I asked.

You answered.

Consider carefully what you do, because you are not judging for man for the Lord, who is with you whenever you give a verdict. Now let the fear of the Lord be upon you, judge carefully, for with the Lord our God there is no injustice or partiality or bribery… act carefully and may the Lord be with those who do well.” -2 Chronicles 19:6-7,11

And so You trust me this much.

I am overwhelmed. On the one hand grateful. On the other anxious. But the latter is not of You.

Now the song in the playlist goes: “Emmanuelle, God with us.” And now it all makes sense. And I burst into tears.

You are never distant. You do not just sit and see from afar. You are here. With me. For me. In me.

I only need to be still and hear You when You speak.

And so You trust me this much. That I would gladly, in every situation, pause and listen. That I shall have nothing to do with anything, anything at all, unless I hear You.

Oh, that I would never miss Your voice!
