The following is a observation I made/revelation God showed me while studying my devotional passage for today. It can also be found on my Facebook, under Notes: Returning & Resting.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++One of my new favorite songs lately is Casting Crowns' "Come to the Well," the title track of their latest album. If you have not heard this song, then all I can tell you is to go buy it and listen. Regardless, there's a line from the verse after the first chorus that always catches my attention every time:
"Just rest in my arms a while, you'll feel the change, my child
When you come to the well"
As I was reading my devotional today, entitled "Waiting for Humility," I nearly did a spit take when I read the following verse: "For the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel, has said: 'You will be delivered by returning and resting; your strength will lie in quiet confidence. But you are not willing.'" - Isaiah 30:15 (HCSB). While I suppose I shouldn't be surprised how God moves in mysterious ways, I can't help but be amazed in the ways God can take the disparate threads of our existence and weave them together to show us He's there for us.
