Someone’s Crazy, Lord

But you Lord are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high. I call out to the Lord, and he answers me from his holy mountain.
Psalm 3:3 & 4

 Our oldest daughter is quite the singer. When she was little she would sing songs at the top of her lungs whether she knew the correct words or not.

We heard “Deef and Wide” (Deep and Wide), “Sing Rosanna” (Sing Hosanna), “I’ve got Fee Fi the River” (Peace Like a River) to name a few.

My favorite though I heard while waking past her bedroom one day, “Someone’s Crazy Lord, Kum Ba Ya.” Oh yeah, she hit that nail on the head. Sometimes life can get extremely crazy and out of hand. What a better way to withstand the chaos than to acknowledge God’s presence and ask him to walk through it with us. Come by here.

Many times our first reaction is to go tell anyone who will listen. Although God gives us trusted friends we can share with, running around and squawking to everyone can stir up more craziness and drama than less.

We need (I need) to take a deep breath and call on Him. He listens, He reassures, He guides us. He very well may lead us to a friend who has gone through something similar to what we are facing, but He may also simply want us to rest in Him. He may or may not take away the stressful situation, but He promises to be our strength through it.

Our hope, our joy, our respite from the craziness is God. What a loving, caring God He is.

So these days when “someone is crazy here”, I try to remember to call on the God who is my hope, my peace, and my refuge. I know that He can calm even my “crazy” storm.

God, thank you that when we call on You, You answer with what we need to hear.
