Still the Enemy

0321151242bShe’d look out across the water, in her own little world. Then she’d look down at her feet and watch the cold water running over her flip-flops; across her toes. It’s mid-march and the water is still very cold, but it didn’t seem to bother her.

For several minutes she stood seemingly mesmerized by the view across the lake and the feel and movement of water across her bare toes. How I wish I could have entered her mind to know what she was thinking. Or, perhaps, to hear what she was hearing.

0321151242I also wish she could have entered mine. To know what an impact her little time of devotion had in encouraging me.

Psalm 8 contains the words, “Out of the mouths of babies and infants, you have established strength because of your foes, to still the enemy and the avenger.”

For a moment I was caught up and away, just as Sarah was. I was encouraged; for at that moment God was near and the enemy was far away. Caught up in the wonder of little things that are in no way insignificant.

To recognize the wonder, to stand in awe…. to be still and know that He is God is to still the enemy.
