Without Him? Lost!
I was talking to my daughter in law the other day about some circumstances in my life at this moment and she asked me what was next. You know I didn’t even have to think, which was a little surprising to me, but my response was, “I’m not sure but I’m positive it will be better”.
That would not have been my answer 30 years ago when I found myself newly divorced. That would not have been my answer 18 years ago with a sick child and a wayward child. Not 13 years ago when there was a real possibility of finding myself alone again. And surely, you’d say, how about 7 years ago as we move away from everything and everyone I knew, including our children, to move to a new state. Nope not even 7 years ago. And actually several since then. But now, my answer is, “I’m not sure but I’m positive it will be better”.
I can say that with surety because I lived through 30 years ago, 18 years ago, 13 years ago and even 7 years ago to find myself better than then. At the time I wouldn’t have thought it possible, but with HIM everything is possible.
Psalm 18:16 He reached down from heaven and took me and drew me out of my great trials. He rescued me from deep waters.
I just found a new life song. One that creates huge tears to well up in my eyes. Because today, I can say, that He rescued me with faith that he will also rescue me now.
Life rarely ever throws at you what you expect. And life, although has some of the most glorious times, also can have some of the hardest. But in this life, God has never gave up on me and always fought my battles for me.
To Him I am grateful! Amen!
