Daily Inspiration - September 16

Psalm 34:4 - I sought the Lord and He answered me, and delivered me from all my fears.

I used this message below for the Stephen Ministry 2019 Advent calendar pertaining to a time in my life when I needed God but couldn’t find my way to Him.

“God isn’t only in church”

During the most difficult time in my life, after losing our daughter in a horrible auto accident, I found it very difficult to go to the church where she was married and then had her funeral only a year later. My brother told me “God isn’t only in church”.

So, I decided to connect with God through nature.  I became a runner and found God all around me by the lake, near the trees, and in the sounds of nature with the birds chirping...He was with me...all around me and I truly felt connected with Him and comforted by His presence.

I feel this is apropos at this time of COVID-19 when we are unable to gather in our church.   WE CAN STILL FEEL GOD EVERYWHERE.
