Cling to Me

May 6, 2019: Isaiah 27, 33-35, 40.

I wasted the morning worrying. I played the expected conversation over and over in my mind. I tried to think of a word picture to explain my point of view.

All of this over a section of insulated foam.

Friday, David removed the foam around one window and the side of a second window. He sealed the cracks that leaked water.

I like to caulk. I sealed all the drafts upstairs. I was putting in my first load of laundry and saw a small crack he missed.

I want to make our basement airtight and watertight. There’s a crack on the left side of the second window. I suspect there is one on the other side. But it’s under a section of foam.

When David came home for lunch, I was putting in the last load of laundry. I prayed as he walked down the stairs.

“Do you like to caulk?” I asked.


“I’ll make a deal with you. If you remove the foam around the second window, scrape the wall and sweep up the mess, I will do all the caulking tomorrow.”


I turned away so he wouldn’t see the look of shock on my face!

“Wow, God,” I whispered, “Thank You!”

A plan was formed without an argument, accusations, or word pictures! That had to be God!

Isaiah 27:5, “Let that vine cling to me for safety, let it find a good and whole life with me; let it hold on for a good and whole life.” The Message
