God talks to you . . . here and there. . . . He says things like "you gotta trust me no matter what it looks like". . . . He shows you everything flowing away . . . "let it go" . . . . The wave goes out . . . like preceding a tsunami . . . everything exposed (now what?) . . . and you think "hmmm, okay. . . .(He gives you the strength to let it go, against your normal proclivities of worry) . . . . "I will trust. . . ." you say in mind. Then months later and He picks it back up and says, "You are going to have trust me, . . . no matter what . . . it looks like. . . ." [This is from a Word my wife got]....
Sometimes His communications come in fits and starts. . . .
If you are tight with Him . . . you know what is what. You don't trick your own mind with other self talk. You wait . . . and listen . . . and then HE SPEAKS . . . and you hear it . . . . . . He continues the conversation. . . .
I love the give and take.....He's real! I love "working out your salvation with fear and trembling" . . . and I'm Reformed. . . . Get it? You work, strive for righteousness AND He is complete control! I love the cosmic tension of that! It can't be any other way. There's no crossing the gulf--and that is the beauty and the glorious mystery. . . .
Praise God. . . . .
