Morning Devotional:

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.

– Beth
