Weeks earlier her life had changed drastically. The life that she had known was gone. She felt so alone and empty! How could it have turned out this way?
Hours later she lay awake in bed…oh how desperately she wished sleep would come. Her brain wouldn’t turn off and, once again, the memories haunted her thoughts. It was at that moment that she realized that all she could do was cry out to God. She knew He was there. She knew He was listening. She knew how desperately He loved her. And she desperately needed to feel His presence!
As she began to cry out to God she realized that she had no idea what or how to even pray. Then a verse came to mind – Romans 8:26, “In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.”
She wasn’t sure how long she had been sitting there rocking herself and allowing the Spirit to intercede on her behalf but she knew that something was different. It was in that moment that she felt it…a peace that she knew only the Lord could provide. Though everything she had known had been torn away, she knew she could trust her Heavenly Father. He knew the plans He had for her. Even though she didn’t know what those plans were she knew she was safe in His arms!
I pray that you will run to the safety of the Father’s arms so that you too can feel His peace!
