Psalm 69:1-3: Save me, O God! For the waters have come up to my neck! I sink in deep mire, where there is no standing; I have come into deep waters where the floods overflow me. I am weary with my crying; my throat is dry; my eyes fail while I wait for my God!
Have you ever had to face something that you just didn’t know how you were going to face? Welcome to Coffee Hour with Chicklit Power and Wednesday’s Word with Trench Classes United.
Sometimes life can feel like waves of an ocean. Perhaps there’s a wave coming and you’re trying to run from it. Ask the one who has just discovered their significant other has been cheating on them, or lying to them, or the patient who’s just been told they have cancer; or the one who has just received a notice of foreclosure in the mail, or the young couple working really hard and still not making it.
Let’s face it; life is like an ocean, taking us to unseen places, places without borders, per se, as the waves of life knock us to and fro.
But what would it look like if we could just determine in our soul to just try and stand in what feels like sinking sand, our hand in His, maybe gripping it really hard, but still, our hand in His, and as the wave came toward us, we cast the white flag of surrender up and in our fatigue, our eyes and souls exhausted from crying out in fear, we just lean in…to Him and really experience the beauty of trusting that He will save us, and pick us up if He has to, to carry us through that wave of a circumstance, and once again, set us down…on solid ground.
Abba, I want to trust you like that…I am claiming that you will not only guide me upwards towards a new territory, but you will cause me to soar on wings of eagles towards new territory.
What about you, what would you like Him to save you from? What has you weary and crying?
