Sit a While

Micah 7:8

Do not gloat over me, my enemy! Though I have fallen, I will rise. Though I sit in darkness, the Lord will be my light.

A friend made this bench for me.  I knew when I first saw it that I had to have one.  It feels so inviting.  Sometimes I just go out and sit on it alone.  Sometimes I invite my husband or grandkids to sit with me.  And then sometimes I feel that my Lord is there.  And I ask Him, “Just sit with me a while”.

There are times in my life that are dark.  Pain is taking over my soul and I have trouble seeing the light at the end.   And then I remember…….”the Lord will be my light”, I just have to ask Him to sit with me a while.

Lord thank You for sitting with me.  For caring enough about me to listen and for teaching me that sometimes I need to be the one listening.  I cherish the times that we have together, just sitting.  No awkward silence, no non-stop talking, just being.  Lord I pray for my family and friends.  I pray that they will find a place to just sit a while with You.  Amen!
