Out Of The Depths Of Death
As I was praying this morning for guidance about our struggling little web store and help with my stinky attitude when I am with child, I started to feel sad and alone again.
Then God led me to Psalm 86:13.
“for your love for me is very great. You have rescued me from the depths of death!”
This verse almost brought me to tears, reminding me of what I have been through in my life, how close I was to eternal death all those years ago, and how God pulled me up out of the mirey clay and set my feet upon firm stone. He was with me then, in my darkest moments, when I was ignoring and denying Him; and He is with me now, teaching me, molding me, and guiding me.
I really needed to be reminded of His presence, His love, and His grace. Because, lately, I haven’t been hearing Him answer me. I have heard that many Christians, no matter how devout, go through the same thing every so often but that doesn’t make me feel any better.
I hold onto my faith that if I need something God would surely provide it, he always has. I remind myself that God is not ignoring me. Maybe he isn’t talking to me because I am not ready to hear what he has to say, or maybe he wants me to wait – His timing is, after all, perfect.
My lessons in patience are not my favorite but they are lessons I must learn. So, I will wait on Him.
