The Gentle Savior

Hi friends. It's been a while since I last posted. These are some thoughts I shared on Facebook earlier today - thoughts I hope will get you thinking about your own relationship with the Lord. For that reason I'm sharing them here:
I've just been thinking - aren't you glad God generally communicates with us gently? How many of us really want to be shaken with a heavy hand or shouted at or kicked in the pants with some dramatic revelation? Isn't it a blessing to be caressed by the Spirit, touched by His love, revived by His light? Why should I want for bold, sensational, in-your-face communication when I can enjoy the breathtaking beauty of His quiet love? As I work through struggles I realize I am most grateful for precious, intimate moments with the Lord - moments characterized not by melodrama but by quiet meditation.
