O taste and see that the Lord is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him. Psalm 34:8
She could neither read nor write, but that didn’t stop Grandma Biggs from singing praises to the Lord.
Picture a little girl just about to enter Grandma’s kitchen for a drink of water. The sound of beautiful singing slows her footsteps. Peaking around the corner, a curious scene unfolds.
Grandma is all alone in her kitchen. Arms raised, feet dancing, and face aglow as she lifts her voice and sings a beautiful melodic song.
I was that little girl. A little bit afraid and way too young to understand
what I was seeing. Yet I somehow knew this was a sacred moment
and I was not to interrupt. My grandmother was standing on Holy Ground.
That precious memory still warms my heart today as I wonder how my grandmother would react had she been living during the coronavirus pandemic.
Would she be shut up to fear or shut in to faith? Would she whine and complain? Would she worry or worship?
I’ve no doubt what Grandma would do. Day by day she would be shut in to faith, fully trusting, and leaning on the Sovereign Lord who is in full control.
Chooseing not to whine, worry or complain, she would lift her hands
in worship to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
And as in all the hard times of her life, she would pray this thing through and receive the peace of God that passes all understanding.
And you better believe Grandma would be in her kitchen, preparing delicious meals, whipping up those biscuits, and wearing a smile that was a foretaste of heaven.
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, so that whosoever believes in Him, should not perish,
but have everlasting life. John 3:16
And we know that God causes all things to work together for good
for those who love the Lord. For those who are called
according to His purpose. Romans 8:28
