… the Holy Spirit takes hold of us in our human frailty to empower us in our weakness. (Rom 8:26)
I confess to you … I hit many (too many) times when the only thing that seems to expand is the la la around me and those I love. There are times when my lack of ability to help falls second only to my lack of trust and my silent cries of ‘why?’ don’t seem to go any further than my quivering bottom lip …
I may not be the atypical Christian, and TBH after 35 years of trying to be one I’m partly ashamed of writing this BUT one thing I know, is that my Lord is FAITHFUL!
But me, I’m not giving up. I’m sticking around to see what GOD will do. I’m waiting for God to make things right. I’m counting on God to listen to me. Don’t, enemy, crow over me. I’m down, but I’m not out. I’m sitting in the dark right now, but GOD is my light. I can take GOD ’s punishing rage. I deserve it—I sinned. But it’s not forever. He’s on my side and is going to get me out of this. He’ll turn on the lights and show me his ways. I’ll see the whole picture and how right he is. And my enemy will see it, too, and be discredited—yes, disgraced! This enemy who kept taunting, “So where is this GOD of yours?” I’m going to see it with these, my own eyes— my enemy disgraced, trash in the gutter. (Micah 7:7) ❤️
