Christmas 2013 was over and the New Year of 2014 was a new beginning when all of a sudden I was in a tizzy. Webster’s Dictionary defines “tizzy” as a tremble with excitement or fear. This tizzy happens every so often and at this time I was not tossing and turning through the night as in Psalm 56:8, but in the light of a most beautiful day.
Widowhood seems to bring about different moods at moments unexpected. On this occasion I was ready to call one of my sons and tell him, “I’m leaving in my car and don’t know where I am going but if you want to come along, I will enjoy your company!”
Before I made the first call, my oldest son, Eddie, from Idaho, called and his first words were, ”Mom are you okay? Wendy and I have been worried about you.” If you know me, I will always say, “I’m fine.” Hearing from him eased the tremble and made the difference from wasting gas in my car and wearing away rubber on my tires on an unnecessary drive! Appreciate so much Eddie’s sensitivity. God is so good!
I rest in the assurance in the rest of Psalm 56:8 you have collected all my tears and preserved them in your bottle. I know He is keeping all my tears close to His heart.
Psalm 57:1-2 is one I have breathed silently so many times. I will hide beneath the shadow of your wings until this storm is past. I will cry to the God of heaven who does such wonders for me. I know there will be other “tizzy” days and I know God is for me and I am trusting God for my life every day!
