Quiet Time With God, Especially When Things Aren’t Going Well

As my journey continues, I find the closer I pull toward God, the more He talks to me.

Now on a regular basis, God will send a little message through song just for me. I love that. It's so comforting.
Have you ever had  a rough day? I know I have.  Bad days are full speed ahead days where nothing seems to go right.

How do I cope with those days?

I turn up the music. Click here to watch the video for “Turn Up The Music” by Point of Grace

When I got up this morning, God instantly placed these lyrics in my head…… 

 
“Oh how He loves us,
 
Oh, oh how He loves us,
how He loves us,
how He loves us all. “
 
This song has become kind of a security blanket for me, an instant hug from God. I know I shared this sentiment before.
God is here. God is always here. “And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (from Matthew 28:20)
God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5
 
With this song, How He Loves Us, the lyrics start by saying.
“He is jealous for me,
Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,
Bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden,
I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realise just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me. “
 
So the next time the world seems to be gaining up on you, or even if it's just a few people in your world, step away from it all, go to your quiet place, which may mean turning up the music. Do what works for you.
Just know God loves you and it's all going to be OK.
