“I cried out, “I am slipping!” but your unfailing love, O LORD, supported me. When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer.”
I saw this today and it jumped out to me because as temporary residents of this place our minds and feelings can shift easily. We need to remember who our rock is and that He is always there, so as we live we must never forget to go to Him. We are told in Matthew chapter 11 verse 28, “Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” See He wants to help us as we go through this crazy world, all we need to do is come to Him.
We also have the Holy Spirit in us leading us to Him and giving us the strength to move in that direction. See it is so easy for us to just say I am tired and get depressed but we need to remember the promises that we have in Christ and stay focused on all the good. In Ephesians chapter 3 verses 16-17 we see what can happen when we stay connected to Him in all ways. “I pray that from His glorious, unlimited resources He will empower you with inner strength through His Spirit. Then Christ will make His home in your hearts as you trust in Him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong.” When you feel tired or feel like slipping remember that He is there, so we need to build on His word and let the Spirit strengthen us so we can be who He created us to be. Amen
