Sometimes my 2 ½ yr old son wakes up crying in the middle of the night. Joanne usually goes in, sometimes we both will if he’s really upset. Sometimes, as she holds him, I lean in and place my cheek against his cheek, or on his forehead, right in close. And I whisper, “It’s ok Thomas. Mommy is here. Daddy is here. It’s ok.” And as he calms down, he’ll push his face back against mine – he’ll nestle in. He’ll relax. And He’ll go back to sleep, and I’ll see the peace of sleep on his face once again.

I don’t know what it is that makes Thomas so upset sometimes, and I don’t know what storm is raging in your soul today. But I do know this – God the Father holds you. God the Son leans over you and places His cheek against yours and says, “It’s ok. I’m here.” And God the Spirit comes and brings peace in the midst of the storm.
