God Shouts

Let’s be real.  Life hurts.  As humans it is one of our common denominators.  And it is inevitable.  It may happen to us in different ways; divorce, death, a broken heart, grief, loss, lack, low self-esteem, loneliness, sickness, addiction, abandonment, rejection, betrayal….. but sooner or later we experience pain.

And then God speaks.

Turns out He has actually been speaking all the time, but just as writer C.S. Lewis points out:

~God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks to us in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: It is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world ~
 
I find that pain seems to heighten my ability to hear God speak.  Distractions seem not to matter so much.  What’s really important in life becomes crystal clear.  It’s in these times that I turn to the Psalms.  They are a source of comfort, a source of hope, a source to remind me that, “God is my refuge and my strength.  A very present help in trouble.”  Psalm 46:1

    You couldn’t have said it any better!! I have found your stories to be quite comforting. I have found myself in a place I thought I would never be and yet found the best, God. I did recover but without him how do people survive. Thanks Robyn.
