The other night, David kept calling for me. I felt the surge of impatience (I want to spend time with my husband), and swell of smug indifference (It’s not good for him to be demanding to see me). Reluctantly, I went to comfort him (and tell him to be quiet), and I realized he was actually afraid of the thunder and lightning outside, though he had not said so. I fell back on the old fear standby– Psalm 56:3. Guess it didn’t help, because David shortly called out again.
I asked Lee to go say something spiritual to him. 🙂 He came back and David was quiet. I was curious what Lee had said, so I asked.Â I just told him, God made the storm, so God is bigger than the storm and He can take care of you. What was fascinating was that I was focusing on the relationship (God is with me) and Lee was focusing on the power (God is mighty). Insight into the male mind, perhaps?
