I must admit that there have been days in the past month when I did not want to step out of my house.
Have you had days like that? When the only thing you can do is just to do the next thing that needs doing and then the thing after that…
My friend, J, said the other day that she felt she was losing her ‘saltiness’. I could relate to that. That feeling that you haven’t got enough of what you need in yourself that you can’t even ‘flavour’ the lives of those around you.
Psalms 63:8 (NIV) -?I cling to you; your right hand upholds me.
On?weak and vulnerable?days, I have clinged on to what I know is true about the God who loves me:
- That God sends people that you need at the right time – whether in person or messages
- That God will work things out for good – He has the power to transform messiness
- That each and everyone of us is loved by God and while we are alive and breathing the air on this earth, we still have the opportunity to be put to good use by our loving Father in any circumstance.
Periods of confusion, darkness and sadness can make us turn?away from friendships and ultimately, from God.
Or, we can cling to Him and His promises. One promise at at time. One step a time. One right choice at a time.
Romans 8:28 (NIV) – And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
