The children learn from this, first - that God loves a good party, and second - that even when His is not seen or mentioned, He is in absolute control.
|The "Wailing Wall"|
I am learning that He is moving in dynamic ways, just beyond my range of vision, yet is as close as breathing. He is never so near or tender as when He is silent and unseen.
And Jesus, Who knows what it means to be alone, helpless and in pain, can minister to us through His Holy Spirit when we open ourselves to Him. Trusting Him, silent and unseen, allows us to praise and turn from even severe pain to worship. I'm not saying the pain goes away, but being in the awesome one-to-one presence of God moves my spirit to a different place altogether.
I pray that you will find this to be an effective weapon - for we enter into His presence with praise and thanksgiving.
