Thank God for the get up!

I have been dealing with a situation lately that has had me down for awhile. It’s been hard to exist with a smile, laugh at a joke, enjoy people, and even hard to pray. But this morning, waking up early, I heard the words from Psalms 61, “… when my heart is overwhelmed, lead me to the rock that is higher than I.” My spirit leaped with hope and joy, something I haven’t felt in awhile.

Even in my dark, uncertain moments, God reassures us, he is there. As I was reading, the scripture Ephesians 3:20, “Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” Thank God, he knows and he cares. Thank God for the lifted burden. The problems are not over by man’s eye, but by faith, it is finished. Thank God because he got up for me and for you.

    Hey Sis. It appears that you & I have been having a similar experience. I’ve been reading lately how feeling alone is God separating us to prepare us for the Holy Spirit’s specific guidance. I’ve been there, not wanting to go anywhere, speak to anyone, and no desire to hear God’s word or read it for that matter. I recognized that and it bothered me. Although I attributed it to being in a “dark” place, perhaps it was in a resting space. Kinda like a rest stop off the highway of life and my daily devotionals. I’ve learned to refrain from labeling my life adventure using words like sad, discouraged or hard. My word again this year is “surrender”. Like you said I BELIEVE that the Lord is with me wherever I go (Joshua 1:9). Although sometimes my desire is to curl up into a ball and avoid others, I’m still in the nook of Gods loving arms, cradled until I’m prepared to walk again. Thank you for sharing Tina. I’m here for you always. With love~ Drea
