Ever have one of those days when you knew you shouldn't have sat down because then your mind would start to wonder? Yeah, well I knew I shouldn't have sat down but I did anyways and wouldn't you know it my mind led me to all the places I'd rather not go. I went to; Unfair-vil, then to, This is too Hard Place, after that I made a detour through, I Can't do This Valley. It was an exhausting journey! Who handed my shortsighted mind the keys anyways?
But there is a happy ending to this not so happy tail. You see I found myself, yet again, in a place of complete and total helplessness. That is a good thing when you have God on your side! Hebrews 13:5-6 says, "Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, 'I will never leave you or forsake you.' So we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper; I will not fear, what can man do to me?"
How good it is to be His child! How marvelous to know He knows all! How magnificent to give all my burdens unto Him who works all things for good to those who love Him and are the called according to His purpose!
So I guess if I hadn't have sat down I never would have cried out to God and I would have missed the chance to be reassured in His Love for me. When all hope seems lost and faith is hard to muster, tell it to God in prayer. He can take even the smallest seed of faith and grow it into a mighty Oak tree able to weather any storm this life can hurl our way.
Lord thank You for revealing Your love for me yet again! Thank You that I know I can trust You with my future! Lord help me to be content with such things as I have please. It seems so easy sometimes to give into despair but in the end that way is much more difficult to travel. I'd rather place all my faith in You God!
