"Where in the mess of things are you, God? You around at all, God? Where are You who unlock the wind from its storehouses, who raises the seas from the deep? Don’t You hear our heart-pounding begging when our prodigals run toward pits, when our people reel with diagnoses, when our veins scream with chemo hurtling after the ravaging cancer? And where exactly are You looking when the very people who are supposed to hold our hearts next to theirs, just get up & drop us?
Where are you, God?
God is in you, the redeemed and the claimed and the named, God is in you, always rising and raising you up again.
God’s moved right in, bent low and slipped in through the cracks of your broken heart, and camps within you and this is exactly where He is:
He’s fighting for you, so you can be still.
He’s going right before you, always making a way.
He’s carrying you, so you can lean into the strength of the Universe.
He’s the courage in your veins, the drumbeat of the brave in your heart, the resilient grit in your every rising, your every step forward.
He’s in the love that always finds a way to find you.
Never doubt that He’s in the hope that raises your chin, that looks you straight in the eye and believes that you will meet grace again and again and that grace is the most unstoppable force in the universe and that grace gives you enough, makes you enough, and will be all of your enough and it is always on time, not a moment too soon and never a moment too late — and you can take that to the bank.
Oh Soul, never doubt where He is. Look around — He’s moved right in! -AnnVoscamp
