No News Is Good News

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.

He’s Got This

So there might be a whole lot fear heaped up ahead on the road you travel right now and panic might be driving the motor car and it’s reeling out of chaotic control now, heading right to your doorstep. And there it sits heavy on your shoulders right in the middle of that heap of fear and it’s got you pinned underneath it’s weight and yeah, the old saying that “No news is good news” has changed because just maybe we got news and it wasn’t good after all. No news was better wasn’t it? And it’s processing in our heads and our hearts right now and it’s a difficult place with hard steps and I wonder what it is it that has caused panic and fear to emerge with such force to make you want to throw in the towel and run fast in the other direction? We can’t do it! We can’t run away! We can’t run anywhere because our story is our story and it’s us and it’s ours to deal with. So we can’t make a get-a-way except straight into the outstretched arms of Jesus and step into His peace, even right where we are! You gotta know He’s got this. Your stuff has been Father filtered and even though it’s tough, it has His stamp of approval for this moment. And even though it’s a hard place, He has it and He has your back and He has unlimited grace enough to get you through. So beautiful soul, when the brokenness is harsh and the news is bleak and the pain is unbearable, and the mind can’t focus, rest in the nail pierced hands of the Savior, the Sovereign One who knows the pain. Yeah, for sure the One who spoke peace into the vicious storms and calmed the raging waters can and will whisper peace into your life.

Mark 4: 38 – 40
“Jesus Himself was in the stern, asleep on the cushion; and they woke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?” And He got up and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Hush, be still.” And the wind died down and it became perfectly calm. And He said to them, “Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith?”…

John 14: 27
“Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

God Bless pen
