This month is challenging. We are facing one of the most difficult times in our lives.
No, we aren’t despairing over children who have walked away from the Lord.
We aren’t facing unfaithfulness in our marriage.
We are simply having to let go of life as we know it. Letting go of what we want for what God wills. It is hard. But we trust GOD. He alone is sovereign – which means simply, He controls all the details about which we tend to worry.
We were in the car last night and this song based on Psalm 130 played, “Out of the depths, O Lord, I cry to you. When I am tempted to despair.” We were both caught up in the sweet presence of God. He alone can help us when we are afraid.
When my (Debi) Dad was dying of brain cancer in 2003, it was worship alone which reached the depths of my pain. I have learned in the hard times to run to Him. He can comfort and help in a way that brings relief, strength and most of all hope.
He is faithful.
What trials are you facing today? Take them to God who is ready to comfort you and help you. Spend some time today worshiping the lover of your soul. It will lift the burden in a way nothing else can. This is the song we listened to – we believe it is anointed with the Spirit of God. Let His presence lift you up and bring new perspective. We are not as those who are without hope.
