Good morning, DearHeart.
How many times in life do you scratch your head and go “hmm”?
You ask, “where did this even come from?”
Do you ever say, “God, help me to move forward even when my legs get cut out from under me, when the supports feel gone?”
God has a plan, I know that as truth … but what is it?
Then, you blame yourself for this deal (and, really, it’s just a deal) and blame anyone else you can … because the thoughts can spin off like that. Especially when the circumstances just don’t make any sense. But … when the thoughts come … and they will, we must make a choice about who we will be from this day forward, supported or not. Either we will go through life as bitter servants, or we will continue making our Creator famous with our love. I want Him to be famous.
I want Him lifted up, where all men are drawn to Him. My 3 AM thoughts woke me again, and I began flipping through random books of hope where a couple of quotes hit home, restoring my confidence. I can feel the Holy Spirit breathing these truths into me …
There is no conceivable situation in which it is not safe to trust God.
(J. Oswald Sanders)
Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God. (Corrie ten Boom)
DearSoul, may we simply and humbly cling to Him and keep His truths close in our hearts ….
May the words of my mouth, Father, and the meditations of my heart be found acceptable in Your sight, my Strength and my Redeemer (Ps 19:14). Keep me, Father, gripping tightly to Your truth … keep me digging in expectation for the mighty revelation of Your witness. Keep my focus steadfast on You. Forgive me when I settle for less – for the lies that camouflage as truth and bring destruction rather than promise. In your cross, I anchor my hope and my sleep as well.
breathe on me,
breath of God,
I need You,
and carry me again through this day. Amen.
