Reading in Snatches

There are no "ifs" in God's kingdom. [Corrie] could hear [Betsie's] soft voice saying. His timing is perfect. His will is our hiding place. Lord Jesus, keep me in Your will! Don't let me go mad by poking about outside it.

Lord Jesus, this poking about... I only unearth more pain. I dig; scrabbling, clawing, and for what? At what cost? To the side, behind... I look everywhere but here, in the center. Beloveds surround me, gifts multiply. Jesus. He is enough.

My Shepherd, gather me. Catch my neck with your staff, draw me to Your side. The quiet waters soothe my madness, and it is here that I will rest. I will stay.

...pondering the empty womb...
