There’s an old story of Elijah hiding in the cave …
He believed he was finished
He was the only one left
He would stay there and die
The earth was finished
Everything was hopeless
We overlook
How the Lord had fed him all along the way
Seeing that he was burned out
fed him 40 days and nights
with him all that time…
And we overlook
How he brought an earthquake
And a wind storm
A pillar of fire but the Lord wasn’t in any of it …
He was in the calm…
Remember who you are
The quiet
The calm
The ability to adapt
To create
To hold
And to know…
To know…
Build your life
Quietly and assuredly
There are no shortcuts
The world is not ending
You are not alone
In the calm
