced the shouting of the nation…for where the sun rises and where it sets, You inspire shouts of joy.”
So when “No news is good news” is met with that dreadful “Not so good news”, let Him calm your pounding heart and silence your fears. When you’re there with Him in that quiet place ~ that holy place ~ that holy Temple of your heart and soul, join Him in the festivities of the moment as He speaks peace and love and joy into your news.
