There's a shift happening in my life. The waters have calmed for me personally but I as I look around I see others still in the storm. They can't hear me anymore, they've turned a deaf ear to me. All I can do is watch and pray. The storm is rising against them, I see it. I know I can't go pull them out. I know they have to get through it on their own, but watching them is agonizing.
I turn to the Lord who brought me out of the storm and I cry out to Him who saves. I cry from a place so deep inside I finally get a glimpse of what the bible means when it says Jesus prayed and His sweat was as drops of blood. I feel the very air of life squeeze out of me and I realize I have poured out my heart completely to the Lord, there is nothing left for me to do.
Now I must hold onto the promises of God. I must trust and obey. I must walk and not grow weary.
"When my soul fainted within me I remembered the Lord; and my prayer came unto thee." Jonah 2:7
Proverbs one a day for September
Proverbs 6:1-5 Spoke to me personally as timely advice and a reminder of boundaries I should keep.
Verses 6-19 made the tears stream down my face. I can't exactly speak of it but just know that a conversation I had last night before going to bed was about this. AGAIN, I wake up to to God's Word and discover HE KNOWS. Yet, these verses hurt my very heart because I do not know the hearts of those I'm considering, I can only witness their actions and hear their words. So, I cry out to God to save them. "Please dear Lord Jesus, bring them through the storm safely."
