Beside the Beloved

This beautiful youtube video spoke just what I needed to hear last night.

The Beloved is here beside me speaking in a gentle whisper. Be still and you too will hear; the God who loves you is in the gentle breeze. God is not in the raging fire…God is not in the trembling of the earthquake…

These verses from the book of Kings have always been a reminder to me. A reminder to be aware of the slightest inkling of the presence of God. He surrounds us, without restricting or binding us, with his presence.

1 Kings 19:11-13 

 The LORD said, “Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the LORD, for the LORD is about to pass by.”

   Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake.  After the earthquake came a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper. When Elijah heard it, he pulled his cloak over his face and went out and stood at the mouth of the cave.

   Then a voice said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”
