Voices from the box on my desk tell me the world is too hot, too wet, too cold, too out of control.

Those voices shout doomsday declarations about the industry I’m involved in. They tell me that evil is on the rise and justice is on the lam. That I need more money, a smaller figure, a newer car, a bigger house.

And then I walk outside and see the morning. Again. Just like yesterday. And I hear God say, “I’ve got this.”

If there were no electricity, we could still hear God.

Where morning dawns and evening fades

You call forth songs of joy.

Psalm 65:8 NIV


  1. Well, the ones in my head help me write stories. 🙂

      Love it.

  2. Davalynn, you have such a beautiful way with words! I would NEVER have thought of listening like that to God! All i could think of when I read your question was, I listen to my Dr. tell me that I have another hurdle to get over, then I finish reading your article….and I think why do I not hear God tell me it is well!! Such an eye opener for me anyway….thanks so much, you have helped more than you can ever know. Blessings….

      Sometimes we’re just not still enough, are we. Blessings, Ruth.

  3. So blessed to have connected with you!!

      Thank you, Linda.

  4. Beautifully said, Davalynn. Thanks for sharing these encouraging words. The words you’re referring to–the ones that shout duck for cover or be this person or that or that I don’t have enough of things–are the ones that pounce upon me at night when I’m the most tired and weakest. I thank God for who He is… you are so right to turn it all back to Him.

      Yes, Elaine. Our enemy knows when to fire. But thank God, He knows how to deliver.

  5. Very true. We get caught up in the cycle of words whirling around us. I’m happier if I’m not on line, seeing what evil people are doing. God is supreme…above all else. He whispers and we hear–if we want to.

      And such wonderful, life-giving whispers they are! Thanks, Karen.

    Being new to Colorado, I find myself looking towards the sky, more, now that I am a “mile high”. I love these opportunities to see God’s playfulness in the clouds. Reminding me with each little stir of wind, he is with us. May we keep listening and looking for Him. He is here for the asking!

    1. davalynn

      RHB – Amen. He’s right there!
