So it was a day where all I wanted to do was cry. A bad day all the way around. I got home that evening, tossed my keys onto the counter, wishing I could throw in the proverbial towel as well. I was feeling singed from the fire of the day’s trials, drowning in misery and feeling very much alone. I even had myself one of those ugly cries, too – one where you hope your tissues are the ones with lotion in them.
I got to this point where I realized I could do one of two things. I could stay in that place or I could crawl into God’s lap and thankfully, I chose the latter. I lifted up my hands to God and said, “Lord, I can’t handle it. I can’t take all of this so I am giving it all to you. The only thing I am holding onto is You so don’t let me go.”
God is so good, because I got the most beautiful reply in return. I flipped open my Bible to find this passage from Isaiah 43:
“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire. you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.”
He is there for you in your toughest times, and He is your Savior. Don’t forget that.
What do you wish someone taught you a long time ago?
