Messages

“‘For this is what the Sovereign LORD says: I myself will search for my sheep and look after them. 12As a shepherd looks after his scattered flock when he is with them, so will I look after my sheep. I will rescue them from all the places where they were scattered on a day of clouds and darkness.”

Ezekiel 34:11-12

How often do we hear messages and ignore them? Too many times to count. I’m guilty. Last week, I was reading a book and one lesson stood out. Listen to your messages. They are all around us – nature, people, objects, animals, music or within ourselves. All we have to do is listen.

Messages are easy to ignore. A song that plays over and over in our head. Do we block it out? Or do we listen? A smile from a stranger. Do we smile back? Or do we ignore it? A wave from a child in the store. Do we wave back? Or do we think “thank God my kids are grown?”

The tiniest experiences in our day are given to us to bring us joy. They are there to remind us that there is good in each and every day. If we take time to see the small, the big will not consume us. Not only will it not consume us, we will be able to overcome anything.

A few days ago, I kept seeing butterflies everywhere I went. Not one, but a minimum of two or three. So pretty. I had not “seen” a butterfly for years. Of course, I had to look up its symbolism. It had many meanings but one stuck out. Tune into your emotional or spiritual life. Hmmm.

So, when I woke up this morning with the song “Rescue” by Lauren Daigle playing in my head on repeat. I decided to listen. I realized that I had a message. He was telling me that no matter what, He will be my rescuer. Yours too!

Rescue

You are not hidden

There’s never been a moment

You were forgotten

You are not hopeless

Though you have been broken

Your innocence stolen

I hear you whisper underneath your breath

I hear your SOS, your SOS

I will send out an army to find you

In the middle of the darkest night

It’s true, I will rescue you

There is no distance

That cannot be covered

Over and over

You’re not defenseless

I’ll be your shelter I’ll be your armor

I hear you whisper underneath your breath

I hear your SOS, your SOS

I will send out an army to find you In the middle of the darkest night

It’s true, I will rescue you I will never stop marching to reach you

In the middle of the hardest fight

It’s true, I will rescue you

I hear the whisper underneath your breath

I hear you whisper, you have nothing left

I will send out an army to find you

In the middle of the darkest night It’s true,

I will rescue you

I will never stop marching to reach you

In the middle of the hardest fight

It’s true, I will rescue you

Oh, I will rescue you
