Yesterday was such a nice day. The sun stayed hidden most of the day, and we got a steady rain. It was relaxing, giving me a great excuse to listen to the kids play as I read Hidden Figures instead of doing housework. A slow steady rain…..calm, relaxing…..
And I think of rocking my children, whether I snuggled with them in the recliner or swayed with them in the middle of the living room singing to them, the slow steady motion was calm and relaxing, reducing their tears.
I like steady.
Steady is safe.
Yet, so much about life is unsteady. We don’t know what tomorrow holds. We don’t know what our test results will be. We don’t know if the money will be there to pay the bills. So much makes our lives unsteady, uncertain, scary.
However, there is One who is steady. One who is our Firm Foundation. In Him we are safe, we can remain calm, and we can find rest. He wraps his arms around us, just as we would our own children. Rocking, swaying, bringing comfort, and drying our tears.
When life is rocky and difficult, we can find hope an assurance in Him because he is never changing.
