Sunday Reflection - Holy, holy, holy

"'Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty,' who was, and is, and is to come." Revelation 4:8b

In life stress, tension and worry are inescapable.  When these inevitable feelings arise in me I pause briefly, close my eyes and meditate on these words from the book of Revelation.  I repeat them in my head and sometimes aloud.  I hand over my sense of urgency and my need for control, and these words offer comfort.  God is holy.  God is powerful.  He was here before me, he is here now, and he will be here long after I depart.  There is a certain comfort in this.   I can hold in my hand the unknown, knowing that I do not have to analyze it.  God is holy and that is enough.
