How amazing that through grief, sorrow and pain God is leading and showing me the “treasures of darkness” and the “riches stored in secret places”. Hidden and undiscovered before Mike’s death, that I may know more intimately and draw more closely to our Father who calls us by name.
Isaiah 45:3 (New International Version)
3 I will give you the treasures of darkness,
riches stored in secret places,
so that you may know that I am the LORD,
the God of Israel, who summons you by name.
He is saying to me as he did his disciples
John 16:12 (King James Version)
12I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.
As a family we can say we have found His Presence, Grace and Glory in that “darkness” & “secret places”…..and how do I write that in English! Well there are times I am so overwhelmed with his love and grace I simply cry. There is a peace in our hearts, a lack of turmoil. His Sovereignty and attention to detail are mind blowing. His ways are perfection, timed to eternal precision. His Glory is all around us and nature reveals that magnificence.
